I like the cars that I have owned over the years. My first car was a 1973 Pontiac Grand Prix (back when they were still cool). I’ve also owned a ’66 Chevelle Malibu, a ’60 VW bug (no guts – I was actually passed by a guy on a 10 speed while going uphill), a ’60 Chevy Stepside, several other pickups, and currently drive a Red PT Cruiser with wood paneling (what a poser).
Anyway, when I found these cars, even my worst (a Ford Station Wagon) looked good.
Consider this an early Christmas present – Five for Friday times 2 – this week only – Five becomes Ten.
These were found at Time (and you can see the rest there):
A semi-horseless carriage. They put a horse head on the front in hopes that it wouldn’t scare real horses. Umm hm:
The Janus. Going or coming, it looks the same. The backseat passengers face backwards and the doors are actually on the front and back rather than the sides. Weird:
The Octoauto – too many wheels:
The Trident – this one looks like something from the Jetsons. I kind of like it… for the backyard:
Can’t leave out the Edsel:
Or the Yugo – the world’s first disposable car:
The Pacer. Isn’t there a basketball team named after it?:
How about an amphibious car? (it leaked):
The Pinto – it doubled as a BBQ if you were ever hit from behind”
The Trabant – the dealer would pay you to take it.
