Not *too* ugly to look at, a bit like a Hyundai ATOZ on steroids, but how about this for an ugly name.
The Mazda Bongo Friendee :o
Stop sniggering at the back.

How about the "new" interiors begining to pop up everywhere? they look like my old grannies table cloth and curtain material!! [:(!]
Dreadfull things and they seem to be in every make and model now!! I saw a nice Mazda 323f recently, when I looked inside I was appalled!!All the panels were in floral patterns!! [:0]
By the way arry_B what you doing to your m/bike to make it less ugly? Your club looks fun, and biking around Wessex is a lovely way to spend your free time. [^]

Somewhere on this board there's a post with a concept drawing of a "modern" DS - that was pretty impressive stuff, make a good C5 replacement. Speaking of C5s, that's an ugly car...

Gotta go some way be out ugly the Renault "Bebop" special editions. One of the first special editions that were worth less than the standard car. They aged as well as an '80s ra-ra skirt.

Aye - we've got a good bunch in the riders club locally, and some great rideouts round here. The TS is enduring a full stripdown and rebuild - chassis bearings, rewiring, engine and gearbox strip, repaint, stainless fasteners throughout etc. I've spent far too much compared to what it's worth, but it's a labour of love - rather like owning a Citroen.

What about the lurid interiors on the Vauxhall Antibes special editions of the 80s?

<fx: Cough> Err had one of them. I thought the Bebop's were much worse. And so were the Pzass's come to think of it.

Worlds ugliest cars and the bloody awfull stinking vw beetle isn't there, something well wrong there.
Ugly to drive ugly to ride in (freeze your tits off in winter) ugly to work on, ugly to look at (shaped like a DUNG beetle) brought about by none other than Adolf Hittler and you truly have the worlds ugliest car.
Sound bleedin horrible too, engine in back, a car couldn't get much worse, bastards sold in their millions and some wierdo's are still making 'em, even wierder wierdo's are still buying'em, go figure.
Hehehe mine sh!t heap.......NOT[:D]

" They say that an infinite number of monkeys with an infinite number of typewriters would eventually come up with the entire works of Shakespeare. Citroen decided to try this technique with six monkeys and a bag of meccano. The BX took them 12 minutes to make (including a 2 minute banana break)."
LMAO Very amusing,, good job the AX isnt on there..[}:)]

The BX design (by Bertone no less as everyone here probably knows) was originally offered to Reliant (the 3 wheeler company) but they weren't interested in making a large car. Or so I read somewhere on the internet (so it must be true [:p]).
I like the coupes on this page. Anyone fancy having a go at making one?

Just remember that the Bertone stylist for the BX was responsible for such horrors as the Miura, Countach and Murcielago. Marcello Gandini clearly didn't have an eye for design now, did he?

Renault Laguna Estate (old model). Has anyone seen a worst attempt to convert a hatch. They should have finished the job off properly and painted the estate bit a different colour. Everytime I see one I visualise the hatch bit (i.e. 90% of it) and look at the estate end as a bolt-on.
