3. Dodge Magnum
The model name, Magnum, might sound familiar since Dodge used it in a successful line of aggressive station wagons from 2005 to 2008. However, the Magnum dates as far back as 1978. The original Dodge Magnum was a luxury muscle car coupe Dodge produced for two years, in 1978 and 1979. For the time, it was a cool-looking coupe with all the right ingredients.
It had a rear-wheel drive, a long hood, a short deck, and a heart-thumping V8 in the front. Dodge added the biggest engine they could order, which was a 5.9-liter V8 with 195 HP. With its big weight, slow automatic transmission, and low power, the Magnum delivered pathetic performance numbers. Also, the high price didn’t help the sales, so Dodge discontinued the Magnum for the 1980 model year.
