There are plenty of lists of good cars and beautiful cars, but what fun are those? Instead, let's be glad we never bought one of the truly ugly cars the automotive industry tried out. Often that was because they sold so poorly that few were made. And you can see why. Shown above is the 1951 Allard P2 Safari.
There are a few things in life we simply cannot wrap our heads around, and this is one of them: Who thought it was a good idea to graft the front of a sports car onto the back of a woody wagon? British automaker Allard did, and the results are every bit as revolting as one might expect. Production estimates for this Ford-powered eyesore range between 10 and 13, some five of which are known to exist. We imagine the rest were destroyed by mobs with torches and pitchforks.
As in any list, you may not agree with some of the choices -some of the newer cars don't really stand out in ugliness the way old ones do. But you might get a kick out of reading what made these cars ugly at Automobile magazine. -via Digg
