'Top Gear' Finale: The Crew Refurbishes Ugly Cars And Makes Them Cool (VIDEO)

For its season finale, the "Top Gear" guys were tasked with making the worst cars in the country cool. One of those cars? A 2001 Pontiac Aztek, a car so uncool, dealers couldn’t sell all the new ones -- even before the economy crashed ... even though a free tent was sold with it. So, to spruce it up, the guys had a few ideas.

“Cut out the fenders here, painted the plastic black ... Tinted the gigantic, ugly turn signals and the taillights,” Rutledge Wood explained. “As long as no one drives it while they’re turning. It’s great in a straight line though.”

The fix-up job worked: The new-looking Aztek sold for $4,100 at auction, a solid win for the "Top Gear" crew.
