Who thought it was a good idea to call a car Gremlin, or Cedric or Touring Bruce?

Which will fly first: the Moller Skycar or the pig? Hear about the floating car that sank? Hear about the show car so ugly the company had to promise they'd never build another that looked anything like it?

And then there was the fridge company that decided to make a car.

Whether it's a car with two, three or six wheels, has a motor scooter engine or a nuclear reactor, the most stupid name or the most dodgy design, You Must Be Skidding! will tell you all you need to know about the losers of the car world.
