    There have been through the years some butt-ugly cars. Some it's just a matter of colour - some of you are probably too young to remember when avocado was a popular colour, and I've made my feelings known in another thread about the proliferation of pewter-type coloured cars, but some car models are just plain ugly no matter what colour you throw on them. The AMC Pacer was one that I never liked the look of, the VW Thing another. What kind of cars do you find ugly? Some modern models for me would be the Pontiac Aztec, Ford Focus and some Toyota thing I saw the other day with the pushed-in nose. (might have been the new corolla)

    Most of the cars I find ugly are primarily AMC products. Yes, Pacers are definitely up there on the list, but we used to call them terrariums(sp?). And yes, I must agree that the new Pontiac Aztec is um....unique [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]smilies/wink.gif[/img] .

    However, my least favorite of all time has to be the AMC Matador. I can't remember what year, but the one with the BUGEYE round headlights. Yuck! The pits!

    The pride of post WWII East German manufacturing... The TRABI. It's a plastic car. And when I say plastic, I don't mean technologically advanced plasitc, I'm talking about about tupperware plastic. The most common color was an awful powder blue. These things were light, very dirty, and could double as storage containers to keep produce fresh for months!

    The Aztec reminds me of a pop trailor.

    I couldn't remember if Reneault's Le Car was ugly or not, but I do remember that the darn things were used as Police cars by the town of Ogunquit, Maine - boy did we use to giggle at those things!

    How about the Taurus from a couple years back? Proof no sharp edges does not a good design make.

    I learned how to drive in my neighbors pinto. heh heh. he would leave and go into town, and I'd take his piece of shit car out for a spin when I was 11-12 years old.

    Brady Mobiles were putrid. Ford's country Squire wagon was the king of nappy.

    The Gremlin was the worst.
