If so, there's DEFINITELY access from the trunk to the car - it folds down just like the 3-doors do. When my '84 900T was broken into, the thieves used a screwdriver to remove the trunk lock cylinder, popped the trunk, and forced the backseat down, allowing them access to the car. When the car was found, not a single window was damaged - the trunk lock cylinder was mangled beyond reusage, and there was a small scratch on the trunklid... That was pretty much the extent of the damage to the car, besides the missing $1700 stereo system... -Justin
