Half a Century Flags 101

Anniversaries of the production of cult cars are always interesting to fans, but also to their creators. Two anniversaries are the most important: half a century and a whole century.

Let’s start with the dark side of the Moon: “Alien – sweeter” came to the fore in the automotive world of Yugoslavia in the mid-eighties, to completely prevail after the collapse of the SFRY. Used cars from plots in Germany and Austria are becoming prestigious and wholesale imports are starting. Drivers then increasingly give up on Wartburg, Škoda, Fić, Pezejac, Moskvich, and even Zastava. The attitude “Better a 15-year-old German than a new Flag” starts.

The difficult situation in the country, even on the production line of Zastava itself, discouraged loyal customers. But in spite of everything, Stojadin kept the attention of his customers, without any advertising for over 20 years. It ended its career on November 21, 2008, as the second cheapest new car in the world. And it was a real sensation at the Belgrade Motor Show in 2008. And you read a lot about the epic adventures of Zastava 101: Rally all over Europe, Africa, Ararat, the Himalayas, the Tour d’Europe and many others.
