The 50 worst cars of all time

I've got to say that some of the decisions that went into making this list are a little bizarre. In particular a cannot fathom putting the Lotus Elite on the list. It won at Le Mans six times! Are they high? Ok, so it had some faults as a production car...did I mention it won at Le Mans six times?

The rationale for placing the Ford Model T on the list is even worse. Basically they blame it for allowing ordinary Americans the privilege of owning cars. I guess it's ok for rich folks to tool around in a Rolls Royce but god forbid the proles be allowed to do so. Every now and then I forget why I stopped reading TIME, then I read an issue and I remember.

Amazingly, none of the cars I've owned are on the list.
