my list:
1- Renault Multipla
2-Pontiac Aztec
3- Aurora
4- AMC Pacer
5- Edsel
6- Ford Pinto
7- Hummer h1
8- 1980's minivans from japan
9- Alfa Romeo Brera
10- Lamborghini LM002 (aka Rambo Lambo)
honorable mention: ssangyong rodius

There are a few on your list that are dead wrong. H1 for example. The H1 is amazing, tonka toy like. I suspect you listed it more because you don't like its "environmental image" than anything else. The aurora also was not particularly ugly. The ones you forgot were:

1. ford taurus - the oval, oval and more oval version.
2. any hyundai, except for the new sonata.
3. prius. It annoys me. Stupid wedge shape.
4. ford freestyle. B-b-b-oring. Boring to the point it was ugly. Later became the taurus X.
5. the nissan minivan. Stupid!
6. aztek sure.
7. lambo countach - sp? Dumb.
8. bugatti veyrone. Even dumber. 1.5 mill for that jelly bean?
9. dodge avenger. P-PA-please. Ugly.
10. kia rondo/JEEP compass. Tie for 10th ugliest.

well, i thought the hummer was a bit like a block on wheels, honestly (almost like the scion xb). and by aurora, i meant the one made by that priest (Father Alfred Juliano) not the olds with the same title.
argh! i forget the veyrone. it looks like an upside-down bathtub (albeit a very low waterline).

Calling that an upside down bathtub is being very generous. : )

Its amazing that for 1.5 million a copy they couldn't have spent $50 bucks on a designer!

I know. Another thing that amazed me was that alot of Europeans loved the Fiat Multipla- it was reliable, quick, etc. But the design was obviously and afterthought. When I first saw the car, my impression was "Oh, a roll of fat. Wait- that's a car? The front end? Ahhhh!"

Ok I just googled that fiat, I thought I knew what it looked like. I was right! I never understood that thing! Its like a pope mobile or something. Why is the glass so tall? Its like a rolling aquarium! Fiat says it has "fiat character", is that the same as ugly? I am talking about the latest one, the 1998 was ewww, even worse!

you're definitely right about the seville and the insight- the seville looked like a pug, and i always asked myself "why, why do hybrids have to be hit with the ugly stick"?

"Although the AMC Pacer presented an unusual design vernacular, the visual language of the Matador was more difficult.  Utilizing styling cues from multiple sources created a striking paradox of form."

Translation:
The AMC Pacer was just bland and odd.  The AMC Matador was pure ugly.  It looked as though it was put together by randomly choosing parts from different models.

Hudson Hornets are infamously ugly, too.

Just checked out an article on the new Ford Flex at another site. I am sorry, I need to nominate it. Maybe in person it will look better, but right now it looks like the box cars come in (if they did!) with that same, tired gillette shaver ford grill.

oh yeah, i forgot: nascar. i might get some flac for this, but nascars are very boring and boxy (and not very useful, just turn on, and turn left, [no bumps!]).
haha, maybe that's just because i find nascar boring.
