Another was a Toyota Corolla, but it wasn't the car so much as I hated how low it sat. I couldn't even see muhc over the steering wheel to see past the hood, and I'm only 5' 4-1/2" which is pretty average for a woman since 5'5" is average here in America. And it was a baby poop brownish taupe...barf.

My worse was a piss yellow 1976 Pontiac Sunbird, which was a basically a Chevy Vega with a nicer trim. It was a truly and awful car, I suffered with my last year in college and my first year or so out of school, it was hands down the worse car I ever owned. My first car was a sweet 57 Chevy Impala and I swear it was more reliable, more comfortable, and certainly more powerful than the Sunbird despite being 20 years older. The Sunbird soured me on American vehicles probably for life.
