Even so, my sister, mom and I never ever complained about acquiring to squeeze into the again seat. For the most part, my dad’s Chevrolet Nova 2-door, and several Oldsmobile Cutlass and Pontiac Ventura coupes, presented adequate rear-seat area, furnished you did not head negotiating the path earlier the folded entrance seat—and for the most portion, we did not thoughts.
Americans are whinier these times, and count on their family members motor vehicles to be equipped not only with roomy next-row lodging, but straightforward entry to the area via a committed set of doorways. What I’m expressing is, the coupe is all but long gone. I problem you to title a sub-$50,000 coupe that is not a sports auto that is still offered. Go in advance, I’ll wait around.
A lot of coupes ended up accessible back again in 1981, on the other hand, and I have collected a several print ads from the period to prove it. If you recall investing time with any of these classic 2-doorway rides, inform us about it. The area to leave opinions is down beneath.
