In the interest of full disclosure, that's my byline on AOL Autos' list of the worst cars from 50 automakers. Yes, it's not the only such list we've seen recently, and you are of course strongly encouraged to let me have it in the comments. Anyone who calls out 50 different automotive brands for their worst FAIL moments had better have thick skin, which I do.
I also have a sense of humor – and not for a minute do I or anyone else at our sister site that weighed in on the list think it is as definitive as it is funny. If you've been around the classic car hobby for a while, you come to realize that there is a charm to be had in even the worst cars. Growing up in the 1970s and 1980s meant witnessing the Dark Ages of the auto industry firsthand, the era from which many of these vehicles hail. While these cars were not a lot of fun to own back then, today we can look back and laugh at them, the automotive equivalent of polyester jumpsuits and acid wash jeans.
There are undoubtedly many more vehicles that could be added to the list, so feel free to join in the discussion after viewing the list here.
