Strange things make me happy...

On my way to work this morning I saw something you don't often see these days.  At first I thought I was hallucinating, but sure enough I was staring a a mint condition YUGO:


Unfortunately, this was the best photo I could get.  It's hard to take pictures in stop and go traffic when you're driving a car with a manual transmission.  The photo doesn't do the car justice, the YUGO appeared to be in mint condition.  Considering that these cars looked ten yeas old within a week of driving them off the dealer's lot, this specimen was truly remarkable.  Maintaining a YUGO can't be easy (what with the abject lack of spares available), so the guy driving it must really love this car.  I must say, driving one of these in the greater Los Angeles Area is one bold fucking statement.  I have nothing but respect for the brave soul that pilots this YUGO.

I felt like I caught a glimpse of some long extinct animal when I saw this car.  Kind of like spotting a coelacanth on your morning commute or something.  Strangely enough, this sighting made me happy for the rest of the day.  Yes, I've got serious problems...
