Re: Design: This really is a dumb question...
I don't know why they made both in 2 door. In 4 door, I LOVE Hardtops, I love that 6' wide opening like my 1975 Impala had.
Also, Chevrolet called the Hardtops "Sport". Like my Impala's actual model was a 1975 Chevrolet Impala Sport V8. And it had the weakest engine (350 2V), and 4 doors, but the Hardtop made it "Sport". Buick/Pontiac/Oldsmobile all had names for the Hardtops as well, but I don't recall them.
