Anything from the now long gone "American motors". Amazed me how many ugly cars they sold year after year.

+1 on the Aztek, or as some people call it the @$$crack. It's "uckin' fugly". :barf:
Same for theNissan Murano, or as I call it, "Manuro" , because it's uglier than $#!+.
Nissan Juke? EEEEWWWWW! :barf:
Dodge Caliber? What caliber is that? .22 short? :barf:
New Dodge Charger? Looks like a 4-door Chevelle and a Mustang had a "carnal liaison".
Dodge Magnum.... NICE HEARSE!!
Scion xB, Nissan Cube, Kia Soul (other than those owned by ecomodders); Nice Toaster!
I agree with Cd - the new Mustangs are sharp looking cars. And if you use some mild hypermiling techniques, you can get some fairly decent fuel economy from them.

And then went outta' business before they could drop this beauty on us..



The all-wheel-drive and sleek SX4 was about 30 years ahead of every crossover on the road today..

But yeah.. the V8 Pacers were something else... eww...

I like the new Mustang, Camaro and the Challenger, all well done remakes of 70s classics

The Aztek though holy cow what a fail! id never seen one before and now i wish i didnt google it!

Most 90s midsized American cars make me wanna puke, the proportions are just all wrong

new subaru forester? not sure what model it is but ive seen a few around and they are terrible:


nissan micra, any of the new "luxury crossover SUV's" aka Porsche Cayenne, BMW X7, or Audi Q7... lets face it they are never gonna see a dirt road, you just look like a wanker with too much money taking your kids to school, especially when the woman driving can barely see over the steering wheel! il extend that to the non luxury versions too, like the Nissan Murano, and of course the Hummer, esp. H3, they only thing H1 and H2 had going for them was a big tough military feel, the H3 is none of these things

Ford KA... WTF WERE THEY THINKING? and it just gets worst when you step inside, the interior looks like it was designed by a telly tubby in a bubble factory... yuk!

That's the Subaru Tribeca (see Subaru Tribeca - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia), which I agree is the ugliest looking (modern) Subaru there is... I was really disappointed when that one came out since I'm a Subaru fan...

Seems like a lot of people are calling some of the cars ugly because their functionality (or lack thereof)... That's one thing that doesn't compute for me... seems like a car can be good looking without having any functional benefits while a car with excellent functional benefits can be quite ugly looking...

Gotcha ! . ( Was being sarcastic. )

BTW, I love the look of the first generation Insight, though the proportions do make the car look " fat " . The Mazda MX-3 is roughly the same size and shape, yet looks sleek .

Im an odd one I guess . I remember when the Aztec came out and I caught a glimpse of the thing on a car carrier parked in a parking lot. I went up to it and stared for several minute.
At the time this was an exciting vehicle to aero freaks like me. SUVs all looked like bricks and this thing gave hope that designs would become more aerodynamic.

I wouldn't own one, but I don't think its any uglier than some vehicles today.

That would be the Plymouth Belvedere. The Valiants all had slant 6s, 170 or 225 CU. There was an aluminun block 225 with a 4 barrel that was good for 225 HP with a 4 speed transmission.

Aw, heck, if we're going to post pictures of fuglymobiles from the 1960s, how about from the 1950s?

I present to you... The Ford Edsel! The mobile toilet seat!
