    • Wow, born on 12-3. Skinny pig? Once a pig always a pig, no matter what moniker you choose.If you walk like a pig, look like a pig and smell like a pig, you are a pig! Now onto the ignorant list.

    • Pontiac Aztec
      The now defunct Pontiac (NYSE:GM) brand certainly made some good cars during its lifetime, and the Aztek was among them — save for the fact that its looks repelled the vast majority of buyers. The Aztek makes an appearance on just about everyone’s “ugliest cars” list and has become the benchmark vehicle for ugly car comparisons.

      What is sad is that the Aztek took a lot of abuse for its looks, which shrouded the fact that underneath, it was indeed a rather capable vehicle, complete with an attachable tent option and a body bred for off-asphalt use (just look at all that plastic cladding).

      • (((((The Aztek makes an appearance on just about everyone’s “ugliest cars” list and has become the benchmark vehicle for ugly car comparisons.))))
        ANS: This is true. It's high, boxy rear end, with that idiotic downslanted bumper was just horrible.

        ((((What is sad is that the Aztek took a lot of abuse for its looks))))
        ANS: Nothing sad about it. What is sad is there was a company that could greenlight such an awful design. A few minor modifications to the exact same body may have made it a big hit. Look what Buick did with the same assignment. The Rendezvous was nowhere NEAR as hideous as the Aztek.

        ((((which shrouded the fact that underneath, it was indeed a rather capable vehicle, complete with an attachable tent option and a body bred for off-asphalt use (just look at all that plastic cladding).))))
        ANS: So why weren't their DESIGNERS capable of making it better-looking? it was so ugly, everybody just jumped on it. Even the rear tent feature, which was kinda cool, became discounted. At least one auto press writer said when the tent was up, it looked like the car was wearing a diaper.*

        And it did.

        I think that review was the beginning of the end of the Aztek.

      • Maybe people wouldn't have hated it if it weren't so ugly.

      • I guess there are always someone who love to worshiping piece of #$%$. No wonder they could not tell the bad cars for the good. They think junk cars are good and good are bad.

      • didn't GM bury Aztek too and why?

      • How to avoid pooping during labor

        I heard some women poop while they are pushing. How embarassing. Are there any ways to avoid that? Or do you feel during that time nothing matters?
