On the 50th anniversary of the Ford Edsel, TIME and Dan Neil, Pulitzer
Prize-winning automotive critic and syndicated columnist for the Los Angeles Times, look at the greatest lemons of the automotive industry.
Time takes on automobiles from every era, including a horseless buggy with a fake horse attached to its front and everybody’s favorite lemon, the Etsel. Did you know they made a car that tried to swim, a " vehicle that promised to revolutionize drowning"? Me either, which is why I find this list to be such fun. And I’m not even that big on cars. They even dog on the De Lorean–Doc Brown would not be pleased. They redeem themselves by calling out the hideous Hummer H2. Go see which other rides got the big snub.
