What are some cars that you saw spy shots of or at debut at auto shows and think "this is a horrible looking car and I hope this thing flops more than the Aztec" but eventually the design or idea grows on you?
Nissan Juke (looked like an insect in the official pictures, but when I first saw it on the road, I thought it was the most futuristic looking SUV out there. Not to mention I love the small nimble size of it)
Buick Encore (thought it was completely unnecessary and looking too butch to be a Buick, but the more pictures I see of it, the more I think it looks like a classy micro-SUV)
Chevrolet HHR (when it first debuted, I instantly saw it was a copy of the PT Cruiser. But then I saw more pictures of it and realized it's a great SUV alternative and actually was saving up to get one until gas prices soared)
