welcome to the forum, not too sure, my Clio is a 5 door so it's pretty easy to fit most racks

Hi surferchris, I dont believe you can, however Thule do a thing called a short roof adapter, that allows their bars to be fitted to 3-door cars, a bit more expensive I know, but rather that than loosing your mal while beasting down the motorway or A30 .

Hope it helps

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?

Are you talking about handi racks?

I They work on mine for the purpose that you are talking about but they fit through the back windows as I have 5 dr (one of the reasons)

However having a look at them it looks like it would be posible to do.
