Hooniverse Asks: What's your favorite "ugly" car or truck?

The McLaren Senna is a tremendous machine. It’s exceedingly ugly and technically  brilliant. As Jalopnik’s Michael Ballaban points out, a recent MSO-commissioned Senna finished with a unique white and blue paint scheme that on its own would be considered ugly actually helps “pretty the car up” a bit.
There are a number of vehicles that most would consider “ugly”. Yet those vehicles also find a place in the hearts of people who cherish them. The Senna isn’t a personal example, but one that sits atop my morning automotive reading. It caught my eye with it’s Bugatti Veyron L’Or Blanc-esque tribute livery(even though it’s not being referenced by McLaren as such).
What vehicle do you love that most would consider… a bit ungainly?

      That isn’t a Kia, that’s a Scion/Toyota BB, the Kia that’s a bit like that, is the Kia Soul. 😎

    I know it is fantastically bad but the Jeep Compass Rallye for a few years back.

      It’s not the only ugly Packard. There were also the “Pregnant Elephant” ’48-’50 models. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/793c0143a68a0be97a4233caca191156ed82a612fc23426e747865af92c33cb4.jpg

        I always thought those were gorgeous.

        I see the resemblance. The Daimler was designed ugly from a clean sheet of paper, The Hawk added a gaping maw and tail feathers to a beautiful set of wheels…..
