There's been talk that the xB is ugly (it isn't), which made me think about the ugliest car I've seen on the streets lately: The Dodge Caliber. Every time I see it I cringe. It's like a bad wreck even before it's wrecked - so horrible that I can't help but stare at it. The gratuitous folds around the base look like granny's swollen ankles spilling out around her tight shoes. The hideous black vinyl strips tacked above the windows must be a failed effort to make it look smaller. Why else would they be there? Who buys these things? What are they thinking?
