The Worst Cars Of All Time: A Cash For Clunkers Special

Photobucket 1961 Chevy Corvair


Forbes and Time magazines have come out with  lists of the ten worst cars of all time.

I know that you have a list in your head, right now. Your list is highly likely to include a host of cars that are not on Forbes list, since personal experience trumps an industry analysts determinations anywhere, anytime.

But it’s a start to present the cars from the Forbes list first.

AMC Pacer (1975-80)

Chevrolet Vega (1970-74)

Citroen SM (1970-72)

Fiat Strada (1978-88)

Ford Bronco II (1983-89)

Ford Edsel (1957-59)

I hate to include the Edsel. The Edsel is the sexiest, lushest beauty of a collectable. The Edsel represents what makes us lust after a car in the first place.


Ford Pinto (1971-80)

Honda Accord hatchback (1978)

Mazda RX-2 (1971)

Oldsmobile Delta 88 (1979-84)

Pontiac Fiero (1984)

Renault Dauphine (1956-68) S

achsenring Trabant (1957-62)

Yugo GV (1981-91)

NOTES:

Time Magazine’s list is humonguous! It covers cars going back to the 1899 Horsey Horseless!

A Forbes has a list of the top 10 that starts in 1975 with the AMC Pacer. So They shouldn’t call it “Of all time”, but they qualify as clunkers now.
