Some Cars Just Should NOT Have 4 Doors
Yes, folks, some cars just should not be 4-doors. A lot of folks felt this way when the Dodge Charger was reintroduced in the 2006 model year, but we did get used to it. For the most part. I know the cops sure did.
And usually, if a car has a back seat, I'd like back doors there. I learned my lesson in a 2-door Chevette about leaning forward to let folks in the back.
But there are some cars that no amount of time will ever pass to let them be. They are surely from, or should go to, the twilight zone.
Over in the pony car corral, it seems some people think a Mustang should have 4 doors. And aren't we glad that Ford had a better idea and didn't build this:
Somebody wanted to know what a '69 Mustang 4-door might look like:
And in 2013, it looks like some folks still do:
The Mustang's cousin, the now-defunct Mercury Cougar, had 4 doors for a little while:
And no, Chevy, we haven't forgotten about you. Behold the 4-door Camaro:
Rodney Dangerfield once said, "I have a cousin called '4 Eyes.' Then he got glasses. Now they call him '8 Eyes.' " Well, these cars had 4 doors. Now they have 4 doors on each side. Maybe they should be called "8 doors." Actually, they are called "Airport Limousines."
This one was so "unique," I had to show it twice:
Several people thought the VW Beetle might look good as a 4-door. Well, it did make sense as a taxi:
Yes, they made much more sense than a 2-door VW Taxi:
Like it or not, there was a true 4-door Ranger pickup... Why didn't we get it?
Then again, some cars just don't look right as 2-doors:
And then there's this:
