some really ugly cars in this link

That MG makes me want to set my eyes on fire with a mix of napalm and habanero pepper juice and put them out with a bleach soaked ice pick.

I encountered the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile the other evening and the delightful young persons that drive it.

Those girls were the drivers? Not exactly what I'd expect to see climbing out of the Weinermobile. No gender pun intended.

Oh, I agree! I had a brief internal debate concerning which thread I should post those pics in. Every time I see a Wienermobile it makes the day special.

But since it was the banana buggy that prompted my post, here it is.

That was the first episode a bunch of people in my family saw... Needless to say they all love Top Gear now. That definitely belongs in this thread.

It would be nice if posters include the name of the car along with the picture.

AMC Ambassador Wagon.

What it lacked in looks, it made up for in power and bench seat room. I made out more in that thing than a dark corner of a high school dance.

And this little beauty

A Renault Encore. It was my first car, a pass me down since the trade in wasn't even worth driving to the lot for. You might recall the commercial of the car "stretching" past gas pumps. The 1.3 liter engine was so low on power that the back of the car would honk at the front going down a hill. I couldn't get rid of it fast enough.

I want this car in both the Beautiful Cars and the Not-so-beautiful Cars threads... the AMC Eagle.



(my dad had one in the mid-80's and offroaded it regularly, sometimes with kids in the back. )

They'd love it in Little Rock. I'm not sure if the sleeping buddha in the rear window would go well though.

Here's the latest trend for customizing cars in Oklahoma, a 2003 Mustang, modified by Mother Nature. Yeah, it runs.
