Now this is one very beautiful simple car, the Zastava 101 found in Belgrade, Serbia.
It has a striking glow in the dark yellow colour, I love it!
This car was manufactured between 1971 and 2008 and was known by the nickname “Stojadin”. Later on (and we will get to these models/editions) it was also known as the Zastava Scala and Yugo Scala, and was actually based on the Zastava 128. By 2007, and known as the Scala 55, this vehicle was considered the second most affordable car in the world!
Lets take a look at this wonderful Zastava (YUGO) 101! If you ask me, I think the early 80s Volkswagen Jetta took notes on this earlier car design.
I dig the front end to this car, very similar to a BMW with that forward slant. And, I like that opposite backward slanted trunk in the rear.
Interesting how back in the day they only bothered with 1 side view mirror. Tough to say what year this car is but based on the colour, the chrome bumper, and just 1 side view mirror, I guess this is a 1970s model.
Here is a good look from the front, and side angle.
That red strip down the side is a cool alternative to chrome. That gas tank door is practically on the rear bumper!
Looks like someone tried to jimmy that trunk open.
I have to say I think we need more small cars like this one. For so many reasons, smaller cars are better.
That rust on the bumper tells me this one has been kicking around for a while too. But that paint job is holding strong!
Here is a look from the other side of the Zastava 101!
If you ask me this is a fantastic design. As soon as I first saw this car I liked it, well done YUGO!
