"The worst car you could own," advises a sage gearhead in West Los Angeles, about the 1988 Yugo. For those too young to remember, or too smart to have ever purchased one, the Yugo is frequently a consensus pick for Worst Car Ever. And our gearhead should know why...

This wretched wrench is trying to sell his one-owner Yugo for the princely sum of $2,200. "Have a piece of.........history," he writes in Craigslist. And while our intrepid poster is the original owner, and claims it has a clear title with no history of accidents, don't expect him to blow smoke at potential buyers.

He — and it must be a he to have suffered such a lack of aesthetic sensibility — claims to know where his car came from. It was "designed by a retarded engineer and assembled by a group of drunk workers." But don't fret, it must have many happy days left in it: only 38,000 original miles. Know anyone with a couple grand laying around in need of a project car?
