I really like the Prowler, but I don't think they put a worthy of enough motor in it. Not that I ever got to ride in one, but I thought they were cool looking. It was a big leap for plymouth to produce such a car.

Did anyone hear of the 1982 Camaro Iron Duke that came out during the 1980s fuel crisis?

It was a real slug! It only had a 90 hp motor.

Not sure WHO or HOW they came up with that list.
I would have included both the Ford Pinto (aka slow moving microwave) and the 1978 MG Midget.
I always wanted a Midget as a kid and bought a new one in 1978 - my second new car - and second biggest mistake. I kept it for 9 months - the first six chasing carburetor issues (Weber side-drafts), and the last three waiting for the 3-door Mustang Turbo I ordered to replace it. That was the last British car I ever bought.

I think if you all read the complete list, you'll find every car you've asked about -- with the exception of the Vega. I don't recall it being there. Actually, it's an amusing article to read. Whoever wrote it had several of the cars on it and points out his personal observations as to why they were terrible.

That list was compiled by Dan Neil..... he's a bleeding heart liberal loon with ZERO objectivity.... toilet paper serves a much higher purpose than anything written by him!
