1978 Mercury Zephyr

The word "zephyr" derives from Zephyrus, a character in Greek mythology who brought the soft summer breeze. In the real world, it was an ugly car that blighted U.S. freeways during four decades ago.

"The 1970s were a disappointing decade for U.S. cars in general, and the Mercury Zephyr is a perfect example why," Brauer said. "The bizarre roofline, upright grille and slanted taillights comprised a mishmash of bad styling cues."
