Not only that, the Beetle has been ruined as well :curse:
Add to the list of cars that have been ruined the Fiat 500.!  >:(  We thought that it was a nice tribute to the original one, that is until we found out that it had got a 900cc engine in it.!!  :curse:

In Serbia most common cars were from Zastava(Yugo,Stojadin,Fića) and were driven massively.Nowdays many people are driving VW Golf,Passat,Polo,Caddy...Fiat Punto is common car for beginners among Opel Corsa.

Yes.Yugo is a hatchback.Most likely if your mate lives in UK he had Yugo 45A which was made only for export.A was intended to be sold in US(A stands for Amerika),but something happened and they made Yugo GV(GVL,GVX) and exported to the US.

I miss small cars like that now, everything is SO big here in the UK now, the cars are getting like the US ones!!, unfortunately we don’t have the roads as big as America to accommodate them!

Here here!, it’s not the styling of the new Mini, or Fiats 500, it’s the size I don’t like!, the perfect new Mini for me would be how it looks now, but in the SAME SCALE as the original one!

I don't like the styling of the new fake mini at all, it's ugly. And some of them are bigger than a Maxi, FFS  ???

Bring back the classic Mini; Alec Issigonis is probably rolling in his grave at the sight of these awful things  :curse:

Mummy's first car was a white Mini, and at that time daddy had a Maxi in the same Arctic White.  :love:

We also had a white Mini back in the early 80s, I remember the registration, EFM 961L to this day!
I don’t know what the obsession is with bigger cars today?, we considered the Mini a family car back then, 4 of us, mum, dad, me and my sister, could easily go on holiday in one including the luggage!

If he was still alive I think poor Alec Issigonis would projectile vomit at the sight of the new 'Mini' Countryman! It's a clossal abomination.  :curse: :sick:

So far I've owned only two cars.... my Pontiac G6, and my former Pontiac Grand Prix, GT model. (I've got a video of that car if ya'll
want to check that out. Stupid video though, from 2012.) Both rather... boring cars... although the Pontiac Grand Prix was more exciting than
the G6. But... rod knock. That's how that car ended. That Grand Prix was my first car.
