The ugliest car ever made???
One of the best things about this site is that we like and respect all make and models,they're all cool and we all have our favorites..But I think we can all agree that some cars are just ugly and nothing can be done to make them Not ugly. The ugliest car I ever drove would have to be a AMC Pacer it was totally embarrassing to drive I felt like a fish driving a fish bowl.I thought it would be interesting to get your opinions on the ugliest cars you guys ever drove? Mabee a vote would be cool....

You know what? soon as I saw the title of this thread, I just knew the Pacer was going to come up real early....LOL....I worked at the AMC plant in Canada, when they brought the 1st one to Canada in....Boy, what a shock.

But, if you look back now, I think that thing was way ahead of its time.....Look at some of the 90s Toyotas etc....big windows, same shape as a Pacer.........

To me, some of the ugliest cars had to be the early 60s Chrysler products.......But, then again, they are now considered cool.

I'v always liked the Pacer., don't know as I'd own 1 tho... I think in all respects,the Pontiac Aztec is the ugliest car ever built

AMC sure had a few. How about the Matador?

That Pontiac/Dawoo Le Mans 'thing' from mid-80's. Had a Korean engine in it and was a total p os styling AND mechanically. Looked like its bloomers were falling down in the back.

And the hideous Mercedes R Class. The LTD-nosed Ranchero.

only the later 1's. the earlier Mat's had a nicer looking front end. the later front end didn't 'fit' the car's style

Did you ever see a late '40s, early '50s Nash(sorry Brian Martin :( ) or '55 Packard Caribbean with about a square mile of chrome. Or how 'bout a '58 Buick or a '65 Chrysler which had enough steel in it for a navy warship.

the early 1980's caddy's. long regualar looking fromtend but the rear sheet metal looks like it was cut off at a 35 degree angle with a chop saw and welded back together. :confused:

All I know is all these cars that are being mentioned have a very loyal following, why because it is an OPINION on what is beautiful and what isn't.

I personally have always liked the funky looking cars because they are often found in real nice condition for a lot less money. There are less reproduction and aftermarket parts made for them so they are more of a challenge as well.

Yep, I doubt there will be a Chinese repop steel body anytime soon for my Rambler. :) Which means anytime you see a 59 Rambler, you KNOW it's a REAL Rambler. You don't have to go and knock on it, ask or walk by because it is the 300th 32 Ford you have seen that day.

Do I think it is "ugly", yes! It has nothing going for it, still amazes me that a 59 Chevy Impala and a 59 Ford Turnpike Cruiser were built the same year!

On the Aztec, we had one at work that was a bright limish green metallic. It's license plate was "SHREK" LOLOLOL

I don't know, even one of them can look pretty good with a little botox. :)
