[color=#000000ost_uid0]Were Astina's ever released in a 2 door version here or overseas?
I know the Eunos 30x was 2 door, but somebody reckon's the Astina was also.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Nope, the Astinas were never relaeased in 2 door. Though some people mistake the BA for a 2 door and try to fold the front seat forward!

The closest thing to a 2 door Astina was:

the 323P - a 3 door Protege
[imgost_uid0]http://protegetech.com/323pspring.jpg[/imgost_uid0]


or the 323C (which we got as the Laser Lynx in Aus with different lights at the front)

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Very Coupe' esk...I must have missed that version, darn it!
Nice job TB. I'm still looking for the rubber, I know its got to have some tyres on it*

A.k.A Web masters (no-door openings visable) somewhere on this site....hmmmm Jelly Bean shape.... * *

Anyone keen enough to try a Cabriolet version on their computer too see the result, just hack off the roof and leave the rear spoiler. Just as summer bites the dust...

[color=#000000ost_uid0]That is a nice looking car!
Was that just knocked up on a PC??
Is there even any room for air in that rubber?
Looks like a 15 series sidewall![/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Theo, that is PHAT!

It looks heaps better than the real 2 door...


Someone, please try the convertible option, even if it ends up looking crap....

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Fully f&@ken sik bro. *Love the 2 door look and love the chopped top look, although the windscreen looks a bit dodgy at that angle with no roof. *Looks a lot better than those Honda pieces of crap (or whetever they are) you see goin round. Oh, yeah, I thought wheels were suppsoed to have tyres on them for grip and stuff???

[quoteost_uid0]mmmm ill be having sweet dreams tonight 2 door convertible astina *[/quoteost_uid0] *hmmm, righto then... :: *[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#FF0000ost_uid0]good job with the photoshop, but it just doesn't appeal to me. just confuses me to much or something. maybe it's the fact that it looks too much like the astra convertible.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Good job there Mick!!

Looks the goods. Out of the 2 pics, i'd definately go for the coupe. Like Dan said, structural integrity.

Poor Theo, his car has been on the receiving end of some modifying lately!!
