Over a decade ago, Toyota
revolutionized the American luxury car world with the introduction of the Lexus line. In the early 90s, the economy was booming and luxury cars were once again a hit. Toyota succeeded with the Lexus, and it remains to this day the top selling luxury car in the United States.
Now, comes a new trend. A trend which was spawned from the coke-snorting habits of Generation X
. It is the ugly car trend.
Each big company has it's own hideous car. The infamous Honda
Element (wannabe hummer), the Volkswagen Golf (Ricer
s seem to be all over this one now), the Pontiac Aztek (Anyone who pays money for that needs to have their heart ripped out on an altar, Aztec style), the PT Cruiser (You'll cruise right by any hopes of getting poontang
in that one), and last and certainly least, the Chevy Avalanche (If you get in a collision, the rubber will make the other car bounce off you).
Toyota once again plans to dominate a rising line of cars with the ugly Scion. This includes the shoebox on wheels, and the wannabe Impala.
I had a Scion infront of me. A Pontiac Aztek to my right. A PT Cruiser to my left. And a Honda Element behind me. If I had one, I'd set off my car bomb and sacrifice my life to remove these hideous cars from the road.
