    We TOTALLY have just had this argument but it was over a 65 cherry red Mustang. Tragically, we have decided that as incredibly amazing as it would be, the car that we can reasonably keep and exspect to put kids in the backseat of in the next 2-3 years did NOT need to be a sports car coupe.

    I think it would be awful to have a 2 door car with a baby/small child!  Whether it is a convertible or not, it would be a pain (I think it’s even a pain to be an adult passenger getting in the back of one, let alone strapping a little one in)

    But hey it’s fun to dream! Haha

    And when it’s pouring down rain in the middle of the grocery store parking lot, will he be thrilled to drop the top, and get the baby and the car soaked in the process, just to get the lil’ one out of the car? Yeah, I think not. Silly boys.

    My Brother-In-Law has a Camaro, and much to my surprise has no problem with the car seat! I’ve been having a similar debate with my Darling Husband, he has a pickup truck with no extended cab or backseat. He says it’s fine with a carseat because it’s legal as long as the passenger side airbag can be turned off, and his can. Technically he’s right. but I really don’t want my newborn in the front seat of a pickup truck!

    That just seems really impractical.

    Well for a child to be SAFE, which would be top priority, it would need the middle seat in the back seat. I’m not too familiar with the camaros but if there is a middle seat I totally say go for it. I had my daughter for the first year and a half in the back of a two door sports car and it was great. But getting a child in and out of a two door is EXTREMELY aggrivating. But it was worth it to have my baby girl and my baby car

    My fiancé and I are actually car shopping right now and we ruled out all two doors, specifically for this reason.

    @Wonderstruck:  And when they get older and can kick the dash and buttons on it is REALLY isn’t fun! We had a friend who had to buy a mini van because the car seat in the short cab truck just wasn’t working.

    @arametta127:  lol well tell him if you get a two door car he has to be the one to put the car seat in and out always. Knowing men he’d likely be ready to trade the car in after 2 weeks

    Our friend has the new camaro. I have enough trouble getting into that back seat, I can not even begin to imagine how you would get a car seat in and out of it!
