The story was missing a prime opportunity to rip on the YUGO. He managed to mess up a otherwise comical piece of motoring history. I was Kind of surprised to not see the saga of the yugo in your article.Hi all,
Author here. Glad you all enjoyed this, hopefully it was educational. These forums were instrumental in kicking off some of the progress.
I spent months researching this and talking to people who worked at LMC or knew JZD personally. It's a wild story and sad to have heard how everything fizzled out in the end, but definitely an important period in time.
Alry,Well ya, but look at automobiles, snowmobiles, farm tractors and even lawn mowers. They've all got more complicated but easier to operate and more comfortable to work in. That's how all machines go over time. Good or bad.
