QOTD: What’s the Worst Looking Car From the Year You Were Born? Receive updates on the best of TheTruthAboutCars.com
Today’s QOTD idea came about back in the latter half of May, when Matthew Guy pondered the exact opposite of this question. He is very old, and so in his malaise birth year of 1980 Guy pegged BMW’s 6 Series as the best looking car available.
This week, we move things to a more negative light. What was the worst looking car from the year you were born?
Oh, no it’s not that Accord Coupe, which is lovely. Most of you regulars know roughly how old I am, but for the record my birth year is 1986. After the malaise, before the Dream of the Nineties, and right in the midst of mass-market aero (here’s to you, Sable), I’ll be picking from a largely downsized and more-than-ever front-drive selection of vehicles. But which is the worst looking? Which deserves the ugly digital ink?
Ah, here we are. In its last year of production, it’s Chrysler’s Executive limousine. On sale between 1983 and 1986, Chrysler produced 1,493 of the K-car limousines. Styled like the E-Class and New Yorker, the Executive turned up the volume for its elite business customers.
Said customers may have included owners of successful video rental stores, or perhaps outlets selling scratch and dent appliances. The whole idea was sort of off-base and easily forgotten shortly afterward, which is probably for the best.
What are your picks for the worst looking vehicles from the year of your birth?
