Welcome to the Classic Car Weekly Automotive History Portal!
We are not experts, but enthusiasts who love automotive research. What we have compiled, we are sharing with you, FREE OF CHARGE (and if you don’t like it, we will refund your money in full). Right now we are working fastidiously on showcasing every two (or less)-door car built since the end of WWII. The number of cars involved is staggering and each has it’s own dedicated page within the appropriate PDF document – that is, one page per model run or styling change. Eventually, the hope is to include all models ever produced of all types of cars and trucks.
There are a lot of websites out there that claim to provide similar information, but they are scattered and ad-ridden. We chose WordPress.com because it is the best way to do this, ad (and cost) free.
A little background: The original intent behind this was to catalog every sports car ever made. Pre-war records of automobiles can be quite sketchy. Plus the unbelievable number of different makes produced leading up to 1940 was mind-boggling. So we narrowed it down to “Post-War Sports Cars” and almost immediately came upon a car or two that walked the line of “sports car.” Then, somewhat arbitrarily, I just said “okay, every car with two doors.” And so that’s what we have here: All Two-Door Cars, 1945-Present. And, before you get smart, I don’t count the rear hatch on a hatchback as a third door. No sane person enters their car from that door. However, the rear-flippy doors of the Mazda RX-8 (and the like) exclude it from this list.
To help improve load times, we’ve broken it up alphabetically. Find the letter you want to learn more about and dive in to the rich history of the automobile!
Information and specs provided (if found): car name, years produced, how many made/number produced, horsepower, 0-60 time, top speed, torque, engine liters, cylinders, drivetrain configuration, original price, picture, variants, corporate name. Information gathered was done at quickest pace possible. The plan is to go back and search more thoroughly for missing information once the entire alphabet has been combed for cars.
