When this olelongrooffan still lived over in the Taj Mahal there Beachside in the Birthplace of Speed, I unwittingly parked next to an irrigation head that spewed sulphur water through it every other nite. As a result, the passenger side of my oldbeaterpickemup truck was constantly covered in a rust colored film from that from that water. Usually every week or so, I would run a pressure washer over it and cleanse of that film. However, the headlight on the passenger side became etched and started to retain water. As a result, during night time driving, it appeared as if that old truck had only one headlight working, although both were lit. Now, I can hear my fellow Hoons wondering what the hell this has to do with a Yugo?
Well my fellow Hoons, my new abode is located above a streetrodbuilding dudes’s shop and it is within shouting distance of my local U-Pull-It so this olelongrooffan thought I would head over there and pick up and elcheap sealed beam headlamp for my Comanche and while there see what could be seen. Well, this Yugo was one of those things.
Well, after acquiring, not one but, two sealed beam headlamps for my Indian, I wandered around the remainder of the MOPAR section of that wrecking yard then headed over to the import section to see what could be seen. Just when this olelongrooffan thought all I was going to see would be a bunch of 80’s and 90’s era Asian and Swedish products, this old Yugo was spotted. It made my day. And while not the weirdest thing you have seen this weekend, this olelongrooffan believes it is certainly weird enough to warrant inclusion here this UDManless weekend.
And I cannot fathom any reason this Pink Floyd wallet (empty of course) would be under the bonnet of this Yugoslavian sourced automobile.
YUGO FOR LIFE…that elicited almost as big of a chuckle as did Annti’s Fiat 500 post earlier today.
And that damn Ms. Martin beat this olelongrooffan to yet another vehicle as every badge on it was long gone to serve as Garage Art.
Proudly posted on the shock tower on the passenger’s side of this old beauty.
And it really doesn’t matter if you replace all of this stuff at 35,000 miles, this Yugo is still going to die at 72K.
