Time magazine’s list of the 50 Worst Inventions includes both the Ford Pinto and the Pontiac Aztek.

Time cites the Pinto’s tendency to explode as reason to make it onto the shameful list.

As for the Pontiac Aztek, it wasn’t a safety issue that put it on the list. Time calls the Aztek “quite possibly the ugliest vehicle on the planet.”

What do you think? Do these two vehicles belong on the list of the 50 worst inventions, alongside agent orange, asbestos, and Crocs? Surely, there has to be a vehicle uglier than the Aztek.
