The 50 Worst Cars of All Time

The 50 Worst Cars of All Time - The 50 Worst Cars of All Time - TIME: "On the 50th anniversary of the Ford Edsel, TIME and Dan Neil, Pulitzer Prize-winning automotive critic and syndicated columnist for the Los Angeles Times, look at the greatest lemons of the automotive industry."

Takes a while to go through, but it's worth some time. Hat tip to Art Scott.

Indeed. Doesn't get to drive it much, though.

Missing my own personally-experienced monstrosities, the 1979 Plymouth Sport Suburban and the 1985 Audi 5000S, the latter a triumph of German confectionary on which Everything broke--Everything. The former was simply the Hummer/Excursion of station wagons...I did take about 10 fellow college students into DC in it once, but spent the next half hour finding a parking space it would fit in. Also, it owerwhelmed its own brakes and transmission rather frequently...and why wouldn't it, as it weighed appromixately as much as the Martian moon Phobos. Well, maybe only half as much as the Saturn V delivery crawler. It was the car you wanted when playing chicken with most military tanks, however.
