The 50 Worst Cars of All Time


my favorite on the list is the 1978 pacer. :)

My wife had a Gremlin when we met. It deserves to be on this list. The metal on the outside rusted well before it's time, and there wasn't enough metal on the inside for me to install a tape deck.
The Ford Explorer only made the list because it started the trend of evil SUVs? Couldn't they just let this be a fun story?

and I'm ashamed to admit I owned a Ford Pinto from 1972-77. Yes, I'm that old.

:) LOL, i'm not laughing at how old you are, but man a pinto!

with the puke tan and yellow pinstriping.

those were some bad assed go-carts.

other cars are the 1978 Porche 914, anything GM made in the 80's, and the 2005 Chrysler 300.

Hell, man, don't apologize for buying American when the foreign onslaught of small cars was beginning to crest. VWs were everywhere, Toyotas and Datsuns were popping up. But you stood strong and bought American. As did I, a very nice '73 Pinto with a "Spring Special" metallic green paint job. That little baby did the best she could. And you, I and thousands of others will have memories of a time when a relationship with a car was more intimate -- actually lifting the hood and changing the points, plugs and condensor. "Turn over, baby" was something we asked of our Pinto's starter and battery, especially on cold nights, while today the term for young people means something else entirely. I'm glad I have a car today that I can count on to instantly start and zig zag about town, but I kind of cherish those old days when I'd walk out to my Pinto in the driveway, needing to get to first-shift work at a tool-and-die, then later to classes at a community college, and wonder if the little girl was going to carry me there. There's a pride you should feel in having owned a Pinto, McCaskey. Our little Fords gave everything they could. Best of all, they weren't Vegas.

Patience is a great virtue.

don, man i was just kidding on you driving a pinto when i said this on the other post.

"don, you keep telling us you drive a mazda and how much you love them. i saw you today driving up a beat up a 1971 lime green pinto with a mazda logo duct taped to the front of it. i hate to be the one to break it to you, but that's not a mazda! oh, and by the way your car made the #1 spot for the worst car ever during the years 1960-1974. :) oh, and to make you feel old, i was not even born when your car was made."

i'm pretty proud of myself for only being 2 years off, i even got the color right. :). :) :)

Yep, you got the 'ol Pinto pegged. I think she left me stranded twice; dead batteries.

Tell you what, at today's gas prices, I wouldn't mind having her back as a drive-around-and-run-errands tool. I'd appreciate all the envious looks coming my way from hot young women at stoplights, plus it'd beat filling up the Trailblazer I have now, LOL.

They were both great cars and dependable.

A 1974 and 1979.

My first car was a 1965 Opel Cadet L

Blazing top end speed of 52 mph. 6 volt electrical system. Gas mileage, forget about it.

my first car in 1973. It was a 1967 GTO. 400 C.I.D. and 36.9 per gallon. Life was GOOD!

- Just the KAT, thinking out loud again. :)

i'm imagining my second car, a 95 neon, will be on one of these lists, if it has not already made it. i had to constantly take it in. when it died it only had 130,000 miles, and i was good at changing it's oil and stuff. if it was a toyota, mazda, or honda it would have still been running.

this is for all you pinto lovers out there. :)
