Sure, the Yugo has joined the Edsel as an automotive punchline, and its diminutive size implies it may imminently unleash a profusion of clowns. Despite all that, today's Nice Price or Crack Pipe Cabrio asks, who's laughing now?
Not so funny was yesterday's 1983 two-door Jetta, and in fact a surprising 62% of the votes were for seriously considering that car's nearly four grand sticker a Nice Price. And that was despite nobody getting the Sammy Hagar reference. That boxy VW and today's contender have a lot in common- they both hail from Yurrup, they each have a SOHC four cylinder engine and 5-speed gearbox, and both are based on an earlier vehicle. Where they diverge is in their reputations, as today's car takes the VW's rep for questionable durability and makes it the Two Girls, One Cup of automotive unreliability. Oh, and also, that Jetta's top was a lot harder to fold down than the one on this 1990 Yugo Cabrio.
