The readers of Britain's Telegraph decided that the Pontiac Aztek was the king of their 100 Ugliest Cars Of All Time list, but James May disagrees. In fact, his pick for the Ugliest Car Ever wasn't even on the list! Meet the 1949 Triumph Mayflower, about which Mr. May states: "Its details are ugly, its overall proportions are ugly, its very concept - as a car to appeal to Americans who believed they were directly descended from the Pilgrim Fathers - makes one shudder."
