My Take on The 50 Worst Cars of All Time

The Freakonomics blog had an interesting post on the 50 worst cars of all time:

In talking with an auto executive a few years back, I got some insight into how disasters like this happen. I asked this auto executive how his company decided between the 10 or 15 concept cars that the design teams proposed.

His answer: The five most senior executives at the company looked over the possible vehicles and picked the ones they liked best!

That's a scary bit of information.

The full list - from time magazine - includes exactly zero cars that I've ever owned. Hah.
