Default Disappearing car door

yeah, it's real. I think the car was on Ebay a year or so ago. Seems like the car didn't actually run or some damn thing... though that video shows otherwise.

I kinda smell a rat though... the language has that Ebay ChinEngrish feel to it, with a dash of Nigerian expatriate money laundering thrown in for good measure.

lol thats retarded, i would never want that because i wouldn't be able to get used to it, and what if there is a glitch and the door opens while your driving and fall out, and they probably be very expensive to fix if that is real i don't believe it.

That Lincoln has been on ebay several times. Don't think it ever reaches its reserve. The pass side door still works, but the driver's side door mechanicals were described as being very broken.

you all know my standpoint on it...I'm sure they can get it to work, as you can see the doors are paper thin. I'd love to see a side impact on that, my dick could crash through it.

I'd love to chop off heads with that though....

the bmw is like impossible to get out of though. lol. you have to bring your knee to your face to get your leg out. Women couldn't drive them without pulling a Hilton every time they'd get out. lol.
