    I think 2 door cars are viewed as more sporty. But 4 doors are definitely more practical if you ask me, especially for Karting kids about. And personally I prefer estate cars too. If you ask anyone above the relevant age to name a sporty classic British car, I'd bet that many will say the Ford Capri.

    I make a distinction between practical every day transport and my hobby.
    For practical daily transport it has to be capable of doing everything from the supermarket run to getting a knackered old washing machine in the back to take to the tip.
    For my hobby, it’s 2 doors all the way. 2 doors typically have that lower roof line, coupe look, that is considered sexy. It’s the image, 4 door says married, kids, age and responsibilities. 2 door says young, free, single and maybe irresponsible!

    My favourite British car has 4 doors - the Rover P5b Coupe
    Everyone knows my favourite American cars only have 2 doors.
    When Australia made cars my favourite car had 4 doors.
    My favorite German/French/Jap cars don’t have any doors - I don’t like any German/French/jap cars!

    I have loved American cars since I was a toddler but my dad used to have a P5B coupe. Great big bench seat, that deep rear number plate, the rumbling V8 and the lovely smell of leather. I have loved them ever since. Nothing else he had after had the same impact on me, the Rover P6, the Triumph TC2200, Vauxhall Victor and a series of Cortinas. The P5B trumped them all. I guess in its way it helped cement my love of V8’s.

    Got any pics?
