What's the worst car you ever owned (or rode in)?

My dad had some pretty bad ones when I was a kid, like a 1984 Pontiac 6000 and a 1989 Ford Escort.

A very well used 1959 Vauxhall Victor that my dad got very cheap and we used as a "go fishing car" and hauled the boat with it.

The boat motor ran better and was more reliable!

Dad had a 1950 chevy one ton truck with no brakes, no signal lights, no windshield wipers, no mirrors and a large hole in the floor on the passenger side. He drove that old beast down the highway every time he went to town. I learned how to drive in it. Learned how to double clutch and all.

[@10033,hippyjoe1955] My dad's Pontiac 6000 had no gauges, no dome light, no radio, and sounded like it had no muffler. It quit on him one day and he just abandoned it, lol.

[@940086,Dan439] Yeah the old chevy never had a radio and its muffler leaked like a sieve. You had to drive with the windows down or the fumes coming up through the floorboard would gas you. Made for some very cold drives in the winter time when we had to go 50 miles to get a load of coal every few months.

1986-1989 Hyundai Excel Sedan. Shook life a leaf while at a stop light lol. The steering wheel was vibrating. You had to warm it up forever.

[@23013,Mguinm] Kind of makes me think of the one in the movie, [i]Boyz n the Hood[/i].

The worst car (by far) that I ever had was a 1972 Volkswagen Type3.
It was my first car, and I definitely had better cars after that.
My parents worst car was an Audi 100 (I don’t remember the year).

We had 2 German cars, and they were both worse than any of the American, Japanese, Swedish and Korean cars we’ve had over the years.

It was a 2008 Toyota sedan type. Rental car, but I swear that thing was built cheapy. Felt like you'd tear off the door if you opened it too fast (and it was new at the time.)

Owned? A shitty white Trans Am.

Rode in? A shitty filthy cockroach infested sedan.

My first car was a 1983 Ford Thunderbird... that piece overheated before you even started it

Probably my 1967 Ford Mustang. It wasn't great when I got it and it went downhill from there.
