1970 Chevy Vega

Panicked by a flood of mid-size Japanese cars entering the American market, General Motors rushed its Chevy Vega into production. The result? Perhaps the worst car GM ever built. The Vega was priced right and sold well at first, but numerous issues forced the model’s reputation into a nosedive. The car ran so hot, it caused everything under the hood to warp and crack. Engines would burn oil or catch fire, and the hood would even come through the windshield during collisions. On top of everything else, the Vega’s body rusted so badly that entire bumpers would wither away during car washes.

    My parents had the ’74 model with the aluminum engine block. They used to comment about going to get a quart of gas and fill up the oil…

  18. I had a 1973 Pontiac Astre, which is Pontiac’s version of the Vega. I loved that car. Trouble is – if I had it now, I’m 29 years older and 50 lbs. heavier. I’d probably never get in and out of the thing !!

  19. My parents had one; you could see the road through the hole in the back floor. My sister also had the misfortune of owning one (her first car); it was a lemon-yellow color (with rust spots). ‘Nuff said.
