It fits right in with my other small car collection


The exhaust system.

The carburettor needed to be cleaned and resealed.

General Comments:

This is a fun car to own and take out around town. People do not know what it is.

It's so small, you can park it anywhere.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Ironically, the GVX, which was designed to be the sporty version of the Yugo GV, only shaved about a half-a-second off the 0-60 time, from 14 secs to a lame 13.56secs.
