Nothing screams the Greatest Spectacle in Motorsports like a mid-sized sedan that, despite its front-wheel drive, was noted for "competent handling." Plus, it sounds like it's named after a Disney princess.
Year: 2000 Make: Oldsmobile Model: Aurora Driver: Anthony Edwards
9. '77 Delta
Don't be fooled by the "cool" black and silver paint scheme, this ride was as ordinary as it comes. During its 50 years of production, the Oldsmobile 88 had some sweet looks — basically everything until the eighth generation debuted with this very plain 1977 body style. Even making James Garner (not pictured) the celebrity driver didn't help this lemon.
Year: 1977 Make: Oldsmobile Model: Delta 88 Driver: James Garner
8. '84 Fiero
At least, it looks like a sports car. But the shortest and only mid-engine car to ever pace the field also had 40 less horsepower in production (than on the track) and had a tendency to catch on fire.
Year: 1984 Make: Pontiac Model: Fiero Driver: John Callies
7. '97 Aurora
The first of two Aurora's to pace the field, the bubble shaped sedan did run a V-8 engine. But that was about the only thing going for the car named after the Roman Goddess of Dawn.
Year: 1997 Make: Oldsmobile Model: Aurora Driver: Johnny Rutherford
6. '92 Allante
Of all of the great cars Cadillac has made, the Allante has to be the most non-descript, boring bodystyle they ever made. At least, it carried a 295-hp, 4.6-L, V-8 engine and was driver by a superstar.
Year: 1992 Make: Cadillac Model: Allante Driver: Bobby Unser
5. '01 Bravada
An SUV shaped like a mini-van? Really? Honeslty, an SUV? Apparently they couldn't get John Mellencamp to drive it, so they had to settle for his wife. So, so sad.
The most famous thing to ever happen to a LeBaron was pacing the Indy field in 1987. Number two on that list? It got traded for an MG by some girl named Kitty in a Cake song. Also, considering the LeBaron was known for being a POS, we're shocked it actually made it around the track. The fact that Carroll Shelby (not pictured) was driving it is the only reason it's not No. 1 on our list.
Year: 1987 Make: Chrysler Model: LeBaron Driver: Carroll Shelby
3. '85 Calais
Honestly, we had no idea Oldsmobile ever made a Calais. That's because it's more commonly known as the Cutlass and was originially available with, no lie, 92 horsepower.
Year: 1985 Make: Oldsmobile Model: Calais Driver: James Garner
2. '90 Baretta
It was never actually produced by Chevy. It came in only bright yellow or turquoise. It had a whopping 180 horsepower, and looks like it should have been driven by the cast of "Baywatch."
Year: 1990 Make: Chevrolet Model: Baretta Driver: Jim Perkins
1. '83 Riviera
Sure, the twin-turbo V6 under the hood was pretty solid, but it's wrapped around a big pile of crap. The two-tone beige paint and barely legibile race graphic are horrible. Horrible, we say! Not even its rich "Corinthian Leather" seats could keep it from topping our list.
Year: 1983 Make: Buick Model: Riviera Driver: Duke Nalon
