On its worst day the Gremlin never looked as bad as the Aztek. But what's this got to do with bikes?
I thougt it was more like a 4wd Pacer... (nm)mr tornado head

The worlds ugliest SUV and now the worlds ugliest truck! I'm afraid to ask whats next. What are they smoking at GM? They've been watching too many old Godzilla movies.
Avalanche - looks like an oversize Tonka toy. nmE3

You remember the B-210 - It came complete with "rocket boy meets Rodan" wheel covers. Other equally wonderful designs: AMC Pacer; that weird underpowered convertible Mercury "sports car" (I have erased the name forever from my mind); the Bricklin; Ford Escort EXP; etc. No self respecting bicyclist would be caught dead with a bike on the back of any of these...
Ha, ha, ha..... I remember that ugly thingpowerglide

The b-210 was uglier than my old roommates girlfriend. Bugeyed like a '62 Plymouth, another candidate for the hall of shame.

I had a rough day today. I saw a B-210 and a Pinto. Every time I convince myself that I've seen the last operational Pinto on the road, another one rears its ugly grill. The federal government should offer an exchange program under which a Pinto can be trade in for a 12-pack of Meister-Brau.

That car is butt-hole ugly. The team that came up with it should be taken out in a field and shot. I'm in the habit of taking a close look at the driver (trying to see if there's some sort of pattern) and then laughing.

Seriously it would be harmful to civilization to let those designers breed. Who let that design get out the door over there in Motown?

I look at the drivers also. I havent had a good visual yet as Ive only seen a few and its on the highway. I too, would like to know what kind of person it takes to appreciate that wacky mobile.

Funny...I look at Aztek drivers too to see if they appear normal. I saw a guy on a Softride this morning and although it isn't quite in the same class, I had sort of the same reaction to it as I do to an Aztek.

Don't forget the drag version - the Buick Rendevous - an Aztek in a dress...

I seem to remember reading that the Aztec is already due for cancellation. It just never caught on. Like most people, I think it's butt-ugly, but at least I applaud Pontiac for trying to create some utility on something other than an SUV platform.

I also read Pontiac has a replacement vehicle for the Aztec that's a lot better looking...

Let's face it, Daimler-Chrysler does not yet realize what replacing the Cherokee with that "vehicle" is going to do to them.

As far as looks go, the Liberty is a lot better looking than the Aztek and it is a heck of a lot better off-road than the wannabe 4xPoor that the Aztek wants to be.
