Okay we've done best movie cars, dashboards, interiors, etc. Now, from the WTF were they thinking department, it's time to name the butt-ugliest cars in automotive history. Limit your nominations to two cars, or vote for any nominated. If you're going to post pics, please limit them to 640 by 480 or thereabouts.

Here's mine...

The BMW Isetta from 1957!

and the 1961 Plymouth Fury!

That is an '03+ SE, as you can see there are *NO* plastic mouldings. IMO it looks worse. Without the mouldings, it looks like the Alero. So its hard to say they will look better without the plastic cladding... when there is none :).


Just wait til Rick sees that....


"When the shit hits the fan, I'll be sitting on the can!"

No, see, with people like this you are dealing with, you need to really lower the maturity level. This car was posted because of the prevoius threads. So I am not even going to give him the satisfacation of making a reply. It's like a little kid, if you ignor them, you hope they'll stop... most the times they don't though and will just keep carrying on.

What is with strange references too.... "testerosa lines"? They are called ribs. "fly eyes" sorry, that is the Pontiac honecomb pattern, same thing on the grille. I never heard of either of those references before.

Sorry though, if you don't like the looks of the 4th gen Trans Am.... well, theres a Civic waiting for ya :).

03-08-06, 07:34 PM
Sorry, my mistake, although compared to a one I just saw on google with the side moudlings I definately prefer it, that front bumper still echoes the ones with them on, did they change it?

If they changed that I would probably like it more, definately an improvment over the other one.

front bumper is not changed. The SE bumper has the lower grille looking thing, the GT bumper is nice with the double big openings.

Pontiac has been responsible for some of the most god-awful designs to ever be put into production.

For a couple years there must have been a plastics company pumping out that cheap grey molding at bargain basement pricing. Everything was getting it.

The Aztek, the Avalanche, and not to be outdone, even Honda.
Although they took it to new heights by not just offering it as a molding, but as a complete fender set on the Element:

My vote for loser was the AMC Pacer. In addition to ugly, it had a number of other problems:

- Car was intended to have a Wankel rotary engine. The engine wasn't ready so AMC crammed a straight 6 in. I believe you had to pull the engine to change the rear spark plug or two.

- The car was heavy with lots of glass, steel, and heavier engine. Plus, the engine had less power than planned.

- The large amount of glass overwhelmed the A/C and the passengers roasted in the summer.

- The right door was longer than the left to make it easier to enter the back seat. However, the hinges weren't made stronger. The heavy door sagged - badly.

Then they brought them to the UK, so the big, designed to help passengers safely step on to the pavement, door ended up on the same side as the steering wheel, the WRONG side...... so you swing your five foot long door into oncoming traffic

Actually, when the lower cladding is painted body color (same thing for the Avalanche) it looks good. Actually, I never minded the styling of them... and compared to the ugly junk made today... Element, Scion xB and stuff... the Aztek isn't all hat bad.... if you get past the odd outside looks, its actually really roomy and nicely laid out inside, and the rear tent option was sweet.

The Edsel was so.....out there, that there is a huge following today. Also, outside of the quirky looks, it was a very advanced car.

Packard made good cars, they went under for a handful of reasons... samething with Hudson....

It isn't so much of the tight spots, it was just getting out of your car at the side of a busy road would be lethal, it's bad enough with Grandad's Rover 100, for a small car that has big doors too.

Our old Rover 214i was a three door, so its doors were big, that wasnt much fun, I couldnt imagein swinging a Coupe door or a Pacer door into traffic, especially the longer door on a pacer.

My dad bought an XM new in early '91 3.0 V6 the same year he got his XJ12, he wanted the XM to tow our mobile home with, so he got the Jag for normal daily use and the XM for towing once in a while, it was a nice car, but everything broke in about 1996, at which point he gave it to his wife and went back to buying GM, keeping the Jaguar until they divorced in 2001.

In 1997 she sold it, after the hydraulics totally failed leaving her stranded with no rear suspension, no brakes, no steering and no transmittion, total failure.

After that he vowed never to buy another French car.

I remember one clever feature was a window between the rear seat and the tailgate, so it didnt get cold inside when the back was open.

I'm with you on this one Mccombie, I always had a soft spot for these Citroens. My dads friend in Greece had one and we would always go out with his family when we visited. I was young but remember the ride to be real smooth.

I~LUV~Caddys8792
03-11-06, 09:38 AM
Yeah I always thought those Citroens were really smooth riding due to that hydraulic suspension of theirs, but when that went out (which it did quite frequently) it was extremely expensive. You could say that those cars were too ahead of their time, the technology available at the time wasn't enough.

Yeah, read above, this applies to all big Citroens, like, the XM we had for example, also, the brake/suspension/steering lines on the DS ran on the OUTSIDE of the frame rust rust rust. die die die.

