From the bland color to the boring lines, one can’t help yawning at the sight of this car.

1996 Ariel Atom

It’s like a kiddie toy-car met a sports’ racer and this is what they produced as off-spring.

1989 Geo Metro

The design had potential but the makers didn’t give the car the booty it deserved.

1966 Peel Trident

A picture is worth a thousand words.

1959 Buick Electra 225

The car looks edgy. Perhaps a little too edgy. It looks murderously angry somehow.

1959 Ford Anglia

We’re afraid the ‘Anglia’ looks bad from every angle. Is that what Ford was aiming for?

1975 Ford Granada

Why, oh why? Why would anyone want to show this to their date?

1977 Dodge Charger

Size matters, yes, but in the right places. Whoever wanted a super long bonnet?

1957 Renault Dauphine

The car’s look matches the scenery in the backdrop – dull and dreary.

1961 Checker Marathon

en.wikipedia.org

Fancy buying a taxi that’s actually a car, anyone?

1986 Hyundai Excel

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyundai_Excel#/media/File:1986_Hyundai_Pony_in_the_UK_in_1986_-_02.jpg

Big booties are all the rage, but this just looks unnatural. No, not on a car.

1968 Subaru 360

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_360#/media/File:Subaru-360Custom.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

The car looks like a joke. Like humor in motion.

1976 Jaguar XJ-S

Not particularly ghastly, but something’s just not right about this one.

1986 Cadillac Eldorado

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac_Eldorado#/media/File:7th_Cadillac_Eldorado.jpg

This car needs to know, curves are beautiful. It could do with some.

1970 Bond Bug Three-Wheeler

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bond_Bug#/media/File:Bond_Bug_ca_1970.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Because every Bond and every bug travels on three wheels. Not.

1958 Lincoln Continental

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Continental#/media/File:Lao_royal_Continental.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

This car looks distinctively like one that’s been broken down and patched up hastily. That couldn’t have been intentional.

1975 AMC Pacer

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMC_Pacer#/media/File:1975_AMC_Pacer_base_model_frontleftside.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

This is a classic example that proves that everything that’s old is not gold. Not at all.

1970 AMC Gremlin

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VgrNr7-1abs

From the name to its design, nothing is appealing about this 1970 Gremlin.

1987 Subaru Justy

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subaru_Justy#/media/File:Suby_justy.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Now this is just unfortunate. Launched at a time when the world was seeing some really new-age automobile design, Justy just didn’t impress anyone.

1965 Renault 16

One can look hard but not find a redeeming quality to this car. We challenge you to try.

1958 Ford Thunderbird

This car looks straight out of a cartoon. And is named as such. Mission Accomplished!

1990 Chrysler LeBaron Landau

Now let’s be fair. This one is not so bad. Unless of course, you like your car to have some distinctive character other than a typical angular form.

1970 Triumph Stag

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Triumph_Stag#/media/File:Triumph_Stag_1972.JPG

A front grill with assimilated headlights in the ‘70s? How very original!

1973 Oldsmobile Omega

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oldsmobile_Omega#/media/File:Oldsmobile_Omega_sedan_2_--_09-03-2010.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Maybe the car would have been a success if the makers put some effort in the design.

1971 Mercury Cougar

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_Cougar#/media/File:1971_Mercury_Cougar.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Another uninspired design. We guess car makers weren’t much into out-of-the-box thinking in the 70s.

1978 Volvo 262C

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volvo_262C#/media/File:1978_Volvo_262_Coup%C3%A9_Bertone.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

The car’s bonnet is so boxy, it’s like the pug of cars. Okay, that was a bad one, but look at the car – does it deserve any better?

1971 Ford Pinto

The car is photographed in black-and-white to dim its unappealing contours (much like the selfies of this age).

2004 Chevrolet Malibu MAXX

Good old Chevy launched this model to people questioning repeatedly “Is this a hatchback or a sedan?”

1974 Jaguar XK-E V12 Series III

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jaguar_E-Type#/media/File:Jaguar_E-Type_Series_3_roadster.JPG

Now, it’s hard to hate on a Jag, but seriously, some things are hard to appreciate, no matter how hard you try.

1975 Bricklin SV1

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bricklin_SV-1#/media/File:Bricklin_SV-1_AMI.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

What were they trying here? Was “pseudo-bird-look” the design brief?

1996 Ford Taurus

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Taurus_(third_generation)#/media/File:3rd-Mercury-Sable-sedan.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

This one could possibly look good, but only at some angles. Some, very few angles.

1968 Lamborghini Espada

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lamborghini_Espada#/media/File:Lamborghini-Espada.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

No matter how shiny the car’s paint may be, nothing can distract one from the odd shape of its luggage compartment.

1983 Renault Alliance

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renault_Alliance#/media/File:1985_Renault_Alliance_convertible.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Clearly, the design team was severely underpaid on the Renault team that was in charge of Alliance.

1975 Morgan Plus 8 Propane

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Morgan_Plus_8#/media/File:1969MorganPlus8.jpg

What’s even going on here? These are the kind of cars we imagine aliens to travel in.

1976 Aston Martin Lagonda

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aston_Martin_Lagonda#/media/File:Aston_Martin_Lagonda_West_London.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

We wonder if this car was meant exclusively for non-adults. It doesn’t look like average-sized adults could fit into it.

http://momentcar.com/chevrolet/1976/chevrolet-chevette/

This looks like the fusion of a toy car and hatchback taxi.

1956 Nash Ambassador Super

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nash_Ambassador#/media/File:1956_Nash_Ambassador_Super_four-door_Sedan.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Ambassadors are an acquired taste anyway, but this one is particularly hard to appreciate.

1980 Cadillac Seville

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cadillac_Seville#/media/File:1980_Cadillac_Seville.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

This car looks like it should be parked inside a vintage discotheque. That too, as a joke.

1973 Datsun B-210

https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/8/83/1973-1977_Datsun_120Y_%28B210%29_saloon_in_Ipoh%2C_Malaysia_%2801%29.jpg

They probably photographed the car against the backdrop of beautiful flowers to draw attention away from its unsightly form.

1978 FSO Polonez

Some cars are more functional than beautiful. This is most definitely one of them.

1976 Rolls-Royce Camargue

One of the most expensive cars of its time, 1976 Rolls-Royce Camargue was deemed clumsy and ridiculous.

1976 Bristol Blenheim

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bristol_Type_603#/media/File:Bristol_603_ca_1984.jpg

en.wikipedia.org

Another one that was rejected outright for its non-appealing looks and unflattering style – 1976 Bristol Blenheim.

2009 Ferrari California

This one was dismissed as tacky, and no one liked its interiors or the exteriors.

1967 Fiat 124 Sport Coupe

A Sports Coupe? Which sport may that be? A family outing maybe.
