Cars have personality, that goes without saying. Some have the personality of fun, like the Beetle we just showed you in the video made by Holley earlier today. Some have a very serious personality like, say, a BMW M3. That’s a car that is pretty well buttoned down and generally means business. How about cars that are evil, mean, and down right sinister? What’s the most sinister looking car of all time?
For our money, the 1959 Buick Electras and LeSabres have this title locked down pretty well. The kicked up front fenders and corresponding headlights give the impression that this is car is really pissed at something. Adding in the huge size and pointed rear fenders, it oozes attitude and seems to snarl at everything else on the road. Sure, they were big cruisers that floated down the road and carried upwardly mobile families down the country’s freshly built highways and byways, but looking at them in today’s context, they’re meanies! Black 1968 Chargers also seem to give off a slightly menacing vibe along with requisite black Lincolns and Cadillacs that were favored by folks employed in business that required corpse transport to marshes, bridge caissons, and other quiet places. Are we going to elaborate on that? Fuggetaboutit!
