Panicked by a flood of mid-size Japanese cars entering the American market, General Motors rushed its Chevy Vega into production. The result? Perhaps the worst car GM ever built. The Vega was priced right and sold well at first, but numerous issues forced the model’s reputation into a nosedive. The car ran so hot, it caused everything under the hood to warp and crack. Engines would burn oil or catch fire, and the hood would even come through the windshield during collisions. On top of everything else, the Vega’s body rusted so badly that entire bumpers would wither away during car washes.
