There have been some pretty terrible cars throughout the history of the automobile. However, most of the biggest design mistakes ever made were during the eighties. Actually, much of the 1970s was also quite sketchy. If the design, engineering and manufacturing of automobiles had begun during the 1980s, nobody would mind.
The 1980s is a dark age for car design and we have traveled back to that sad time to gather the worst of the worst. So we’ve compiled a list of the worst cars of the eighties for your horror and pleasure:
Littering junkyards all over America is the Oldsmobile. The Chevy Cavalier is such a terrible car that we’ve included any relative of it here. And that’s the Oldsmobile Firenza. Except the Oldsmobile Firenza was more costly than the Cavalier.
But this car was never a good seller and the Cavalier was. The Firenza died a death, the Cavalier was more difficult to kill off.
