I guess I had 2 cars on the list other than the X. I had a 1980 & a 1978 Pinto. I rolled the 1980 the first month I owned it. I hydroplaned on water standing in the road, did a 180, went backwards over a 10' bank, landing in chest deep water. I was fine but my 25 8-track tapes did not survive. I actually got more money out of the insurance than I paid for it, then I bought the 1978. I finally sold the 1978 pinto in 1988 for $250.00 with 132,000 miles on it. It was the best car I ever owned up to that point. It was white with an orange interior, and I do mean orange. The large back glass hatch was like a moon roof when I laid the back seat down so I could get a girl back there to "make out" with. One time my mom ask how all the foot and hand prints got on the back glass. When I worked for the state of W.V. I got a Chevette to drive. It would roar as loud as it could as I floored it to get on the Interstate, when I would go to merge into traffic I would be doing about 45 mph tops. I remember the steering wheel not being centered with the drivers seat. That list brought back alot of memories.
None on the list for me. Almost though, except my Explorer is a '94.
I didn't read about too many of the cars but it really seems like this guy is full of crap. Calling the Explorer one of the worst cars ever made because it started the gas guzzling SUV craze? Seriously? That makes it a bad vehicle?
And the Model T? "Blacksmithed panels and crude insruments". Somebody should remind this guy that it was made in 1909. WTF does he expect? Maybe the 1909 Toyota or Honda had streamlined panels that weren't blacksmithed along with a digital gauge cluster
And the Ex because it was big, could tow, and could seat a couple families?
Anyhow, it just seems like he knows alot about saving the planet and not so much about vehicles. My $0.02
I've got a 2002 Ranger, a 1991 F150, a 2001 Taurus Wagon, a 2003 F250, and a 2005 Caravan sittin in my driveway....(ya gotta excuse the darn van...the Taurus wouldn't hold three kids carseats in the back seat and there was no Ford minivan on the lots) so Ford must be doin' something right!
