My parents made the mistake of buying a '73 AMC Hornet to replace the '66 Ford Country Sedan that had seen enough of 5 boys. The Hornet was the worst new car we ever owned. Had the build quality of something assembled in prison. It was embarrassing to be in. Luckily it didn't last near as long as the Ford. I think my mom traded it in on a Rabbit, which was probably the second worst new car that we owned....

An interesting side note though on the Hornet/Gremlin design, AMC won an SAE design award for the outside door handles on those models. The first in the industry to be flush with the body of the car (I think). Lotus bought the rights to use them on their cars.

I guess you can polish a turd...
