Default Ugly Cars Looking Good

The cheap four doors thread turned out to be awesome and piqued my interest, and since you guys know so much about weird and forgotten platforms I have a request.

I would like to see cars normally considered ugly, weird or otherwise forgotten looking awesome, through some type of modification, maybe just wheels and a drop or major body mods.

1st rule: No miatas. Those are already all over the site.

Saab 9000 is not an ugly car. The spirit of this thread is being lost.

Yes it is. Its just so ugly its cool.

There are very few genuinely pretty cars, that remain pretty forever. Everything else gets ugly eventually.

You're kidding, right? Saab means ugly in Swedish.

No car that was designed by Giorgetto Giugiaro is eligible for this thread.
