Watch Jeremy Clarkson Blow Up A Yugo With A Tank

Welcome to Sunday Matinee, where we highlight classic car reviews or other longer videos I find on YouTube. Kick back and enjoy this blast from the past.

Yesterday we watched a Yugo ad, and what spewed forth from the commentariat was nought but hatred and derision, all of it actually quite elegant:

Did you know the Yugo was Holy Crap levels of crap? Even for the day.

And that's saying a lot.

When I was a kid, a co-worker bought a new one, and didn't make it home before part of the exhaust fell off. Every day something came loose or fell off that car.

I test drove a Yugo fresh off the delivery truck back in the day..

It was a brand new car and it drove like something that had never been serviced and was approaching a quarter of a million miles in usage. Absolutely the worst car I've ever driven and I've owned some real beaters.


Beautiful, indeed. So let's blow one up, Jeremy Clarkson-style. And, of course, that means using a tank. In this case, a since-retired Cheiftain. But I think it still does the trick.
