24: Chevrolet Monte Carlo Z34
Released during the 1990s renaissance of bubble-backed cars, this generation of the Monte Carlo is perhaps mocked the most. Dubbed the “Lumina Coupe” in some circles, this generation was nothing more than a two-door Chevy Lumina. Lacking a V8 engine or any good performance, the Monte Carlo didn’t exactly have any laurels to fall back on. The design wasn’t innovative by any stretch of the imagination.
Consumers were not persuaded by the cheap interior materials or the lack of performance. This was not the Monte Carlo of yesteryear. After such a storied history of the brand, it was sad to see the Monte Carlo reduced to this. But the brand was also beginning to shift all of its focus to full-size SUV models because passenger cars were simply unprofitable.
