    Some of the cars are "ugly" out of necessity, so to say.

    Before the development of the V (opposing cylinders on each side of the engine), the cylinders were in a straight line. Hence some old rare cars with large engines look pretty strange.

    Sometime aerodynamics win out over aesthetics. Many of the super exotic sports cars are most likely uncomfortable, and not much fun to drive unless you're on a suitable racetrack.

    Of course some designs don't age well.

    I meant the newer cars. I like the long hood design of the classic straight eight Duesenbergs and 1930s Buicks. The new Honda Civics look like they were styled by a bunch of dyslexic twelve-year olds with a box of crayons.
