'62 Dodge Polara 500. Probably an awesome car, but man, it looks like a mustang with a bunch of really bad bodywork. Check the roll bar and wheels, this beast is a dragster.

There used to be a guy around here named Polara. Was absolutely crazy about those things.

This has to be the ugliest Citroen 2CV ever.

If Rodney King would have been able to afford something better than his '88 Excel, he might have avoided a beating.
