Top 10 Vehicles From Another Planet

Top 10 Vehicles From Another Planet

8. Buick Encore

The Buick Encore is a subcompact SUV from GM’s somewhat-premium Tri-Shield brand. It’s essentially a rebranded and restyled Opel that’s offered to unsuspecting North American customers. But just because it gets a new grille and different wheels doesn’t change its fundamental design. Unfortunately the car looks like a stowaway from the Potato Planet.

The Encore is rather bulbous and somewhat lumpy, not at all unlike a farm-fresh Idaho Russet. The spud connection is especially evident when the vehicle is slathered in “Deep Espresso Bronze Metallic” paint, one of those earthy hues so many luxury or wanna-be-luxury brands like to offer. The Buick Encore is probably best served hot with sour cream and chives.

    Variety is the spice of life right? I’m glad we have “weird”, interesting cars rolling around. It sure beats a world filled with Beige Camrys.

    I agree with every entry, but am surprised that the Nissan Juke didn’t get at least an ‘honorable’ mention. Maybe it was too obvious. Haha! Nice job Craig!!

    Thanks, Miradart! Yes, there are 11 pages because of the “title” page.

    I wonder why the GMC Hummer wasn’t listed. Everyone knows it’s a Hummer when they see that baby drive by.

    My car ranked #1 :) maybe most people are boring for not liking every single car on this list. I love all of them except for that ford van…I don’t do vans

    Also had an FJ when they came out but traded it for more towing capacity. So, “Take me to your leader”. And not Barry, we don’t suffer fools well.
