1989 Yugo GVL: Road Trip Snacks to Match
July 23, 2015
Somehow the Operation Balkan Bullet team found a Bosnian market in Boise, near the home of our 1989 Yugo GVL's previous owner. Not only that, but the market's proprietor knew the Yugo owner to whom we'd soon fork over $950. It was a serendipitous collision of cosmic circumstance, one that could only mean that the Yugo was fated for our garage.
Facing a 900-mile return trip, the boys needed some road trip snacks. But no jerky, high-fructose corn syrup drinks and Fig Newtons here; this trip called for some of the same snacks possibly munched on by the people who built the car, like Lokum and Cockta.
Hit the jump to see Kurt go big, throwing down a Lokum like a jalapeno popper - if a jalapeno popper were a dry-breaded food-like thing that turns a mouth to cotton. Turns out it's meant to be dipped in coffee, like a biscotti. They dipped it alright, in a big bath of caffeine-free Cockta soft drink to follow.
I think that Lokum is still under the passenger seat.
