No.10 - Volkswagen Bus

Do we really have to spell out why this is one of the top 10 deadliest car designs? Thereís something exceptionally disconcerting in knowing your body is atop and ahead of the front wheels. Along with other flat-nosed pickups and vans of the day, this VDub took things a step further: If a head-on collision didnít do you in, there was always the potential for engine fires from the under-aerated engine, signifying one of the rare occasions when a VW Bus produced any appreciable degree of heat.


No.9 - Suzuki Samurai

Despite having horsepower that could almost be counted on fingers and toes, some Cletuses managed to get their Samurais up to speeds greater than a jog, then attempted to change direction -- bad idea. Suzukiís little SUV had a high center of gravity and the stability of a shopping cart, with approximately the same level of occupant protection.
