There was talk of that when the new regal came out and it was a hit. That would be pure blasphemy!

I dig it, but why does everything have to be a damn 4 door? Probably cuz they don't sell enough 2 doors, I guess.....

.

That would be my assumption. As much as I love the clean lines of a 2 door, as a daily driver I would need 4. Whether taking the dog with me, taking a couple people to lunch, or simply needing a little more space when picking up groceries on the way home, I would have to have a 4 door.

The way I see it, 2 doors are toys, 4 doors are cars. Cars appeal to a larger group of people... I could be wrong, but that's how I would look at it.

Who knows. Buick could pull a Caddy and make a 2 and 4 door variant like the CTS and ATS.

Looks like every car on the road today. I can't tell a Nissan from a Toyota from a Ford.

With that said, someone needs to hurry up and total one so the 6.2 can be modded into a B body.

It'll happen, eventually.

Maybe that's a '67 "Chevelle" for the US market and the other picture is a '71 "SS" for some overseas market? Looks like a Holden.

I was working foe GM when the first "bubble" came out in '91, and heard the same thing then......."WTF is that, gross, gay, what did they do, I like the chrome bumpers better"

It took some time (and better qtr windows, mirrors, wheel openings), but when the SS came out in '94, most everyone changed their tune. Cool

I'm picturing some dude in a BUM Equipment shirt and Oakleys with a Boston accent looking at the new '91 Caprices and going "Dude, this cah's foah GAYLOAHDS!"

Didn't want to give away what the '71 SS was, glad some people got it. Also has RHD windshield wipers...

^Yep, I actually have a pic of one of those, I think a 68-69, from the Kimball Fahhms cruise night...I'll have to find that. It was MINT.

Let's get weird! Notice anything funny about this car? (Aside from it being RHD)

Yep, as a Canadian Pontiac sold in US Pontiac dealers, lol. They only sold them here because people complained about the USA market Bonneville going to the G-platform!
