1974 Ford Mustang II
The Pinto-based Mustang II nearly killed the Mustang franchise. Its sole claim to fame being a bit of product placement on the original "Charlie's Angels" series. Plain chick Sabrina drove the notchback Ghia model, smoking hot Kelly (played by Farrah Fawcett) naturally got the Cobra. But the joke was on her--its smogged choked V8 put out about 140 hp. In a rare moment of understatement, Road & Track simply called it "neither fast, nor particularly good handling."
