Four Of The Ugliest Cars Ever!

On: Tue, May 11, 2010 at 7:46AM | By: Michael Jon Lazar


Main Image test 2

Over the past wonderful, invigorating, and very inspiring century of the history of automobiles, there have been some rides that have truly defined what cars are—or what they may be like some day—and then there have been the others. Perhaps a kind word to call these classic car flops would be a mistake. But in all reality, the best three words that can be used to adequately describe what these horrendous-looking cars truly represent would be as follows: The good, the bad, and the ugly (the super ugly, in all reality). Indeed, while there have been some major breakthroughs in the cars that we enjoy owning and driving these days—even if our auto bill negates that factor of joy in our minds when we get the statement in the mail each month—there have been some pretty sloppy mistakes (some of the ugliest cars ever to be made) that have been made along the way. To better enhance this perspective: these are, more than likely, four of the most hideous cars that have ever graced any showroom floor over the past hundred years of auto making.

The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly test 1-1

BMW hasn't been actively involved in the Deutsche Tourenwagen Masters series since the early Nineties. They're considering making a come-back. I'd love to see a Rahal M3 with its doors and fenders all chopped up, and crazy aero-thingees hanging off its muscular flanks.

Toyota has hit the proverbial "Crack-smokin', alternative-lifestyle hookin', eating-Ramen-at-every-meal" rock bottom this week; their credit rating has been reduced to that of a college student. Oh, how the mighty have fallen on their smug, insultingly boring car-producing faces.

Ken Block is planning another viral video sensation:; Gymkhana 3. The first two Gymkhanas were films involving Subarus with horribly ugly paint-jobs. This new edition will feature a Ford with a horribly ugly paint-job. *Yawn* . . . boy, do I have a hankerin' for a sugary can of nearly carbonated hyper-juice right about now . . .

2011 Toyota Sienna test 2

Mulally and Whitacre make nice-nice;

Whitacre does not extend nice-nice to schleps within his own company;

and the new Toyota Sienna debuts, renders Venza pointless . . . or was it the other way around?

Buick Regal test 2

Buick releases a car that has yet to be sullied by water-headed American designers, this new, desirable car might be too little too late, and Whitacre Jr. decides GM exec's deserve a pay raise, already . . . what is the deal with GM's crappy timing/insatible greed?!

Last weekend's Sports Car finales were the bee's knees.

"Just why was Buell so great?!"

And I break my "no GM reporting" oath, mostly to rub it in everyone's face.
