    Oldest discussion in FEOA history.

    Some think hatchback is only like a Focus ZX3 with no rear end at all. But the 91-93 EGT was a Hatchback. It may look like a trunk/notch, but it is not; since the rear window and shelf open with the deck lid.

    The Escort ZX2 is a true notchback coupe. Rear window is fixed, and the rear shelf is a solid beam and not removable.

    Also, the notchback Fox [79-93] Stang is also called a '2 door sedan', since it has a trunk and a formal roof line.

    notchback, hatchback

    really? Lemme see, the BROCHURE FROM FORD, for my 94 EGT says that the "1994 Ford Escort GT is only available as a hatchback, 3 door model" with "ABS as an option" and "specifically styled wheels..." ALL of the magazine tests called it a "hot hatch" and referred to it as a hatchback. this is so stupid, you guys should all buy AMC's and really got to town over piddly little BS!

    I'm going to throw some fuel on the fire now because I'm bored.
    It's called a lift gate.

    Holy cow, I never thought my one simple post all those years ago would have turned into this big discussion...And Onegimp, I think the british term would be "liftback." I've seen a similar style referred to as a "sportback" also.

    This thread should be cleaned up.

    AND

    The 94-95 Miata, 90-94 Protege LX, and 91-96 Escort GT have 8.8:1 Pistons. The 96-97 Miata has 9:1 pistons.

    So is there an interchangeability guide floating around here?

    I had questions as to if an MX6 VAF was a K code or U code, there are a couple getting parted out around here and I want to know if there's anything I can raid off of them. Thanks!

    i would just like to say who cares what terms are used so long as we understand the meaning of what people are trying to say i mean its one of those things in different parts of the country (or the world even) people use different words for different things like food or cars or even cities so we should not get so worked up over a little thing like weather some one called it a hatchback or a notchback or lift gate or whatever




    think what i mean don't hear what i say
