What makes a car Fugly

I was thinking my view on how cars look is one off the main stream. Upon first glance of some cars (WRX SRT-4 RSX) I thought "What the hell are they thinking?" As I learn how fast these cars are the appearance starts to grow on me. Is this just me? I now think the SRT-4 looks good becasue it looks and is fast (or at least redefined what looks fast). Reguardless the Aztec will never look good to me. I do not car if they strap a V10 to it.

WTF?? You said essentially that those cars' appearance grew on you because they are fast cars, but then you say if an Aztek were fast it would still be ugly? If a car being fast means that the appearance grows on you then you don't get to make exceptions.

I don't see cars anymore. I see numbers. I don't know what is pretty or ugly. I think one rule that can be applied to most cars is the height of the vehicle. Most people think cars that aren't tall look better than bubbly cars like the Focus. Here's some short cars
RX7
Audi TT
Porsche boxster
Miata
Z3
Corvette
Camaro

Yeah, sometimes. But for example the MR2 in my sig is a very "short" car and plenty of people think it's "fugly." Some are very polarizing like that.

I think the MR2 is a nice looking car. I guess everyone has different tastes...

The one car I hate the most is a Chevy Cavalier, no matter what they do to them it is still ugly and now they think changing the name to Cobalt will make it better, sorry but no!!!
