Historic Automotive Flops

in: hosted by Rebecca Brayton

Historic Automotive Flops The financial security of many automakers depends on good car design choices, both inside and out. Ford, for example, made two terrible choices with their Pinto: designing a malfunctioning car in the first place, and deciding not to spend money to fix the car’s problem. The American Motors Corporation had a history of ugly cars, with their Gremlin often named the ugliest car ever made. Finally, the beloved DMC-12 might not be the rarity it is today if not for the struggles of John Z. Delorean. In this video, WatchMojo.com takes a look at some interesting design choices made by carmakers over the years.
