VW Beetle and the Mercury Cougar

If you’re like me it’s probably been awhile since you gave much thought to how great these little cars are. This sweet, red convertible is a bright spot on my walk to the subway each morning.

Sadly, I also have to pass this grotesque specimen. This is like the automotive equivalent of acid wash, high-waisted jeans.

  1. A Mercury Cougar from any year of the 1980's can only be described as atrocious tank. Not only are they hideous to look at, my white 1988 Cougar XR7 I drove in high school (circa 2001-2002) would actually spin anywhere from 180 degrees to 360 degrees if the roads were damp when I turned. Piece of sh*t. Thank you for calling attention to the craptasticness of the Mercury Cougar, I stand in full agreement to you.
