Would You Buy This ? (Photo Opinion Poll)
(AP)

Posted on 01/04/2002 8:36:43 PM PST by Dallas

A Honda Model X , a crossover vehicle that combines the best feautures of a truck
with the best of an SUV, is displayed Thursday, Jan. 3, 2002 at the Greater Los
Angeles Auto Show. The annual Greater Los Angeles Auto Show promises to be a
story of extremes when it opens to the public Saturday. The more than 1,000 new
vehicles on display at the Los Angeles Convention Center through Jan. 13 will run the
gamut in terms of size, price, technology and fuel efficiency.(AP Photo/Damian

I'm amazed. It took a lot of work to make a vehicle that ugly. They must have done some serious studies and engineering to combine so many aesthetically unappealing features in a single vehicle.

Gads. What the hell are they thinkin'? Looks like it should have a turret mounted on top of it. You might be able to pick up chicks, but only if they're tired of walking.

I might buy it for $7-8 thoudand, but most likely they'd be asking $25,000 for it. WAHAHAHA!

I saw something called a Dakkar at the Texas State Fair auto exibit a couple of years back, it was very nice. Looked like you could tour Africa in it, even down to the water cans tied to the back bumper, kewl looking.

I frankly liked the Aztek. I'm looking at this thing, and it looks like a mini Hummer mixed with something ugly. However, if it were given to me, I'd drive it. I like ugly vehicles like this. It says, I'm rich, and have absolutely no ideas about aesthetics.

Depends on how well it handles, gas mileage, and it's durability. If it's priced well and does extremely well then I'll consider it.

It looks like those ugly AG107 caps we had to wear in the army in the '50s and 60s. I think it's another smug oriental trick being played on Americans in order to make them look silly.

No way, I will stick with my pristine 1993 Firestorm Red Dodge Stealth Twin Turbo. 300 horses, 0 to 60 in 5.7 and 27 mpg on the highway at 75mph. The Stealth is art on wheels and a great car with a huge trunk. This monstrosity is just plain UGLY.
