Question Of The Day: The Butt-Ugliest Car Of All Times?
I was watching TV the other day and on came “National Lampoon’s Vacation”. I absolutely LOVE this film. The thought of driving 2408 miles across the United States to visit “Wally World” is something I’d love to do (OK, maybe not “Wally World”, but you get the idea). If I drove 2408 miles across the UK, I’ll end up driving my car off a cliff as we’re such a small country. However, what DOESN’T appeal to me is driving 2408 miles across the United States in a “Wagon Queen Family Truckster” (which, according to IMDB trivia was actually a modified Ford LTD Country Squire station wagon). As the picture will show you, it’s a bit of a monster. But it got me thinking…
Beauty, they say, is in the eye of the beholder. But sometimes something is so hideous, even the most liberal person has to say “You’re one ugly mother f*cker!” (preferably in an Austrian accent). So here’s my question for the B&B. What car, currently on the market, is the most ugliest? Which automobile makes the “Predator” look like Angelina Jolie? Now, I’m not looking for bland. Bland is livable with. I mean so hideous, it scares your children. So, have a think and let me know. It’s a Sunday and I’m really bored! And maybe, that’s a prelude for TTAC’s 10 Worst Cars of 2010? In 2009, everything was bad. (Nominations with a link to a picture will receive honourable m,ention on Sunday.)

I can't believe no one mentioned the Volkswagen Thing. Now THAT was ugly. Ugly enough to curdle milk.
Pretty much anything made in the US from 1930 till 200x. White trash turds with few exceptions, and that is being generous. It's 1963, 'Benz or Caddi-lack? It's 1969, what's sexy and fast, a Muira or a 'Vette? It's 1973. You want a Caddy Bro-Ham De Vomit or a 'Benz? It's the early 80s. You want a TR8, or a 'Vette? It's the mid-eighties. You want a 928 Turbo, a GTV6 TT, or a POS 'Vette?
I would say Datsun B210 hardtop, from every possible angle. I mean, who was the head of design at Datsun in those days? The grille alone looked like an acid nightmare.
