1951 Studebaker Champion Woodie
There's no accounting for some people's taste. This vile 1951 Studebaker Champion-based custom took our breath away for all the wrong reasons. While the standard car was never the best looking thing, it wasn't offensive. But this superbly built, partially wood-clad - and it's real wood, not paint - monstrosity stood out as one of the ugliest cars on display this year.
The builder, who shall remain nameless, not only added the wood but also a rear hatch. And, to complete the insult to the original car, he threw away the original engine and replaced it with the V8 lump from a FordEdsel, one of the world's biggest car fails of all time. Ugh.
