VIDEO ON MSN MONEY
Maybe it is just me but when I was growing up new cars were a spectacle that was awaited by everyone with bated breath. Each model year was as distinct as a finger print in most cases and had stand out features that made model identification easy. Now when someone is asked to describe a getaway vehicle from a crime scene about all they can say with any certainty is what color it was. LOL
In fact the sameness effect is so bad that I cannot even discern who the actual manufacturer is unless I get a really close up look and can see the emblem. Who ever is running the design schools today seems to be stuck with the dumpling on wheels concept. The technology is great but the styling leaves a whole lot to be desired in my opinion. Even Europe is following this boring trend. If I am going to pay in excess of a hundred grand for a car it is going to have to look like something other than a Bismarck or long john donut on wheels.
usually makes the list as one of the worst top ten cars ever made, killed Pontiac.
I also don't think any real man should be driving a Prius, or Nissan Leaf, there are better looking Cars that get good Gas Mileage
So basically, people get embarrased to be seen in a vehicle that doesn't look like a basic, generic car. Most of the cars in this list are unique, some really ugly, but unique nonetheless.
I have on 02 Pt Cruiser and am not embarrassed to drive it. There are definitely things I don't like about it like the materials/workmanship quality and fuel consumption, but I have no problem with the styling.
EPA rating: The most 'smug' producing car on the road.
Sales slogan: Only the most pretentious of losers can drive a prissy-a$s!
SMART????? hmn? wouldn't want to be caught between a Buick and a Caddy! NOT very smart to drive one!
