They left out the black Cadillac Fleetwood 75 limo on that list. I always imagine the mafia don to be riding around in the back.

The only really scary looking car is the '59 Buick, and it looks more pissed off than scary.

A Regal and the Imp SS scary looking? Pshaw... lol

My Gram had a 1960 Buick Lesabre 4 door hardtop... Buick changed the grille, and with bright teal and whitewalls it's not so scary looking :)

The scariest car is so scary it wasn't even mentioned in this thread...

They may not look super scary, or make you quiver with fear, but let me tell you they are a scary SOB. They were extremely poorly maintained (the Chevrolet dealer I worked at was one of the few Daewoo dealers in MN), extremely shitty to start off with and were all basically dead by 70,000 miles. The timing belt would blow, sending the pistons into the valves. No matter how much we'd tell a customer to replace their timing belt, they'd never do it, simply because they didn't feel the car was worth it.

And let me tell you, you haven't had to deal with a pissed off, demanding customer until you've had to deal with a Daewoo customer. They were the sort of people that would drive right into the middle of the service drive, get out of their crappy Korean built econobox and start screaming directly at who ever was around, no matter if it was a customer or an employee. They thought their concern was the biggest out there and everyone else could wait until they were properly addressed and satisfied. They were always very hard to deal with, irrational and unwilling to spend the money to have the car properly diagnosed and fixed, but they rather simply wanted us to fix it on the drive for free. And except for one couple who actually were easy to deal with and happy to spend money on their Nubira to keep it running and trouble free, they were almost ALL like that.

I can imagine the type, Chad, they thought they knew better than everyone else when they bought the Daewoo, then when proved wrong thought it was everyone else's fault. Meanwhile being too cheap too keep their car up properly. The type that had been walking or taking the bus since their Yugo dealer closed back in the 80's.

The original "Batmobile" was pretty scary. They used to park one, or "the", out in frony of one of the theatres on Wilshire Blvd, when they were having a "Batman Festival." the car was scary, but not as scary as Batman's tights!

Then of course there were some of the coachbuilt 'Park Ward" editions of the early sixties Roll-Royces that come to mind. Kind of the British equivalent of a Gucci Seville. The Brits were really capable of coming up with sacry-ugly designs whne they got it wrong! The "Dowager" Daimler Double Sixes of the late thirties could curdle cream with a slow pass!

Daewoo: When a used Cavalier is too classy.

Those Daewoos had a lot of standard or low-cost options like leather and automatic climate control. Even the switches felt somewhat nice.

Too bad the cars were otherwise disposable. The only dealership I've ever seen was in Spokane WA, in business for a total of 10 months. I bet they regretted picking Daewoo as their Korean franchise instead of Kia.

Everyone I talk to that owns, or drove one said the car is a POS.... except for an older family realitive that had one as a rental for an occasion and said "well, it is good on gas"

I sold a '99 Leganza to an acquaintance about a year and a half ago. Had 99k on it and needed paint but otherwise decent. I remember the A/C even worked (got the car at auction for $300). I also remember being surprised that it drove as good as it did and the power was decent as well. The car now has over 120k miles and is still on the road and going strong with minimal repairs. I think the biggest problem with these cars was the owners themselves. The owners probably stepped up into them because there was finally a new car that they could afford but they treated them like the $500 beaters they owned before. I also had a Daewoo built Suzuki Forenza wagon for a brief time and thought it was a decent car with many standard amentities like steering wheel controls for the stereo and power everything. This is all the experience I've had with Daewoo's. I'd take one over a used Cavalier. :cool2:
