What were they thinking?!

As I am keenly aware of all moving vehicles these days in anticipation of our car (I swear, it feels like we adopted a kid and are waiting for him to arrive), I notice not only the car we did buy, but all the ones we didn't.

One in particular, I'll have to take a picture and post it, is the ugliest car I think I've ever seen. It's like a little armored truck but in a wide variety of obnoxious colors. The back end, which has no windows, is shaped like a box. Yet, this car is quite popular. I had been justifying our choice of the Hyundai Matrix with the phrase, "Hey, 100,000 Singaporeans can't be wrong!" because there are so many out there. My thought with this other car is, "Maybe 100,000 Singaporeans are insane," because it seems there are an equal number of these.

Is there a car like this in the states right now that defies logic? I was never a big fan of the PT Crusier when it came out a few years ago in the states. It looked like something out of Dick Tracy, the cartoon version. There's no accounting for some peoples' taste.
