32. 1978 FSO Polonez

The FSO Polonez is a Polish vehicle, that was considered by many to be one of the most undependable, unstylish cars ever made. The car’s name comes from the Polish dance, polonaise. The materials used to build the Polonez were cheap and resulted in the car being relatively unsafe. Jeremy Clarkson of BBC’s Top Gear had these choice words to say about the Polonez: Built by communists out of steel so thin you could use it as a neck curtain, it is as reliable and long lasting as a pensioner’s erection. I can only assume that here, [the stylist] was experimenting with trying to design a car after consuming four liters of absinthe.” Even though it was a rather terrible car, the Polonez was produced until 2002.
