Two-go – 1987 Yugo GV and 1988 Yugo 45

March 22, 2016

Once the butt of many jokes, together with the Hyundai Excel of the same time, the Yugo has now been largely forgotten by most people under age 30. Which, incidentally, is about how old the oldest Yugo is – their North American run lasted from 1985 to 1990. As has been pointed out here before, while they’ve been much maligned in the past, they share many Fiat 128 parts and therefore qualify for similar performance upgrades. And indeed, with a little work, some enthusiasts have made these into fun little go-karts that will hold their own on back roads and autocross tracks. That said, many were neglected, and quite a few still remain as I’ll-get-to-it-someday projects in someone’s back yard. To wit, one example is this 1987 Yugo GV for sale for $1000 in Atlanta, GA.
