Is that a Chev Chevette? The Vauxhall version looked a lot better.

You have to work hard to top the 1967 Mohs Ostentatiene Opera Sedan.

Buick Roadmaster from the early 1990s. God, they were ugly:

The AMC Pacer (around 1970?). What were the designers thinking when they came up with this?:

Who wants to post the Gremlin?

The French-made Deux Cheveux (made by Citreon or Peuguoet). Its original purpose was as a post-WWII utilitarian car for the average Frenchman, but it long outlived its purpose and was made up until the mid-1990s. Two cylinder engine and origianal had net seats (like a beach chair).

I've always had a strange attraction to the pacer and gremlin for some reason. The pacer wagon is even more ridiculously ugly, especially wood paneled of course. And the LT1 roadmaster kicked butt. And a guy on the benz forums has one of those citroen 2cv's and loves the hell out of it for some reason.
Here's a godawful custom R129 SL

And not just any Gremlin... the Levis Gremlin... with seats made of Levis denim material... oh so classic '70s.

skidder 03-31-13 10:45 AM

Here's the back end of the Buick Roadmaster I posted above. Ugly, ugly, ugly . . .

As BenzFanatic mentions above they had a big, powerful engine, but why did the Buick designers put that engine under such and ugly wrapper? Yuck!

skidder 03-31-13 10:51 AM

Don't know if this is ugly, but the body is so 'Plain Jane' I'll throw it up here for consideration. The Ford Fairmont, a box-on-wheels:

It actually was a nice riding vehicle.

BenzFanatic 03-31-13 11:10 AM

My friend's dad had a fairmont a couple of years back.. He bought it simply because it was in MINT condition. Practically no miles, had never seen a chicago winter, etc. Such a stereotypical old man vehicle; boxy, boring, slow, and smooth riding.
