Serously though.....GTO quatroport if done right I believe could be cool. As a younger man I told myself "no way" to any 4 door and "never ever" to a minivan (that still holds true). But now, as a family man and car enthousiast I could easily see a stylish Gran Turismo Obligoto fashioned from a four door Tempest or Lemans.
Hell, last year I went to a car show and one of the most incredible (to me
) cars was a 69 Vista Cruiser Olds wagon done up as a Hurst Olds clone. Had the same hood, interior(buckets,dash, his/hers console, 8-track), big wing on the roof and all the correct paint and striping (white pearl/gold) and the BIG Hurst graphics on the side it was BAD ASS.
I mean once you are sitting in the drivers seat do you really care whats behind you? Granted there is a slight wieght penalty but I think that the convenience and utilitarian benefits outwiegh that. Clean off the rear door handles on a hardtop and most people would have to look twice. I've even seen some 50's 4 doors converted to 2 door by welding the rears shut. PHP just had a 62 Catalina SD cloan the owner converted to 2 door from a 4 door. A lot of 2 doors and 4 doors shared the same frame and wheel base.
Think of an "old school" G8
