Ah, remember the Vega and its counterpart, the Ford Pinto (aka the Ford Flambé)? Who among us hasn’t had a car in their lifetime that they haven’t since looked back and thought, “What the hell was I thinking?” Mine is a toss-up between my 1974 Jeep Wagoneer which had a carburetor designed by Shell Oil and a body that rusted out to the point where the tailgate literally fell apart, and a 1984 Subaru wagon that was so underpowered it couldn’t climb a hill in Colorado without having to drop into first gear. After 60,000 miles the oil-sender unit blew out, the engine seized, and I practically had to sue the dealership for not honoring the extended warranty. Six months later I sold it back to them and bought my 1988 Pontiac, which I still have.
So, what was your favorite awful car?
