    OMG! Looks like a 10-year-old Hyundai Santa Fe! In fact, even WORSE than the Santa Fe!

    FWIW: Marketing insight from my 'B'-school days: Back in the late-1990s Chrysler spend ZERO dollars advertising the Cherokee 'Sport' (the basic model). It appeared in general Cherokee ads, but all the ad money was going to promotion of the Grand Cherokee. Oddly enough the 'Sport' continued to sell very well and was actually more profitiable (per vehicle sold) than the 'Grand' Cherokee. (marketing/ad costs per vehicle at that time were about $300/vehicle).

    Have you seen the convertible version? So hideous and such an idiot car... A lady, (of course,) driving one pulled up to a stoplight next to me, and I could not help but laugh at what a stupid, stupid car it is. I really can't articulate my feelings on the car much past saying it's stupid.

    ^Speaking of laughter, the Panamera never fails to get me going.

    Admittedly, it's not the worst looking car.
    But at first glance, I think it's a sporty station wagon. Then I realize it's a Porsche for midlife crisis dads, so I start chuckling.
    Then I think about the name. Part Carrera, part Panama canal, and I'm busting a gut.

    270k of those in its first 4 years of life. On really cold days we just let it idle. It was a very comfortable vehicle to drive for long hours in.
    It hasn't moved from its current location since 1990

    Lets not forget the Yugo from teh late 1980s; and obsolete Fiat model bought and manufactured by Yugoslavians. It set the standard for unreliable vehicles. The joke was "YU want to GO, but it doesn't."

    The joke I always heard was that it was so small and underpowered that it could only take one person at a time. Otherwise they would have called it a "We go".
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    This car, the Pontiac Fiero, was one of the biggest POS I ever had the misfortune to drive.

    Close. I had to drive it into Manhattan to pick up the car's owner and it blew a coolant hose near Times Square. Fortunately the I was able to find a parking space before it melted. Turns out that in Manhattan there's an auto parts district around 8th Ave and 36th St. Spent my day fixing that POS and getting harassed by every sort of person offering unwanted advice or asking for a dollar. Never saw a cop thank goodness.

    The early '50s Nash Ramblers always looked kind of shapeless to me. Like a slim car gone fat.

    Reminds me of the shapelessness of the Citroen DS, which admittedly is not the most beautiful car, at least the rear end, but I would love one.
