Wretched Retro

The Chrysler PT Cruiser is (IMHO) a stylish car inspired by the era of streamlining, but not slavishly imitative of it. It proved insanely popular, and continues to be so.

Chevrolet, apparently, figured that if Chrysler could do it, so could they, and they created a vehicle reminiscent of the old bulbous Chevrolet pickup trucks. The result is the Chevrolet SSR, and it is flat out ugly as sin. Sorry, but it just doesn't work.
