The Pontiac Aztek was a mid-size crossover made by Pontiac from 2001 until 2005.
A Business Week study said the Aztek was "the first awkward step toward innovation.”
We wonder if the designers of the Aztek were trying to outdo the 1958 Edsel.
The bumpers and lower panels resemble a trash can and the rear end looks like the south end of a northbound hippopotamus.
We will never know for sure but it’s possible the Aztek hastened the demise of the Pontiac brand.
