'AOL' Worst Cars FFS????

AOL (whoever the Hell THEY are?) have just listed the Strada as one of the top 20 worst cars of the 1970's and the Regata as one of the top 20 worst cars of the 1980s.

I personally think they are being unfair and the guy who writes this stuff probably doesn't have a drivers license? I have been a Strada owner and am still on the lookout for a Regata Weekend.

I try not to read these crappy tables - but come on! The Strada pictured is clearly a mk2 and possibly a 105 or a 130 - the Regata is in the top four of it's table, because of crappy dealers? WTF? Comments?

Well they must be desparate.

Why would AOL, who need to make money (if they are not already bust), ever run an article on 70's worst cars when such an article will have such a narrow interest.

Good luck to them.

Meanwhile I suggest nobody follows the link as that will only give AOL some additional income.

Let them rot.........

AOL - America Online, but they operate around the world, they're an internet service provider, so they don't specialise in cars! And yes, in my opinion AOL does not provide a very good internet service in the UK.

Pointless article really. Wouldn't it be better to run an article about crap current cars so you could avoid buying a pile of tat.

I donít like these articles. The biggest effort put in by its creator was probably using google to find the images.

Who listens to them idiots anyway they can't even do their job as an ISP properly so can't really expect their journalists to know anything about cars.
