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.
