McKeel Hagerty, CEO of the company, ordered up the survey after noticing that several of what he calls "nerd cars" were increasing in value. He says he was surprised when the Pacer-a notorious dud from the days of disco-topped the list. Hagerty bought himself a dark green 1976 Pacer three years ago for $2,300. "If anyone thinks I'm picking on Pacer owners, guess what-I am one," he says.
Badly designed is one thing, but "ugly" is in the eye of the beholder. A few picks, including the Ford Pinto and Chevy Chevette have lots of vintage-flair camp value. This is the main reason why Hagerty ordered the survey, "after noticing that several of what he calls 'nerd cars' were increasing in value." However, we must agree that #4, the Pontiac Aztek, is one hell of a fugly eyesore on wheels. Woof.
Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
