50. 1997 Plymouth Prowler

In the late 90’s Chrysler engineers were given free reign to design whatever they wanted in a “hod rod” or “sportster” type vehicle. The result was a design from Thomas C. Gale, the Plymouth Prowler. The Plymouth Prowler looked like a hod rod from the 30’s, only it didn’t have a hot rod engine under the hood. Cutting corners and pinching pennies, Chrysler plopped a 3.5 liter V-6 under the hood of the Prowler, giving it a less than impressive 250 horsepower. The open wheel front end and hot rod fuselage looked nice, but the lack of power made the Prowler an unappealing dud. To make matters worse, the Prowler was cursed with an automatic transmission, so you couldn’t even drive the vehicle like the speedster it appears to be.
