I saw one of these:



the other day.

It's not pretty, but what really made it an experience was what was written across the back bumper ....

Electric cars are all innately beautiful. When we have more than a few to choose from then I will modify my opinion.

Someone in Boulder bought one. Presumably with money they actually earned. In an area that had a Tesla dealer up until a year or so ago, I can't fathom why. It's just so awful.

That Mitsubishi is not electric. Many of that kind in Japan.

I like it, but I've always liked quirky cars.

And there's a difference between quirky (like this), functional (like the Element), and ugly (like the Pontiac Aztek).

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. To each his own.

It's not my idea of beautiful or pretty, maybe it's cute.

But that's not at all what I'd call ugly.

The Aztek. I thought that was ugly.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

It doesn't strike my aesthetic tastes as ugly. I'm not sure I'm all that keen on having the resting position of the passenger-side windshield wiper be "upright" like that, though. I suppose I'd get used to it in time.

The one I saw had MiEV on the side, which it said stood for "Mitsubishi innovative Electric Vehicle", so I do believe the one I saw was electric.

Any company that would make a vehicle as ugly as the Aztek deserves to go out of business/
