Hooniverse Asks- What Car Has The Angriest Face?

We humans tend to anthropomorphize our possessions – extending even to our cars – and we even assign them personalities.  As such, we look at the physical features, the hips of an E-Type say, and equate that to those of a person, oh say Kim Kardashian. And most every car has a face, what with the headlights mimicking eyes, grille a mouth, and perhaps the under-bumper valance approximating a soul patch.
When it comes to expression of emotion, many cars project ambiguous facades, while others put on the continence of a comforting friend. Those are cars that make you happy when you see them, and they let everyone else on the road know that you are probably not going to contest them over that space in traffic, or the last spot in the parking lot, so pleasant a demeanor  they present.
But what if you’re not so nice, and you want your car to project an air of malevolence? Obviously, a happy car just would not do. In that case, you’d want something with a face that perhaps frightens children, and causes old ladies to cross themselves when they see it. But what would that be? What car do you think gives off that look of anger, that image of indignation, what car has the angriest face?

    This '49 Lincoln looks a little angry to me. I don't know why, as I think she's very lovely and a beautiful color.

    Ferrari FF totally has the angriest face…

    Then again it might just be angry about how poorly Ferrari designed its face…

    If I knew how to post photos, you would have loved my suggestion!

      The Hooniverse page has a limited amount of width no matter how big your monitor is. A large picture will result in ugly scrollbars. I suggest that picture widths be limited to around 500 max.
      As for linking, Wiki and blog sites usually have no problems. I also suggest using the "Open image in new tab/window" option on your browser.

    Pretty sure it's mainly the lighting, but the 1958 Plymouth Fury:

      I think that just causes anger.

    For pure fury, I've gotta go with the 458.

    Nothing says, "I'm gonna eat you!" like a good ol' 1972 F-series truck:

      Clark Griswold and this 1963 Dodge D-200 might disagree.

    You'd be angry too if you had to wear a retainer all the time. 1959 Dodge.

    I'll nominate my 1960 T'bird, although I think that Buick above is angrier:

    Personally, I think the late 70's Impala is pretty angry, especially with the grille blacked out:

    Isuzu VehiCROSS, it even has fangs. I can't decide if it is angry or just dorky.

    Certainly nothing angrier than a Windstar. It's probably just self loathing.

      Sometimes the Windstar got angry and pouty.

      You get out of my head. I was thinking about that car when I woke up, and had that page open in another tab already.

    Hey, we forreners can do angry too…

    Absolutely bloody terrifying in the rear view mirror. Black helps too. And with 550hp / 550 lb ft, it's not all shout and no trousers, either.

    Some trick studio lighting can delve past a merely belligerent personality, and reveal the true evil within:

    Yes, it's just a render… but an angry render, it is.

      Welcome, you are among friends. Most of us are recovering [redacted] refugees from the J/tard wars, who have once again found their way back to true "Pah!".
      Praise be to Murilee.

    2. Deartháir Avatar

      Worked fine! Just add width="500" after your image tag, but still inside the pointy-brackets to keep it from rendering inside the scrolly-bars!
      Oh, and welcome. We're all refugees from that other place.

      1. Rust-MyEnemy Avatar

        The other place which, since it changed to a display format that utterly flummoxes our proxy system at work, rendering it totally unvisit-able, is now officially dead to me.
        I'm just glad I got one of the outside rooms here while there were still a few available. And I got a discount because of the roach problem.

    The "face" was an easy way to tell the last generation of Mercury Tracer from the Ford Escort. Tracers were angry, Escorts were happy.
