TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) If you think you
drive a beater, you may be right.
Most Questionable Car Designs Of All Time
Hagerty Insurance, the nations largest collector car
insurance company, has just released their list of the Most
Questionable Car Designs Of All Time and the tiny,
1970s AMC Pacer tops the ranks as the ride that only a
mother could love.
Turns out, clients think the puny Pacer is poorly styled, and
liken its compact design to a pregnant roller skate
or a fish bowl on wheels.
Other hunks of junk that made the list include...
The 1980s-inspired Yugo, which is known for its
poor quality and constant mechanical flaws. As one former Yugo
owner puts it, My Yugo improved my mechanic skills
Notorious junker, the 70s-esque Ford Pinto, which
is widely known for its design flaw that caused tons of
explosions in rear-end collisions. In one respondents
words, Underpowered, cheap plastic, bodies prone to rust,
and oh yeah, they blow up too!
Finally, the much newer Pontiac Aztek doesnt fare
too well among car collectors due to its awkward, sporty
appearance. A car lover jokes, There mustve been a
front-end design team and a rear-end design team, and the two
teams never spoke to each other.
