i just noticed how Aspire-as in ford aspire rhymes with things. what's an Aspire without a/c? a perspire. what's an Aspire dead by the side of the road? an expire. that got me thinking. can you rhyme the names of bad cars to words in the english language?

People who ran afoul of the Aztec were sacrificed...

People who drive Aztecs have their dignity sacrificed.

What do you call 3 Pontiac Aztecs on the dealer's lot?

A lifetime supply.

I rented a Kia recently, and it wasn't a bad car. Would've been better with a real gearbox, though.

A friend once had an Aspire rental car while his was in the body shop.
He called the car the "Butt Sweat"

Mine is a 5spd Sephia. 166K and only minor problems like alt and plug wires.

The aesthetics of a train wreck. The antithesis of V-Tech. The poster child of real dreck.

That's all I can do without spending an hour with the thesaurus..

I used to think Aztec-like cars were cool. When I was 5. And I built them out of LEGOs.

Mercury Mystique has adopted the title of "mistake". A girlfriend had no objections when I replaced the V with a J on her Astro Van. Bright red Suburban with Razorback "bling" became the SubBubbaian.

I own 2 Aspires.
