Back in the 2000s, General Motors made some ... interesting ... decisions. The pre-bankruptcy era for GM was a lot of guesswork, and a lot of odd vehicles -- mainly focused on trying to find new niches that hadn't been considered yet. Looking back, it's a lot of insanity -- but at the time, it made sense to try to explore new avenues. Or, at least, that's what GM told themselves. With that in mind, here are some of the oddball cars General Motors offered -- and they're all listed for sale on Autotrader.

2005 Cadillac XLR

2005 Cadillac XLR - $15,500

The Cadillac XLR was a Chevrolet Corvette-based Cadillac luxury sports car, with the Northstar V8 stuck under the hood instead of a typical Corvette "LS" V8. It didn't last long and Cadillac hasn't tried a roadster since -- but it was available briefly, and used examples are, of course, still available on Autotrader. This one is offered by a private seller in Riverside, California, east of Los Angeles, with 116,000 miles and an asking price of $15,500. Find a Cadillac XLR for sale

2004 Chevy SSR

2004 Chevy SSR - $15,400

The Chevy SSR was probably the most "oddball" car to come out of General Motors back in the 2000s, as it was a pickup truck that was also a convertible that was also some strange retro hot-rodder thing. Needless to say, it didn't find too many buyers -- but the ones that did buy it are really, really obsessive about it, and these trucks command surprisingly high prices today. This SSR is a bright red 2004 model offered by Huffman's Auto Sales in Mount Pleasant, Pennsylvania, southeast of Pittsburgh, with 67,000 miles for $15,400. Find a Chevrolet SSR for sale

2004 GMC Envoy XUV

2004 GMC Envoy XUV - $3,850

The GMC Envoy XUV is a midsize SUV that was stretched, and then altered to offer a removable roof so buyers could transport tall items like grandfather clocks or large dressers. Unfortunately, the number of people looking to frequently transport such things is very small, so the Envoy XUV was a big flop. Any Envoy XUV is rare, but this used one is offered with 183,000 miles by Fletcher Motors in Benton, Kentucky, for $3,850. Find a GMC Envoy XUV for sale

2005 Hummer H2 SUT

2005 Hummer H2 SUT - $19,998

The Hummer H2 SUT was essentially a Hummer H2 with a pickup truck bed -- an odd decision that nobody expected to sell very well. Indeed, it didn't, but it existed for those who really wanted a pickupy-SUV-ish Hummer H2. This particular H2 SUT is offered by Shottenkirk Fort Madison in Fort Madison, Iowa, where it's listed with 96,000 miles for $19,998 -- and it's the Hummer H2 for people who want to stand out from the usual SUV crowd. Find a Hummer H2 for sale

2005 Pontiac Aztek

2005 Pontiac Aztek - $3,495

The Pontiac Aztek was a very strange SUV that didn't really fit in when it was launched back in 2001 -- though it's universally agreed that it would probably be a success now, in the days of crossovers designed for "active lifestyle" car shoppers, which is exactly what the Aztek was. But if you want to relive the glory days of the Aztek, you can: this particular bright orange example with 134,000 miles is offered by Hollingshead Motor Sales in Cambridge, Ohio, for $3,495. Find a Pontiac Aztek for sale
