Cars are expensive, they take tons of time to save up for, and the minute you start driving them they lose value and the problems seem never to stop. I haven't even mentioned car accidents as the scariest part of driving and owning a vehicle. Accidents can happen to anyone, at any time, on any kind of road. Your personal safety is most important, but no matter the outcome the body of your car will have some damage and it could make it look "ugly."

Granted, ugly is a perception feeling and everyone will have different ideas of what makes something ugly or not. Nonetheless selling a car that has some damage is much harder than selling one that is new or in great condition. As the years went on, someone in society decided that there needed to be an option for these "ugly" cars, and that started the junkyard/scrapyard lifestyle we live in now. It's insanely easy to just sell your "ugly" car to one of these car yards for cash.
