11. AMC Hornet
AMC was a brand that was missing its mark during the ’70s. It didn’t seem that any of the company’s models were becoming popular with consumers. Overall, the Hornet was a car that had a great concept, but it failed to deliver in the final stages of the design.
The Hornet could have been a great car, but its reliability was questionable at best. More drivers were left on the side of the road than AMC wanted to admit. The Hornet is a piece of automotive history, but not in the way you’d expect. This is a piece of the ’70s worth forgetting about.
