car and driver’s weekly soap opera explores new emotional depths as the window shopping crew reaches into its traumatized youth to recall the utter crap our families once drove. join us in a terrifying journey into the abyss of shoddy engineering, horrifying quality and really stupid decision making. these are… the worst cars of our lives.
no mention is made of any vehicular hideousness currently resident in our garages. that will be another episode. so what nightmares did we recall? did someone in this crew actually own a chevrolet vega? yes. yes, he did. another panelist recalled his father’s nine-month sojourn with an '81 oldsmobile toronado powered by the infamous diesel v-8 that that gm division foisted upon the world in the late 1970s and early 1980s.
another burned his thighs on the hot vinyl of a chevrolet citation. while one felt carroll shelby had betrayed his kin by getting involved with a lousy front-drive dodge. finally, well, the youngest panelist had a pretty good life that included (gasp!) having to manually wind up the windows in a toyota corolla ce! can you imagine how that has scarred his psyche and burdened soul? yeah, that’s right. it’s lunacy.
