Nothing like the 1970s when trailing a motor home meant outfitting your Caddy or Lincoln to haul that big Airstream across the country.

And we certainly couldn't leave out the infamous Angelyne and her pink Corvette cruising the streets of West Hollywood!

Some say her former rich husband funded those life-sized billboards, while Angelyne has claimed it was investors who picked up the bills.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but everyone knows ugly. And there have been many repellent, revolting and unnecessarily misshapen wheeled vehicles over the years. But these 100 in particular, well, they're the ugliest cars of them all.

Look at the list and you'll find that vehicles built before World War II aren't here. That's not because there weren't some heinous contraptions built before then, but to 21st-century eyes it's tough to make judgments in the context of 75 or 85 years ago. And before that, the way a car looked was almost always determined solely by how its primitive parts bolted together. Design virtually didn't exist. But since the war, ugly has been on a terrific tear.

Each disaster here is listed by the first year of its hideous generation. What's shocking is that some of these ugly cars were in production not just for years, but decades. Decades.

Beauty may be skin deep, but ugly runs deep throughout the unibody.



100. 2010 Porsche Panamera: Number 67 on Edmunds.com's list of the "100 Greatest Cars of All Time." But while the roof line may provide decent headroom, it makes the car a misshapen hunchback.

99. 2010 Toyota Prius: The polliwog of green piety. Efficiency reduced down to the point of ennui.

98. 2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser: Styling cues of the '40s shoveled atop the proportions of a front-drive station wagon. Retro done wrong.

97. 2011 Nissan Leaf: Advanced all-electric car cleverly disguised as a bubble gum bubble with door handles. The future has to be more interesting than this.

96. 1959 Buick Electra 225: All the 1950s styling clichés fight each other to the death on a relentlessly tasteless car. You could slice ham with those tail fins.

95. 1973 Austin Allegro: So weird it could have been French. But no, it was British Leyland's most awkward shape. Today it's an icon of English decline. It had a square steering wheel!

94. 1959 Ford Anglia: Everything that was wrong with American styling of the late-1950s is even worse on a tiny British Ford. The roof line seems to die of embarrassment at the rear window.

93. 1990 Chrysler Imperial: The once glorious Imperial name is slapped on a stretched, front-drive K-car chassis and then stuck with a ridiculous nose. A car that begged to be abandoned in the desert even before its lease was up.

92. 1975 Ford Granada: Hideous imitation Mercedes atop an old, disposable Falcon chassis. It was clumsy in every way. Despite its huge sales then, it's an obscurity today.

91. 1957 Trabant: When East Germany wasn't busy screwing up everything else, it forced its citizens to buy this rattling bucket of ugly misery. Styled so that no two body panels ever aligned with each other.

90. 1958 Ford Thunderbird: The classy and classic two-seater devolves into this bizarre four-seater that sells enormously well. At practically the same moment the Soviet Union launched Sputnik, America launched this atrocity.

Well, that's ten of the wicked witches of the west, the other 90 at: http://www.edmunds.com/car-reviews/features/100-ugliest-cars-of-all-time.html

"Longstone Tyres recently has received serious comments and complaints regarding making use of vintage - sometimes risque - pictures. As Longstone values its customers high - no matter their gender - they decided to give in and had a chilly photo shoot yesterday morning hoping to address the various issues brought up." http://www.prewarcar.com/magazine/previous-features/one-for-the-ladies-019573.html#comments

Carl Elkins and his team were approached by Goodyear Dunlop to photographically realize key, underlying themes in the Goodyear product line, namely: strength, robustness and armor. The result is a strong fashion editorial, perfect branding example to market tires in a modern world.
