I don't think there's a car uglier than the Aztek. I also don't think Detroit made a good looking car during the 80s-mid 90s.

Oh, and the Nissan Quest. Can't believe I forgot. I throw up in my mouth a little when I see one of those.

Not only is the Aztek butt-ugly but its 3400 series V-6 is horrid aswell

The Buick Rendevous is a disgrace to a dog turd too.

You guys are still crawling on the permafrost.
A Minerva?!
But, of course.

I saw one in at the AACA Fall meet at Hersehy a few years ago. I like to wander thru the trailers as the cars are unloaded and driven to the show field. I saw a Minerva from the early years--probably teens or earlier. It was a Town Car with an enclosed passenger compartment for Madame. It even had a "speaking tube" to communicate with the driver. I had never seen a Minerva, previously, so I asked the owner how many of these were built, and he replied. " This is one of......one" The ONLY one of this year and model--how do you put a price on that?

Saab Sonnet.
Not a bad concept-but the execution with all the scoops stuck on was awful.

The H2 looks like a Jeep clone that a company like Kia would produce.

The Aztec...don't get me started......

You have to admit though, marketing did their job. What other 2-letter car names by themselves conjure up a solid familiar mental image? M3 / M5 .... ?

Maybe it won't be so bad if they could hybridize it and make it 'green'.

Ugliest car: pretty much anything currently in production. Manufacturers seem to be vying to see who can come up with the ugliest automobile, and they outdo each other all the time.

Agreed, although I've got to give another vote to the Aztek.
