I've never heard the term "3 box car," what's it mean?  I cannae figure it out.

An e30 is a 3 box car. Hood/trunk/occupants.

a hatchback is a 2 box car. 

At least I think thats what it means.

It means it has a separate trunk, really. Box for the hood/nose, box for the passenger compartment, box for the trunk.

Gotcha, thanks.
