    The worst car ever would have to have been the 1983 Fiat Ritmo. For parents owned one for a short period of time. For those people who don't know of the car, it was a shitty rust bucket, eventually there was a hole in the floor and in the door due to the rust. The paint work was crap, and the colour was a dark orange. Don't ever expect the car to start in cold weather. The car was terrible.

    Other shit heaps that I had was a 1986 Toyota Starlet. Rust wasn't a problem, but for a car with a 1 litre engine, you would get something like 25mpg on it for some strange reason, and to it leaked oil. The horn didn't work, the radio was crap, and the exaust pipe would have to be replaced every 3000-4000 miles. In the end, the car was stolen. Thank God.

    Any of you's have storys of crap cars?

    one of the worst cars ever is Zastava Yugo 45 (it's not called Yugo anymore - now it's Tempo. but it's the same car, so don't make a mistake and buy it). did you watch Die Hard 3 with Bruce Willis? that's the little yellow car McClane and that other guy hijack and McClane makes fun of it. my Mom used to own one. even though it was ten years old when she sold it, it looked like it was fifty years old. rust everywhere, rear view mirrors and headlights falling off, exhaust pipe that didn't really exhaust, small holes in the roof, broken ventilation system, broken lock on driver's door...and the engine! oh my god! everytime you started the car (provided you managed to start it, it often decided to take day-offs), the whole inside would get filled with smoke. during its last year, the car drove with only 3 working cylinders (!!!) and max speed was around 80 kph (around 43 mph)! even in the "good" days when all four cylinders worked, max speed never exceeded 120 kph, at which point the car was shaking and smoking like it was going to fall apart any minute. when my Mom finally bought an Opel Tigra, that was like going to bed with Anna Nicole Smith (the way she currently looks, about 100 pounds overweight and so on) and waking up with Paris Hilton...

    And, straight out of the arse-end of the former Soviet Union, it is the car/jeep that is used by the awful Russian army, it is the Lada Niva:





    You don't see many of these over here, but people laugh at it when they see this "machine". If the picture doesn't work, try here: http://trans.energopol.com.pl/lada005.jpg

    here's another Yugoslav car, this time Zastava 750. it's got a terrible engine, but it looks kinda cool, unlike Yugo.

    and this is a customized beast, Zastava 101, another shitty car, almost as bad as Yugo:

    So you guys hate Ladas too

    Whats laughable is that people still buy ladas down here, nevermind its a car made for Temperate not Tropical weather and thus overheats like an Afghani prostitute after a US raid. Lada cars come with the -5 CHA modifier and add +59% chance-of-making-the-girl-you-pick-up-for-a-date-run-faster-than-a-black-man-runs-after-raping-a-white-girl. Also please hit me for having a shitty sense of humor.

    hey

    The Ford Pinto had the gas tank right next to the rear bumper, so if you got hit in the back you run risk of blowing the car up. Sounds like a good car to me.

    I pity da foo who mock the Škoda 136. My family used to have one for about 20 years, and it ran just fine, except that it was dirty and rusty because my grandfather never did any maintenance on it.

    Fast? Strong? Hell no. Safe? Not by modern standards, no. Reliable? From what I know, more than any other car we've had (including other Škodas). Worst car ever built? Come over here so I can bitch-slap you.

    Also, it was still Czechoslovakia back then. :P


    Here, mock Trabant 601 instead!

    http://auta5p.car.cz/zkusenosti/trabant/trabant_02.jpg

    Str8 outta Zwickau, former German Democratic Republic, the Trabant would develop a max speed of over 100 kmh using a 2-stroke 3-valve engine. The car was clad in a bodywork made of plastic, which AFAIR came in four colours: grey, light cyan, light green, and khaki-yellowish.

    I've heard many English jokes about Škodas, but none were new to me - I had heard them before here, except they were all about the Trabant. Jeez, thank God they're gone.


    EDIT: Damn, you even beat me to that! Well, this post is staying here. I'll just replace the image with a link so it doesn't take up that much space... Lucky I didn't finish reading the thread before posting... :)

    Edits 2 through 16: Fixed some vocabulaty.

    Well, I have to say that I don't drive a babe magnet of a car myself. It is a 1990 1 litre Nissan Micra with non-matching hubcaps and 164,000 miles on the clocks. Some idiots broke into my car not so long ago and tried to hot-wire it but failed, and the tail pipe fell of it a few weeks ago. At least it gets me from A to B, just about.

    Here's a few more candidates:

    A French rust-bucket, a Renault 5:




    Out of Japan, the Suzuki Swift (or also known as a Geo Metro, Pontiac Firefly, Chevrolet Sprint, and Subaru Justy):




    And this Honda Civic got it good:
