Found On EBay: The 1993 Lincoln Mark VIII Rolling Door Concept Car Hides Your Heavy Doors – Jalopnik
Now just hold on here… a door that goes under the car? You know, I haven’t seen anything like that in car magazines or places where you can get customizations. I haven’t seen it in Plush magazine or DUB… but here it is. On Jalopnik you get the video of the car doing its thing (with sound!!!).
I originally found this on Digg (lots of comments over there about this). On Jalopnik, some (most from my last count) seem t totally diss the idea and the car AND the car maker. But not all:
@danio3834-You’re absolutely right about the Mark VIII in its day. I had a prototype that Ford had built to set a stock class land speed record at Bonneville. It ran 187+mph with relatively minor but highly trick modifications. The record stood for nearly seven years.
Yes… this idea stirred up the hornet’s nest. I like it, but not store bought. It would have to be something you put on later if you wanted or as an option at the dealer.
Mad easy to get into this car though… and everybody can see your fresh pair of kicks and your 210 pair of pants.
Hmmm, this is an ill concept.. I’d like to see if this works…
Yo I’m feeling your page homie (nh), I’m going to add you to my blog roll… Stay up!
