Apparently the designers could not decide on a van or a truck.

So they compromised.

Ahh, reminds me of the '84 Toyota Van my family had..
Couldn't get out of its own way...

What is wrong with the Baja? You could have said the PT Cruiser, a Scion xB, pretty much any Saturn, or of course the Pontiac Aztek.

The Baja would have been okay if they didn't insist on the damn two-tone paintjob.

I liked the Aztek, dammit!

I've been designing a sand rail type flatbed truck lately. It's going to be ass ugly but it should go like a raped ape once it's built. The inspiration comes from the Arial Atom. Zoom!

I don't think they guy that put this together was going for looks.
 
2010-09-11 9:58:56 PM  
For as ugly as the Aztek allegedly was, I always seemed to see a crap ton of them in MI growing up. Dunno why they sold so well.

Now that little Nissan thing with the asymmetric rear window...just...no.

And the FJ Cruiser looks like Toyota outsourced the design work to Fisher-Price.

Here's the car I drove during much of my 20's shown in its final resting place on my dad's farm.

'72 Chevy Chevelle with a suped up 350 V8 under the hood. Ugly as sin, wrecked several times, fun as hell to drive.

You can't see from this angle that the back was kinda bashed in. I opened and closed the trunk with a tire iron.

I managed to pick up and date an amazing number of... "Interesting" women when it was my car. Few were the kind you would want to marry, though.

** Sigh ** I STILL sometimes miss blasting down winding rural state highways and back roads in that old beast of a car, listening to Bob Seger or some other classic rock on the stereo, having some chick with a bad reputation sitting next to me on the split bench front seat stroking my thigh as we rolled along...

Goddamn it, why did I have to go and get older and more respectable, anyway?

You should be beaten with a tire iron for leaving a Chevelle to rot in a field.

Why do they call it a van-up? The truck version isn't called a truckup. I would call it a packup because you could pack all the kids in it for soccer practice and still stop by the quarry for a load of flagstone.

Your dates won't fit in a normal size car so you need a small pickup to haul them around?

As an auto mechanic, I must say that those Mitsu vans are some of the worst vehicles ever as far as service access. One of my customers had one util it died at about 200K, and I farking HATED that thing...they're ever worse than the first Toyota minivans. The owner loved it and kept dumping money into it until the trans failed.

Another thing I hated about that van was driving it. It's the only vehicle I've ever driven where the driver's ass is in front of the steering axis. It just felt dreadfully wrong steering that thing around tight corners.

Dear God, what is that thing? It looks like a new Beetle on steroids. Like a big cartoonish muscleman.

I drive a Subaru (WRX), so I'm not exactly a stranger to odd looking cars, but I thought the Baja was hideous. Not as bad as the Aztec, though.

I can't really fault the guy with the Van-Up, though. It isn't that hideous.

I would take a Fiat Multipla, add a row of those annoying blue headlights on that muffin top below the windshield. Then, I would have the ugliest and most annoying car in the world.

illicit: You should be beaten with a tire iron for leaving a Chevelle to rot in a field.


Long story short, there was massive amounts of body rust. Well, that and the "wrecked several times" part I mentioned. Trust me, there is very little left of the car that can't be bought cheaply and in better condition from an aftermarket supplier.

Most of the guts that were worth saving (engine, transmission, interior parts including that infamous split bench seat) went to restoring a '72 El Camino, so there's that at least.
 
2010-09-11 10:10:23 PM  
The Pacer was much like my 77 Pinto hatchback... you could fit damn near anything in the back of that vehicle. now, whether the vehicle would get you to where you were going, that's another story.

the running-shoe look of the Hyundai Santa Fe is a design I just don't get. Ugly, maybe, just odd, yes.

/no, the 77 Pintos didn't explode. They just died by the side of the road. Repeatedly.
