Ugly Cars

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder, but these  cars definitely needed a generous beholder to be sold. No, your screen didn’t shrink, there’s no photoshop and it wasn’t just a concept car. This Aston Martin Lagonda wagon, manufactured between 1976 and 1989, was hoped to appeal customers who would otherwise spend their money on products from Rolls Royce and Bentley. Guess what happened?

AMC Gremlin. It seems as if 40% of the vehicle’s body was perhaps unintentionally cropped off on the drafting table. The car was introduced on April Fools’ Day 1970, need I say more?
