It looks kind of like a Star Wars Stormtrooper who was accidentally turned into a car.

I think the name "Longhorn" came from the looks of the front bumper.

That was a waste of that guy's 14 years.

Reminds me of Tim Burton's Batmobile. Even for a movie car, it didn't look good, and it seemed to have a top speed of 20mph.

I do like how before aerodynamics was properly known, they basically just guessed.

It's like Victorian bridges being massively overengineered - because they had no idea what would stay up so threw everything at it.

It's pregnant, it'll look fine after it gives birth.

My parents had a '41 Continental back in the late-50s that my dad restored.  He yanked the V12 and replaced it with a Studebaker V8.  He met some guys from Ford at a car show back then and showed them what he did and said the V12 was a worthless engine.  They agreed, saying it was basically the regular V8 with four extra cylinders slapped onto it.  The Studebaker engine had no problem moving that land yacht down the road.

The worst beater I drove for a year was a Dodge Aspen my aunt gave me after putting tin foil on the spark plugs for some reason and toasted the engine wiring a good deal. Then my sister knocked the front grill out hitting a deer. Later that winter my dad blew out the back window with a rock zinging out of his snow blower. Good runner, good memories.

Had the Plymouth version, Volare.  Was an okay car, body was 50% Bondo and the backend was too light for the 318 V8 it had, it did move when you wanted to.  Blew the engine due to a leak at the engine/transmission connection.  Couldn't afford to fix being a grad student and the fix was more then the car was worth.

In the late 90s, I was vacationing in Harbor Springs, in Northern Michigan. Parked at my hotel was one of these, but with no badging or manufacturer's branding. It must have been a road-test vehicle prior to release. I remember thinking what a horrible, god-awful design it was. To this day, the ugliest car I've ever seen. Like somebody over-inflated a Honda CRX (the CRX was fine, just not blown up into an Aztec).

Right into the passenger compartment. So you gotta really get a run at it.

A stormtrooper made out of Cottonnelle.

which was headed by a 4.8-liter flathead V12 sourced from a 1941 Lincoln

So a 1930s car with a time travelling engine?

A Scion? My son and I, 20 years ago, agreed that if it was brown, it would look like a UPS truck that had been washed in hot water and put in the dryer.

It took him 14 years to build, so it wasn't the 1930s any more by the time he finished.

The 1930 squashed storm trooper is hideous and the  Pontiac Axtec is ugly but I think Nissan has a contender:
