I was thinking about this again last night while I walked back to my car after picking up some groceries at Safeway. I saw a beautiful silver/black 17 inch alloy 2006-7 Monte Carlo LT. It drove off and I saw some of its good angles.

I thought to myself, had there been a little more "nip and tuck" to the styling update and had there been a 3800 V6 under the hood, I would have bought one...without a doubt. I still like my Buicks very much, but I know how much I like the coupe with bigger doors, buckets, a console and more of a wrap-around driver's environment.

So I say "coupe"...even though I like sedans, though not as much.

Your take?

Well not a Monte Carlo that's for sure. For me, body style depends on the segment and the car. Some sedans look fantastic. Likewise, some coupes are meh. Some wagons are sexy. I do know I wouldn't get a 2-door version of a sedan. It's half assed to me. They have to give it a more unique body, to make it look like it was designed to be a coupe for me to consider it.

Also you should have included wagon and hatch. This is a rather limited poll.

I actually had a base model pre-'06 Monte Carlo in Bronzemist come up beside me in traffic yesterday, het couple in their early 50's I'd guess. They had reasonably-sized aftermarket chrome rims on it, and it looked good gliding through traffic, even covered with salt. They turned off at the local full-service car warsh. Cool.

I voted 2-door with nary a blink.

I've had 4 2drs over the years (one a hatchback), a 4dr sedan, a 2dr SUV, a 4dr SUV, and a 5dr hatchback. I think for a daily driver in a sedan or SUV I lean toward a 4dr for the practicality and ease of ingress/egress (long doors are a pain in tight parking). Never had a wagon per se, but that's pretty much what the SUV bodystyles are like. I plan to always have at least one 2dr around.

Having driven a wide variety, I enjoyed my coupe but, for the moment, I prefer a more well-rounded sense of practicality. With having a van, a four-door hatch and company trucks available, I could always get back into a coupe when the kids get older. While they're in car seats, a coupe just isn't as fun to deal with. With a need for trucks, a wagon wouldn't be of any use for me.

So for now, seeing as vans and trucks don't apply here, it's 4-door hatch / sedan / coupe / wagon / convertible

LOL @ people not following directions... :P


I like wagons for function

1 They have all the ease of use that a sedan has

2 They can haul a greater volume

3 They (in full size guise) can swallow a 4x8 sheet of plywood & tow 6000 lbs

4 They handle better than a SUV & get better MPG also plus are lighter

5 can haul 8-9 passengers

6 Look great lowered

7 Haul my canoe on roof & tow my camper

8 They don't wallow around like mini vans

9 They morph into cool panel wagons

10 cost of development is lower than adding a new SUV to the portfolio

  • Chevy Estimated Range for Silverado EV Work Truck Raised to 450 miles

    When Chevrolet initially took the wraps off the Silverado EV last year, GM had estimated up to a 400 mile range based on its own calculations.  As the Silverado EV has made its way through development, it went for EPA certification and came back with 50 miles more than GM's estimate.  With this new EPA certification, the Silverado EV has an over 100-mile advantage over its only on-sale competitor the F-150 Lightning Extended Range (320 miles). The Silverado EV will launch first in WT trim with t


    All New 2024 Toyota Tacoma Yearns For Adventure

    The Toyota Tacoma has been the best-selling mid-size pickup in the U.S. for nearly 20 years. Holding such an important place in the lineup, Toyota has been very conservative with updates in the past.  The outgoing generation ran for a full 7 years, but even that was based on a platform that dates all the way back to 2004.  For 2024, the Tacoma sheds the old platform entirely and joins the Tundra and Sequoia on Toyota's new TNGA-F global truck platform.  The 2024 Tacoma is the latest (and final)


    The Ford Ranger Raptor Finally Comes to the US

    After years of being forbidden fruit offered only in overseas markets, Ford has finally deemed the Ranger Raptor worthy enough to bring to the U.S. The biggest reason for the U.S. not getting the prior version was its standard diesel power and the inability of the platform to take a sizable V6 engine. When Ford redesigned the 2024 Ranger (read more about the 2024 Ford Ranger here), they made sure to alter the engine bay and chassis to accommodate a V6. Powering the Ranger Raptor is a 3.0-li
