The 16 Worst Cars in History

1975 AMC Pacer

1975 AMC Pacer

Billed as “the first wide small car,” the Pacer’s width couldn’t fix its gruesome ugliness. Designer Richard A. Teague based the Pacer’s shape on how a football looked as it sliced through the air, but it reminded the public of other things. Unkind nicknames included Hamster-Mobile, Moonbuggy, Bubble Car and Egg on Wheels. After six years, the Pacer disappeared from AMC’s lineup.

    Hey, these were great little cars. Unusual, but not “bad”. I have fond memories of being squeezed into one to get a ride home from track practice every week… with five cheerleaders.
