37. 1981 DeLorean DMC-12

The DeLorean may be an iconic car due to its role in the Back to the Future films, but as a real world car the DeLorean was nowhere near as cool as its time traveling counterpart. The brainchild of John Z. DeLorean, the first DeLoreans were produced in a factory in Northern Ireland. The car was heavy, under powered and over priced. The little 2.8 liter Peugeot V-6 under the hood was ill-equipped to move the massive stainless steel monster. Without some modifications, it’s questionable if the DeLorean could actually get up to 88 mph. The one thing the DeLorean had going for it was that it was a cool looking car, especially the doors. The only problem with the gullwing style doors was that once the struts wore out, you needed to have plenty of arm strength to open and close them. Dropping one of those steel doors on your leg would not feel good.