If the Edsel could be described as "an Oldsmobile sucking a lemon," I'd say the Subaru B9 looks like a Toyota RAV4 sucking a tangerine.

What is with strange references too.... "testerosa lines"? They are called ribs. "fly eyes" sorry, that is the Pontiac honecomb pattern, same thing on the grille. I never heard of either of those references before.

So far I don't see anyone really getting in the big leagues of "Butt Ugly." Really guys the aforementioned cars are really just in the "amateur" leagues of the "Uglies." Let's really get serious and get on to the "professional" league of ugly car design. Like the Jaguar/Daimler DS420 Limousine now that's ugly, or any number of coachbuilt limited edition Rolls-Royces built in the 1950's and '60's (the "Chinese eye" Park Ward coupes and dropheads come to mind). American design certainly captures some kudos in placing the Dodge and Plymouth cars of the early 1960's well into the ranks of the "professionals." The Germans were heavy contenders in this exalted league with their big BMWs of the fifties, not to ignore the Wartburgs and Goliaths. Japan had the Toyopet Crown and many other worthy contenders. GM's oft sighted Pontiac Aztec certainly should win the "Burgenstock Butt Ugly Award" while a host of "stretch limousine"s could certainly qualify. And of course, the Rolls-Royce Corniche, with its' top up or with its' top down, has to win the "they could have afforded something beautiful but chose truly ""Butt Ugly" award!

In 1985 you could get a Buick Century T Type with a 3.8, a Olds Ciera with the 3.8. The Pontiac 6000 and Chev Celebrity both had the 2.8. The 3.8 had Fuel injection and the 2.8 had carb with fuel injection optional. I had the 6000 with the optional 2.8 FI engine. I couldn't afford the STE. Strangely enough the STE was the "performance" car but it still had the 2.8 FI engine with only a 3 speed auto. Mine had a 4 speed auto. The 2.8 with carbs also only had the 3 speed auto. By 1986 all were 4 speed auto and FI. Believe it or not when I was looking to buy in 1985 a salesman said that fuel injection would be gone in 1986 and carbs would be back. I almost ran out of the building. Either the guy had no clue or he was going to say what ever it took to get a stupid buyer to buy.
By 1988, the Olds came with a 3.3 litre version of the 3.8. My brother in law still has his 89 with the 3.3 but the trans is screwed.

That pretty well sums it! But then there was a lot of illegitimate bastard cars being born at that time. The 1980 Seville was one of them, apparently a 1979 Cadillac Eldorado spent a "lost weekend" with an Autin VandenPlas Princess and the 2nd generation Seville was the result! And ofcourse there was that famous tryst between a Vega and a Nissan 1965 Nissan Cedric that resulted in the Cadillac Cimmaron.

In 1985 you could get a Buick Century T Type with a 3.8, a Olds Ciera with the 3.8. The Pontiac 6000 and Chev Celebrity both had the 2.8. The 3.8 had Fuel injection and the 2.8 had carb with fuel injection optional. I had the 6000 with the optional 2.8 FI engine. I couldn't afford the STE. Strangely enough the STE was the "performance" car but it still had the 2.8 FI engine with only a 3 speed auto. Mine had a 4 speed auto. The 2.8 with carbs also only had the 3 speed auto. By 1986 all were 4 speed auto and FI. Believe it or not when I was looking to buy in 1985 a salesman said that fuel injection would be gone in 1986 and carbs would be back. I almost ran out of the building. Either the guy had no clue or he was going to say what ever it took to get a stupid buyer to buy.
By 1988, the Olds came with a 3.3 litre version of the 3.8. My brother in law still has his 89 with the 3.3 but the trans is screwed.
I'm a storehouse of 80's GM car info!

aztek has my vote for ugliest. Also looks like the same designer designed the original Avalanche with all the cladding.


To set the record straight as I document Internationals, and own a Century T-Type
3.8 was avalable in '84 on Centurys and Cieras, until 88, when it in '89 it got replaced by the 3300. It was the standard 3.8 in these cars not the 3800.
You could a get a 5 speed standard on a Celebrity or 6000, a member of the A-Body boards owns a 5 speed STE.
I believe all STEs 85+ were fuel injected while standard 6000s had the carb/fi choice along with the 3spd/4spd choice (STE being loaded).
Not all STEs were AWD, very limited for 1988 (iirc 200) than like 2200 for '89 and '90.

The 90 Lumina base is goofy front end. Chromed plastic grille with a modern (for the time) streamlined body. Made no sense. I had a 91 Lumina that got the new grill. At least the 90 grills were short lived. Not "butt" ugly, but front ugly....

And I HATED how the front drivers have such weak read springs so the nose ends up permanently in the air, so the car stretches the front springs over time and has the negative rake look.... FWD, it is just wrong....

It was a good car, with a Corvette style rear suspension (mono leaf sideways) and wasn't a bad car, but it was a heck of a lot better than the Celebrity!
