10: Wide Body Stingray


Worst-of-SEMA-2013-08

Somehow, this baby blue C7 Stingray with a wide body kit managed to win the Gran Turismo People’s Choice Award. While this isn’t the absolute worst car at this year’s SEMA Show, it’s certainly among the top 10. Chevrolet poured untold effort into restyling its ever-popular sports car to maintain the Corvette image without keeping it from evolving further. Ballooning the fenders and saddling it with such large wheels doesn’t it any justice. Chevrolet did a bang-up job designing the C7 and this design does away with many of the proportions that make it so good.

10. Chrysler 300 Pickup Mess


With the 2011 SEMA Show just about wrapped up we’re sure you’ve already seen plenty of “best of” stories. But the world’s largest aftermarket expo is known as much for its abominations as for its stunning creation and so we’ve assembled a list of the very worst. The selection of eye-searing why-did-they-do-that cars and trucks was picked with the expert help of celebrity judges Barry Meguiar, RJ de Vera and Wally Sema – the man this whole crazy car show is named after (Note: none of the preceding sentence is true).

Placing in 10th spot and somewhat of an honorary member of the Top 10 is the school bus yellow Chrysler 300-grilled pickup truck. It’s got all the requisite terrible attributes from oversized chrome wheels to scissor doors and odd speaker housings. We can’t go too hard on it, however, as the truck looks to be built by a collision repair shop and is obviously meant to represent an accident.
