Zastava 1100

Thursday 01 April 2010
The Zastava or Yugo Skala is a generic name for a family of cars built by Serbian manufacturer Zastava Automobili. Based on a Fiat 128 sedan platform, it was introduced in 1971 and sold as Zastava (Yugo) 128 with a restyled rear panel. Later it became available as a 3 or 5-door liftback, a style that had not been issued in Italy, under the name Zastava 101. Zastava 101 is widely known by its nickname "Stojadin" (a male name, from the similarity with Serbian for 101, "sto jedan", whilst "sto jada" also means "a hundred miseries" which indirectly points out the car's performance, rated by the public). The Zastava Skala is today available in a single trim level: the 55-horsepower, 1.1-liter, 5-door Skala 55. As of 2008, a new Skala costs just under 4,000 euros, undercutting the Zastava Koral (an ameliorated Yugo). While Zastava has stopped selling the 128 upon which this car is based, the Skala 55 soldiers on, its fifth door making it impressively functional at this price level. Drop the rear seat and cargo space increases from 325 to 1,010 liters.

Sorry mate. I have seen one in the Internet but not sure if it was Zastava or Fiat. Check RIO models. Their Fiat should be more or less like 101.

The car my dad had... slightly older model but the same exact color!

You have a really nice collection. I am mostly into 1:64 and have a website called Kids-Nook where I do a lot of diecast reviews but from a parent's perspective... not a collector's.

your Stojadin, well... in my family we called it the Red Beast :D really put a smile on my face. Thank you!
