Hey Mark. What the heck do you like ?  : )


Majority of GMs, a lot of Italian stuff, some old Datsuns, always thought the last gen rx7 was pretty spiffy...

And add any, and all 4 doors to my ugly list.

If this was top trumps, then the Ssangyong Rodius, would be the winning card......

Gotta agree there. Cadillacs just don't look very "Cadillac-y" anymore. That boxy, sharp-edged look is fine for a refrigerator, though.  :lol:

 

Cadillacs was a classy car at one time but now  Malibu with different headlights.

My ten ugliest, and please note that I actually like a couple of these in spite of (or perhaps because of) their aesthetically-challenged nature.

 

 

1. 1961 Fullsize Plymouths- I'm not sure if it was meant to look like the '60 model after it had hit a pole dead-center, or some kind of mutant space bug, but that front end is unlike anything else ever designed. Probably a good thing. Still love the car, though.

 

2. Buick Rendezvous. This is the sister of the much maligned Pontiac Aztek, but for me the Buick is uglier. Especially from the back- it kind of looks like a LeSabre in poorly-fitting booty shorts from that side.

 

3. '68 Fullsize Fords- these actually looked good, except for the front end. Why Ford went with such a frumpy looking grille design after the swoopy '67's is a mystery to me.

 

4. At the risk of being overly general, every Cadillac except for the first-generation El Dorados. Older models were overwrought and garish, and the new ones are trying way to hard to look like M-Bs.

 

5. '73-77 Chevy Chevelle/Malibu/El Camino- particularly the later 'four eye' models. I don't think I need to elaborate. The Oldsmobiles of this era are way easier to stomach.

 

6. '99-'05 Pontiac Grand Am- These always remind me of a cross between a Barbie toy and a Tim Burton-era Batmobile.

 

7. '56-57 Hudson (aka "Hash"). Just do a Google image search and you'll see what I mean. Take the Step Down, and then take about ten steps back.

 

8. '50-51 Studebaker Bullet Nose. Yeah, it's ugly, but I still want one.

 

9. '91-'94 Chevy Caprice. Man the harpoons! The Impala SS, on the other hand, looked way better, but even when the Caprice adopted the taller rear wheel openings from the Imp it seemed to do little to improve the looks.

 

10. Olds Toronado, post-1967. The '66 and '67 Toros were beautiful cars- why did Oldsmobile decide to beat the car with a progressively larger ugly stick with each passing model year?

I've never liked Corvettes. I never saw a purpose for them. Manhood extensions for the younger guys, the last hurrah for old guys.  I've had friends into them and have access to enough of them over the years.  Just not my cup o' tea.

 

But I saw pictures of the '14 in a magazine the other day and thought it was the best looking Corvette in years.

 

Not a huge fan myself but i do enjoy the styling of the cars from 63 -72 era. I think if you buy a car because of it`s brand or said reputation you can call any car a manhood extension. I buy cars (if i can afford it) i really love or have been wanting to own,not because some fancy commercial or hip celeb own one,or lots of people think it`s awsome.

 

I think it got a lot to do with color and wheels as well if a car look good or not.

American motors.
Chrysler.
Yes. All of them. Every single car, made by every single manufacturer either one of those corporations ever had even remotely anything to do with.

I hate them, and would like to crush every one of them.

 

Mark, the last time something cool wore a bow tie his name was Abraham Lincoln.

I would say that the FIRST American sports car is a tie between a Mercer and a Stutz. then again, the '53 Corvette was probably the best Chevrolet could manage with a twenty year old engine design, coupled to a power-robbing automatic transmission.

And a 2-speed at that. And fake knock-offs.

Some of you obviously have posted some very nice cars in this thread. It was supposed to be about Ugly Cars. :lol:

 

I'll play. Not in correct order.

 

-Nissan Juke. That thing is just so ugly, grille and lights are maybe the worst I have ever seen!

 

2011-Nissan-Juke.jpg

 

This year Nissan Skyline. The Front end just looks horrible, and when guys build these "Tuning Versions" of these, they can make these cars even more ugly.

 

pic-2469581069494270987.jpeg

 

This Mitsubishi Lancer. Especially the grille, but also the rear end are horrible. I don't like the roof line either on this one.

Mitsubishi_Lancer_EVO_X.jpg

 

Skoda Roomster. This thing is just Freakin' Ugly! The front and rear end look like they're from different cars. Look at the side windows.

skoda_roomster_19tdi.jpg

 

Lancia Delta. This is ugly from all over.

Well there are 5. I'm not going to post more now, my eyes hurt already :D !

...just kidding...if some comments started with "All cars from xyz are ugly"...*lol*. For example Chrysler: all Mopars ugly? Dodge Challenger and Charger, Plymouth Roadrunner, Chrysler Lettercars?

All Honda? Cars, that are hightech and steps forward if i look to the Germans in the 80's / 90's? NSX first all aluminium built body and what a styling... S800, S600, S2000 real "rpm-engines"... all sportscars of them are a lot of fun to drive. My first Prelude (86) i always own today and i never will sell it. Never.

 

A L L  ugly? Can't believe it... do not feel personally attacked - just my thoughts, when i read it.

 

Ugly are definitely my three "favorites:

 

1st - winner:

If this was top trumps, then the Ssangyong Rodius, would be the winning card......

 

wymiary-ssangyong-rodius-minivan.jpg

...and Actyon

 

2nd: those Nissan Juke-Thing. Terrible.

nissan-juke-nis_juk_10_1.jpg

 

3rd: the "i whised i am a offroad car but also i wish i have a fastback-for-door-body and wide, flat tires"- BMW series 5 GT

 

Who need those cars?

I'm aware that 64/65 Mustangs were partially marketed towards women - and it worked, 50% of buyers in these years were women - (making them equally men's cars, right?).  But things developed rapidly and that wasn't a typical women's car in Bullit.

 

And anyway, Mustangs simply aren't ugly, regardless of the owner's gender.
