OK, i'm sure this has been done before, but i'm bored so here goes.

Worse, most offensive, hideously, annoying cars of all time people. I'll start off with my personal nemesis's;

The Mini Metro / Rover 100 because its crap,
The Nissan Micra for being driven consistently 20mph under the limit,
The Fiat Multipla for being the ugliest car ever made,
Anything ever made by Citroen, especially the Saxo.
The Lotus Esprit, (the largest financial black hole next to the missus ;) ;) )

yep, bored too so...

1. Volvos - anyone who rides a bike will agree with this one.
2. All post mk1 Golfs - all driven by knobs.
3. Volvos, yep, I really don't like them
4. All BMWs, see comment 2.
5. American cars - with the obvious exceptions :)
6. Cars driven by Nurses, you know metros, micras, clios et al
7. TDi vehicles - too many buggers who think they can drive "fast" 'cos their fuel is cheap.

Yep, rant done.

Oh, Grease Monkey - you can't possibly include the DS in your Citroen list - style like that never dies. :p

Sorry Chris & Mike - obviously touched a Volvo nerve there! I think they stopped being cool after the Amazon though. Oh, but you have to admit they led the way in the insane "I'm safe - sod you" car culture that we have now, and yes I'm glad safe cars save lifes too.

I still potter around in my non-GTi Mk1 thank you very much!

Driven lots of beemers,never owned one, just don't like them.

Mike, as for you comment on bikes, you know you're talking tosh!!

:p

:eek: That must of hurt. You weren't parking inside Worthging B&Q at the time were you? Nice repair job, money & time well spent me thinks. Of course, all car prejudices are invalid if the car in question is well loved by the owner ;)

How could you have missed out:
DAF 66 variomatic. drivetrain consists of 2 rubber bands, gears are forward & reverse, same speed in both!
Austin Allegro Vanden Plas. Bleaugh....what were they thinking?
Anything with a name like Twingo or Berlingo
Anything driven by anyone who is as aware of their surroundings as a blind dog in a box on a foggy night
Sorry, you can`t have ALL Citroens..... the SM was a Classic.
Waxers cars........get out there and DRIVE!

This is by no means a comprehensive list of my dislikes! :p

Excuse me but there 'aint no accounting for taste.......Got to be one of the few diesel cars that WRX Impretza's cant keep up with and no, I 'aint talking about the Cobra (obviously)........Rob :D

Grease Monkey
29-06-04, 06:59 AM
Yup, sorry, ALL citroens have to go into the vehicular room 101.
Just try to think about ONE good citroen....

2cv, ax, bx, cx, xantia, xenon, xylophone, xenophobe, nope they're all in

It was only the GTA V6 that stopped all Renaults going in, and the NSX that stopped all Nissans going in

And yes, i'll give you the Allegro, and also the old Princess, what were they thinking?

Grease Monkey
29-06-04, 07:02 AM
Rather disconcerting quite how many Volvos there are owned by Cobra owners...

Oops clearly i meant, 300ZX, since the NSX is a Honda. D'oh

Sticking to my guns here, the Citroen DS (Goddess) can't be included!!! It's just too cool.

29-06-04, 07:53 AM
I think the Volvo/Cobra thing is a Jeckyll & Hyde syndrome!
I`m standing firm on the Citroens though, maninly coz of the SM(Maserati V6!!!) I have had 7 CX`s..... all 2.4 Gti`s hell of a car!

Modern Volvo Estate = Unmarked motorway cop car (well usually) :eek: :eek:

Should have expected it from Paul

amazing what can be done with a box of crayons and a little imagination..

Would you like to come to Avon & Somerset and paint all of theirs ?

Miket
29-06-04, 04:30 PM
Thought this might be better for Paul, as he like pimp motors. ;)

Yes I am bored. :(

Chris,
You can't fool us.....turning down the contrast on the photo doesn't constitute a repair :)

What's wrong with Golfs and BMWs.:eek:

I must need some serious style councelling!!!!!!

I told you not to post those pictures of your fleet, everybody will think your making to much money. ;)

Appears you can't express an opinion without upsetting someone :D

Both nice and clean though ;)

I think the definition of an un cool car is anything with "Viper stripes".................................................. ...............That's kid speak for Cobra stripes when stuck on a Saxo.

RichardG
29-06-04, 09:28 PM
Wonder how long its going to be before Saxos start having "Burberry stripes" to match the bloody silly baseball caps?

gwak76
29-06-04, 11:24 PM
Dont worry about the Saxo, look at the new Mini, Yuck:eek:

Oh! my God, what ever next?

You'd think they would concentrate on reliability before silly paint jobs. :mad:

A friend of mine had a lucky escape a couple of days ago when his new-ish Mini Cooper experienced a sudden and total failure of the power steering system whilst hacking along the motorway. :eek:
If he'd have been going round a tight bend he could have been killed. :mad:

Luckily he managed to control it and keep it out of the barrier. :)

BMW have just fiitted a new rack, PAS pump the lot.

RichardG
30-06-04, 01:26 PM
Ah, but EVERONE knows that BMW make reliable cars, its an established fact :) Suckering people into thinking they make funky & cute cars attracts even more people to the brand. Oh, just in case anyone wonders, this isn't an anti German thing either, Mercs are cool - after all, all those taxi drivers can't be wrong :p

Has no-one mentioned the Fiat Multiplia yet? The ugliest creation since.... um... since...

It's just the ugliest creation
