MY PARENTS HAD A 76 FORD LTD, IT WAS FADED CRAYOLA BLUE, THE INTERIOR REMINDED ME OF MY GRANDMAS COUCH, THE 351 ENGINE JUST WHEEZED, AND IF JUST KIND OF WALLOWED AROUND CORNERS, LIKE IT WAS GOING TO ROLL ANY TIME. THE STYLING WAS SO UNIQUE, JUST LIKE A BIG SHOE BOX. I PREFERRED MY PLYMOUTH VALIANT OVER IT BY FAR.

The Aztec is truly strange. It's a great design for usefulness though as long as you don't have to look at it. The '47 Stude gathered the same reaction then as did the '52. The '53/58 2dr sedans were truly horrible. Then the Willys Dragon................Mid-Fifties Hudsons, 58 Ford. It was such a shock after the beauties in '57. '61 and '62 Mopars? Good Grief. DeSoto Airstream's??? Is there an inherent gene in designers that every so often the entire clan goes bonkers for a bit? Is there some type of inoculation breed a resistance to this insanity? Are we all so darn bored this is becoming important?

Sorry to gore anyone's ox, but I still wake up in a cold sweat thinking of those wipers while trying to merge onto the Southfield Freeway in Detroit during a rush hour thunderstorm.

Actually, the later American -- 63-65? old brain is failing me -- was kinda cute. The earlier, Nashoid one was the one I meant.

I'm definetely with you "kevin45" that valiant is truely the ugliest car I've seen,, I mean dodge/chrysler built some terrible looking cars but that one is the worst. Last year here at our local car show a guy came from the US with a car just like that but pro-streeted, I thought pro-street anything was cool (even a pro-street Pinto, or Chevette are cool) but not that car.

but ugly cars

Damn near anything in a 4 door sedan. 55 - 69 chevy and fords. Great cars in converts and 2 doors, but the lines are ruined in a 4 door. IMHO. Maybe it's just that 4 doors said "my parents car" , and they just weren't cool.

I also have a pic of one with a red/white/blue paintjob, lots of patina runnin at the drags. Too bad the pic is only a concept. Much better than the fwd crap they offer thesedays.

Some later thoughts

Probably this thread is dead, but I can't resist -- I've seen these cars when they were new.

First, I liked my Pacer -- it was nearly a junker, but fun. I also liked my Horizon(same as Omni). And as an early teen, I liked the first year valiants.

Hated -- 57 chev always have, always will - liked 56, 58, and 59
- most 56-59 Dodge/Plymouths
- most 61-64 Dodge/Plymouths
Early Toyotas --unbelievably ugly
Most any Citroen
Aztec and the Chev truck with the plastic crap
Almost every recent Japanese car -- headlights are squinty
-- unfortunately, the style is catching on

Also rans - Ford Crown Vics and Chev Impalas -- these were distinctive
cars -- the later versions are just a nameplate on a generic

Best nostalgias -- Mustangs and GTs --FoMoCo finally got something tigh
