Sorry but that doesn't make sense? This thread is for cars that people generally regard as crap yet one has some sort of attachment to. The 500 was not a bad car.
Well...let's think for a second. The 500 is an icon. It has created a cult and is highly regarded by automotive fans for its looks and the impact that it had on automotive culture.
However, that doesn't make it a good car. Even though it was light...it had from 13 to 21 hp...performance was lethargic.
It was tiny and realistically can only be used by two rather small people.
I've never driven a 500, but I've driven its successor - the 126. The cars are fairly similar. I can say that the 126 was a complete joke in every possible aspect.
Yes, the 500 might be a nice car to have if you are a collector...but to drive it? Hell, no! Thus - a bad car.
(I still love it though )
