1955 Flajole Forerunner by Aya-Wavedancer 1955 Flajole Forerunner by Aya-Wavedancer
I blame :icon914four: for inflicting this one upon the viewers earlier than intended. Seems someone else found this grotesque buttnugget of a car at the AACA Museum. :)

An example of too much styling packed into one car.

Yes the retracting tinted sunroof, the coves/filets, and the headrest seats were years ahead of their time, but this car is just plain unattractive.

To make it worse, a perfectly good XK 120 chassis is underneath this.

It was originally Dark Green, Flajole's favorite color, and one of the later owners evidently changed it to the billious purple before it was donated to the Blackhawk Museum, who obviously didn't want this monstrosity, and it ended up on the auction block at The Quail in 2009, and somehow ended up at the AACA Museum in Hershey.

At least Flajole designed the Nash Metropolitan, I'll give him kudos for that very nice little car. :)

he had a nice concept with the back and wheel flares. he should have kept the flow of the fastback, kinda make it like the porsche "silver bullet"

Yes. The car's overall line's too broken up.

The Silver Bullet's a really monumental vehicle. Looks like a fascinating one-off.

Personally, I'd take a nice older Ruf myself, NATO Green, thank you. :)

Wow, I think this is the first car you're actually negative about.

I admit it has a somewhat bizarre shape, and the Oreo color scheme doesn't help. :P

I don't put up boring cars. I try to share really neat automotive icons! :)

I'm not the peeps putting up the Kias, Huyndais, Ford Fusions, and stuff you can see walking down your street or in the parking lot at Poulet Frit ala Kentucky!

There are some bad cars out there. The AMC Gremlin, Ford Pinto, the Prius, Many of the FIATs from the 70's, the Renault 5/Le Car, believe me, there are ones I loathe. :)

Some of those, I have an interest in, the ones that never came to the US. The rest, eh. :)
