You obviously have some deep psychological issues my friend.... Or you walk with a stick & a guide dog.... If you're serious that Ferraris can EVER be on a list like this...

those flamming ferraris give me an idea for a build. just because a few of them caught fire does not mean they are junk. 116 octain gas tends to burn if there is a spark. no telling how many of them were insurance fires

My vote goes to the early 80s GM E body cars(Riviera,Toronado).They leaked EVERYTHING! A story-Back in the early 80s I was still working at the Buick dealership where I started my parts career.I recall back then that one entire side of the shop was usually filled with Rivieras partly disassembled to fix fluid leaks(oil from the rear main seal and oil pan gasket,coolant from the head gaskets on the 4.1 v-6 engine,and trans fluid from the drive chain cover and transmission pan.This wasn't taking into account the cars in for air and moisture leaks at the door and window weatherstrips).During that era one of the things that was pushed was for new car sales prospects to be given a tour of the dealership to show off the facilities.The new car sales manager happened by the parts desk so I asked him how the sales staff dealt with a prospective Riviera buyer who might see the wonderful shop display of their desired car in various states of disassembly.He just said that he hoped the prospects didn't notice anything as they were quickly escorted on their tour.

no they were from ferrari being full of themselves thinking that using glue to mount parts near exhaust manifolds wouldnt catch fire, they recalled the 458 over this only to do it again

My 93 Grand Am had a bad water temp sender, blew the head gasket and cracked the head at 36,000 miles.
Not the first time to happen to a GM product of mine. I was the second owner so no warranty.

How about the Amphicar?
Complete and utter rubbish on the road as well as in the water. Flying off a cliff is the only thing it's really good for.
