    Yea!!! A Yugo post. These are getting fewer and further between. I'm not being sarcastic. It's about time we get an update on it. I actually hope y'all keep it around a lot longer than you should. In fact, I'd rather y'all sell the Corvette and put the Yugo in the display area of the front office.

    With the water damage already on the seats, you could have left it parked in the rain with the windows down and not done much more damage, it might have helped clean the inside of the car.

    Also, when are we going to get post from someone who actually has to drive it as a penalty for a few days?

    Like ever who drove the pickup with a foot of snow on it...

    This thing is more watertight than my Wrangler Rubicon hard top...

    Excellent. This car seems to be sorted out, at least for a while. It won't make the list of Edmunds' worst long-term testers, to be sure.

    That rear quarter shot is fetching. Kind of like an ugly dog that you want to hug. Maybe you can call the Yugo "Tank".

    "...or attacked by a sprinkler gone rouge."

    I had no idea that red sprinklers posed such a hazard!

    Any updates on the Yugo or is it going to disappear without notice like the '97 Miata? What happened to the Miata anyway?

    Just curious why the ol' Yugo is now listed under "Past Long-Term Road Tests?" Is it gone and forgotten?

    It was put up for sale a couple of weeks ago -- haven't heard if it sold or not.
