ugly cars that gross you the worst!

Everybody will have a different one. Popularity wise.....we can go down the typical lists:
Pacers
Azteks (Pontiac)
Edsels?
Gremlins
Datsun F10

And I mean pretty much stock; not like a gothic car, or that look.

This should be fun!!!

For me, its this '49 Plymouth. Sure its a famous drag car w a 10 year newer hemi in it, but the basic body look of any Mopar close to this time period just makes me want to lose my last previous meal.

This is mine....what's yours.......

Those gross header pipes sticking out every which way....yuck!!!!!

Scion's box cars. You know the ones I mean. Every time I see one of those on the road I wonder how someone could drive that!

Hummer H2 and H3, especially H3. No visibility, no practicality, no off-road ability. And UGLY!

Something I always hate to see are trucks (especially classic trucks) that have gaudy low profile wheels/tires and lower them down to the ground. Thats not a truck. Why did you buy a truck when you really want a car/elcamino/ranchero?

Old Dodge trucks. I understand the appeal of Cummins, but can't stand the look.


Nissan Juke. It's like a mini-me Aztek, minus all the practicality.


Mazda LOL cars.

True on the Juke, my wife finds them cute ... I can't even look at them without getting pissed at the designers (whoever they are!)

Ugly cars ?
Toyota Prius - any year , late model Geo Metro , Honda CIvics - ( especially the '93 hunchback " egg cars " ) , first and second generation Insights, Ford " escorts " and Focus , etc etc . *




* no, not really, but I think that single sentence encompasses most cars here eh

i agree with every vehicle post except the dodge truck I love the look of the boxy ford, Chevy, dodge trucks , but not for mileage for offroad/pulling usage.

Lets not forget the 1998 ford escort 4 (i hope Cd means the 4doors as well i like the 2 door looks
