What were some of the worst GM models?
OK, I love GM trucks and cars but I was talking to a guy at work and we started naming some bad GM models and bad GM designs. It actually was interesting to try and name some of the, dare I say lame stuff they turned out over history.
I'll start this off with my top pick the "Cadillac Cimarron" this first attempt at an intro Cadillac is kind of like the alder brother to the Catera. Unfortunately it was nothing more than a rebadged Chevy Cavalier. It was kind of an embarrassing effort and was flimsy. In 1982 when it was introduced it had a 1.8 liter engine that barely got out of its own way. The car got a little better by its last year in 1988 but was still a joke in quality and performance, GM should have rethought the car back in 82'.

The Vega was great! Great for dropping a 383 and a powerglide into. My brother had one that we used to raise hell in. Won a lot of money with that 10 second jalopy.There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:

As far a sucky styling the current Buick Park Avenue is near the top of my list. I just imagine the conversation in the boardroom. Let's go retro. Bring back the gun ports. My dad drove a 55 Special, that was a Buick.

Throw away car
The Vega was one of those throw away cars like the Pinto! that being said, I never had one but I rode in my share and helped modify a few into 8 & 10 second cars. I think if you were to get the facts on the Vega from GM you would find that it was a very profitable venture. I personally would love to have one in mint condition to give my son to modify. I found one online once, Mint, like 15000 miles on it for like $4000.00. I should have bought it!
