The Yugo stopped being sold in the U.S. in 1992 after an eight-year run and was on Time Magazine's list of the 50 worst cars of all time.
Yet the modest compact from the former Yugoslavia reportedly still has a small following nationwide, primarily among buffs who like odd cars and among mechanics who don't mind keeping the vehicles in working order. There's even an online Yugo Club based out of Kenosha, Wisc., with 523 members.
We are looking for Yugo owners in the Charleston area, having heard anecdotally that there are at least a few out there. Anyone with a Yugo now or at some point in their lives can send a photo and brief description on the car, how it was located, the attraction to the brand, etc., to The Post and Courier, 134 Columbus St., Charleston SC 29403-4800 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. We may include the photos and information in a future story.
