World's Worst Car Book My title may not be entirely true, but this book is very poorly written. The only reason I am writing this review is to prevent anyone else from investing in this poor excuse for a book.Initially I was intrigued by the concept of this book (albeit, it's been done before). Going in, I knew this book would be nothing more than an entertaining coffee table book at best. However, this book fails to be worthy of any coffee table.Although far from an expert on European cars, I consider myself a American automobile historian. The "facts" on many of the American models included in the book, are inaccurate, poorly researched and . The World's Most Ignorant & Unimaginative Automotive Author N. Talbot This book is crap on so many levelsso, I'll just point out a couple that irk me.There are literally thousands of hilariously awful cars that have been produced in the last century. We're talking stunningly bad - as in they almost seemed purposely designed to be laughed at. Somehow, with all of the many options available, the author (whom clearly knows nothing about cars) chooses cars that are neither funny or could ever be considered as a "world's worst." One remarkable choice is the Lexus SC430, which gains its spot because it "doesn't handle as well as its European rivals" (this certainly isn't a funny reason to add th. Coffee Table Car book There's mountains of books out there for great cars. There's whole libraries devoted to them but what happens to those stinkers that fail miserable, have poor performance, or are just dang ugly. Craig Cheetham has put forth this book listing roughly 150 of what he deems are some of the worst cars in the world. It's easy to go through and makes for an entertaining coffee table book. Each entry gives the basic stats during production and then paraphrases why it is included in this tome. There's a wide spread of vehicles from numerous countries. Craig is very careful to point out, these are only HIS opinions based on owners

Or in some cases, all of the above. North America's embarrassments include the notorious Ford Edsel, the malfunctioning Chrysler TV Maserati collaboration and the grand folly of the Tucker Torpedo. Globally, such horrors as the rapidly rusting Alfa Romeo Alfasud, the flimsy Lada Samara, and the plain ugly Subaru SVX all claim their place on the world's worst cars list. Most manufacturers have made some great cars, but all manufacturers have made some unquestionable disasters. Cars that were either terrible designs, badly engineered, poorly manufactured, or misjudged the market. So what went wrong? How did these cars ever get off the drawing board, let alone into the showroom? And how many people bought them? The World's Worst Cars takes a detailed look at 150 of these motoring mistakes, both old and new and from around the world. From Britain there's the simply leaky Morris Marina, the pop-up headlights that didn't pup up on the Lotus Elite and the "What were they thinking of?" three wheeled, orange fibreglass Bug Bond. With an annotated, full-page photograph for each car, detailed technical specifications, archive images and text on every vehicle's failure, this book is a celebration of the world's worst automobiles in all their flawed glory
