I don't think the Yugo is known by the general public in the Netherlands, I don't think they sold them here, Lada is better known because they used to be sold here. Maybe they still are, but you almost never see them on the road.

There are some Yugos in Poland, I've noticed several of them in Warsaw. They are beautifully ugly
And they are cheap as dirt, you can buy one built in 90' for less than 200€. And I believe that it would still work!

I tried to find some Yugo's on the Dutch automotive site "autotrack". Result: 1 motorbike. 0 cars.

I could find only 15 Lada's.

I always wanted to buy some tiny cheap car just for fun.

Everyone in Poland import cars from West, so why don't you go the other way?

oooh, i had Yugo 5 years ago! sold for €250 he consumpted 14 litres

intersting, we have never found Yugos ugly here in ex-yu. generally, the ugliest socialistic cars were Dacia, Škoda and Polonez. Polonez was not often seen and it wasn't actually considered as ugly, but Polonez drivers were considered as weirdos

Dacia has some decent cars nowadays, with 1.5 dCi engines from Renault, those are good. I have such an engine, never let me down, and very fuel efficient (5l / 100km).

Yay, I have just been informed that my ISP will increase the internet speed from 10 mbit to 20 mbit without an increase of monthly fees! That's nice

Clio or Megane?

I've got Laguna 1.9 dCi (2005), and I'm very pleased with it. It spends 7 l / 100 km, but I'm driving it in the city for 90% of the time, and I'm not saving it at all.

What? How you can consider this ugly?:



It was designed by Giugiaro, you know

And about Dacia, my parents drove Dacia 1300 in the 80'. I have some memories of this car, especially of breaking up in the least expected moments and of gear leaver made of wood because the original one broke in half
In the 1990 our family abandoned the socialistic car market by buying The Western Capitalistic Car, Hyundai Pony

The 1.5 dCi is good, but it lacks some power, it's not really a race car. The 1.6 HDi of Peugeot/Citroën is much faster.

Funny hatchback. I sometimes think those straight and boxy lines are even better than all that rounded stuff from now.

This Polonez is really good, especially comparing to all those cars like Trabant, Wartburg, Maluch or this Hungarian Velorex. It's really shame they didn't managed to install more Fiat engines there, 2.0 131 BHP... oh yes

I really like Polonez MR 87 like on second picture

actually, this model was popular and it was more popular in sedan version.
it was real invasion of eastern cars in 1990es here. i will never forget when my father came to pick me in school with our Mitsubishi in the sea of Yugos. also, this mazda 323 and 323f were very popular.

Hyundai was reall cool to own because very few people heard of it before

Velorex is Czechslovakian. And it is not really a car

My family always had Ladas back then. I remember when we had a Lada 1200, and sold it when I was 5 . My mother drove a Polski Fiat 126p (Maluch) till 1994. I remember going to Graz, Austria with the Polski Fiat in 1991, when the Lada was already sold, and we had no bigger car. We were overtaken even by trucks

Our first Western car was an Opel Vectra 1.8i till 2002, and the Maluch was replaced by a Lancia Y10 (stolen 2 years later) then a Renault 5. Now we have a Renault Laguna II 1.8 Grandtour, my mother doesn't drive any more because of her eyes, and I drive a VW Golf II 1.3 made in 1991
