Yep, there are several "ugly" cars I would take under my wing because they are so ugly they are cute {this is not one of them... and if I had 1M I would pay off my mortgage, buy a 996 turbo, and put the rest in the bank }.

Like the Nissan Juke:



I even owned one of these (and loved it):



Local is selling a Valiant... I have no idea how I would pay for it or where I would find room for it... but I told her I was interested.

Copilot grabbed the gear handle vs. the flaps as they cleared the runway and it crunched onto its nose in front of the assembled dignitaries.)
