He bought 39 rusty Yugos and asked his students to make objects of functional art from them. What was remnants of a failed automotive venture became a very popular exhibit drawing crowds to auto shows across the country. Twelve of these recycled Yugos were displayed at the ’97 auto show hosted by the St. Louis auto dealers association.” [via] – Link.
