The bathtub-like AMC Pacer. The operationally challenged Yugo GV. The supremely unsavory Chrysler TC by Maserati. These wheeled nightmares and many more are gleefully trashed by author Eric Peters. If the eyesores like the decal powered 1978 Ford Mustang II King Cobra don't make you howl, well, consider this the used car buying guide of your dreams. - "Fright Club" Motor Trend, November 2004Automakers have foisted plenty of bad and even laughable cars upon an unsuspecting public over the years. Millions of people have been duped into buying mistakes-on-wheels, while millions more have been subjected to these cars after the new-car smell is gone, revealing only vehicular inadequacy.Automotive Atrocities: The Cars We Love to Hate is a truly distasteful collection of fake muscle cars, clown-car compacts, faux "luxury" cars, sales disasters, and other truly ugly and ill-conceived four-wheeled follies. Written for anyone who either unwisely decided or was forced against their will to drive an automotive atrocity, this book gives the motoring public the last laugh as everyone's least-favorite cars are skewered in book form for the first time.
