Bullsh!t. I don't think a Yugo would do 90MPH in a free fall.

Wow... not bad for a carbbed SOHC 1.3L eastern bloc POS. Imagine the look on those ricers when you dust them, LOL

Drag racers... proving that you can even make crap run faster than diaherrea.

Isn't the Yugo just a rebadged Fiat w/poor quality control?

No. Fiat had a contract to build Yugos in their factory.

Nope. Some old Ladas were based on even older Fiats though.

With the engine size it is like a big motorcycle engine.

Hahahahahaaaaahaha

My first car was unfortunately a YUGO and my brother and I got it up to 115 mph. The entire car was shaking so bad we were sure it was going to fall apart on us!! If the body hadn't fallen apart it was a good car!!

Also, if anyone lives in Cincinnati about 7 years ago John Phillips (helicopter traffic pilot) was following my mom on 71S and was saying that there was a little Yugo next to Kings Island doing at least 80! Yup, that's my mom...booking in the Yugo!

Heh...John Phillips was one of the best helicopter traffic reporters I've ever heard. It was a riot to hear him admonish truckers for left-lane blocking or yell at idiots he saw in the rush hour crowd One exchange I heard: "Hey A$$hole! Yeah you in the black Mustang! Swift move trying to force someone off the road there! I just called the cops on you in case you're wondering!"
