About two years ago, we asked you which was the worst model year in automotive history for our Question Of The Day. You had many great suggestions, and while we originally went for 1980, our readers declared 1981 as the worst year ever to buy a new car. Come on, we knew all along that the winner can only come from the eighties!

And yes, 1981 unleashed upon us the Triumph Acclaim, the Mercury LN7, the Cadillac Fleetwood V-8-6-4 or the Maserati Biturbo, but it also gave us the DeLorean DMC-12...


So what would you take from 1981 besides Jessica Alba?
