A big part of the PT Cruiser's truly ingenious ugliness is the fact that it looks like a shortened hearse [...]
But even that was done before much, much better :)

Come out to play-ay...

The trabant is at least one that really smells ugly (still 2 stroke).

In this list I miss the US postal car:

Rather than ugly 8 inch head-lights, try on 8 head-lights and computerized dash in an '87 Aston Martin Lagonda

The Trabant; although I hear it has a cult following nowadays.
Kinda looks like something Mr Pininfarina did on the cheap after he finished the Wolseley 24/80 / Austin Freeway and Peugeot 404.

The car goes into the boat?


That reminds me of the famous North Korean spy infiltration vessels.. their so called "mother ships"

This one can't be missed in this lineup

It looks better as a boat:

No, some wags at the BBC decided to mutilate a perfectly good boat by welding the car body onto it. They read an interview with the car's designer where he stated he was inspired by yacht styling. So what if his car was a boat after all? British humour.

Beautiful! Seriously. This will become a classic.

At least this one is ugly on purpose. Most of those others were trying to make something pretty but failing.

My vote for 2017 goes to Toyota Corolla.

I always think one of two things:

- snow plow

- Star Trek planet eater

When I walk in front of one, I wonder if it will suck me in.

Too bad - I wanted one but just cannot get over that it might eat me.  I have to wait until they will not eat me.

It just proves that European cars are more stylish, even if they are made in japan.

I absolutely agree w.r.t. the PT Cruiser. It's worth noting, however, that the PT Cruiser was just one of the (unfortunately) more popular cars that was the result of the "retro" fetish that gripped American car manufacturers in the early 2000s. Many other terrible-looking cars also came out of this, such as:
