Ugly Before It Was Cool: 1991 Infiniti Q45
This next car comes as a tip from Johnny Bouncewell who writes: A car with a face only an engineer could love. Man, this was so radical then, but now, grill-free cars are everywhere. For likely under 2k all fixed up, you’ve gotta Radwood car that everyone will have forgotten existed. I agree that the grilless look is mostly tragic, but I appreciate the overall aesthetics of the Q45. It is a much better looking car than ANYTHING you could find on an Infiniti showroom floor today. Find this 1991 Infiniti Q45 offered for $1800 in Albuquerque, NM via craigslist.

Infiniti still has the grilless look on their showroom floors. From the looks if it, someone is taking a sawzall to the front end and getting rid of whatever grill was there.
