    Ok does it make me odd that I would be proud to have three of the previous 4 cars in my garage? (no Aztecs!)

    Someone who worked at my high school in the early 90s drove a 1974 AMC Ambassador that was a sort of muddy orange clay color. In addition to its odd malaise-era color scheme, the front grille treatment just seemed ugly and ungainly to my eyes. It was the sort of car that through no fault of its own deserved to be turned into soup cans.

    Ugliest car (in my opinion) that I ever owned was the Renault Fuego.

    Most of the new Nissans - I think that they hit most of them
    with an "Ugly Stick" before they leave the factory.
    Of course Aztek owners need to buy something to replace them with.

    This to me is about the ugliest thing I've ever seen on 4 wheels.

    Basil owned a Fuego?

    Joking, of course. When Basil drive the Fuego, we were tooling around in an 18i. That makes three Renaults on the list... you think the prince of darkness is bad!
