Yep, that's what I want, more electric motors, sensors, control modules, ect on my car.

I can only imagine what kind of mess there would be when this friggin afterbirth is hit on the side!

No, sorry, I think this was like "Ear deoderant" that was test marketed a few years ago. They developed something trying to create a need.

What'll they think of next? Cool find there NEWINTERIORS

It has to be a sealing nightmare, with all the sliding action.


Also, wouldn't you just love waiting for the window to roll down then the door open while you were trying to get out of your car in bad weather?

I guess if you are rich enough to afford that door setup,, you send your butler out.


I tried to find some more info about the car, it appears that it is a concept car, and not something that you'd retrofit without some MAJOR rework.

I tried to go the the website listed, dissapearing doors.com, but got some weird forbidden message..

I did find this though, with some background info and a link to an ended ebay sale for the lincoln.

http://hackedgadgets.com/2007/07/21/...ring-car-door/

(That's an interesting forum)

Also has some cool pics of inside the trunk, showing th egiant co2 tank and control stuff.

Later, mikey

Awsome stuff there Mikey! You are the master at googling!

Remember the "Clam shell" rear doors on seventies wagons? Click here to see the madness I remember seeing these in the showroom at Turner Buick where my dad worked. They were a NIGHTMARE even new! The alignment problems started before they were delivered. They were such a failure I don't ever remember even seeing one in person outside of those brand new ones on the showroom floor!

That IS cool! Way better than refrigerated cup holders!! Imagine, we can park our rods next to family wagons without fear of door dings. Bring it on.

I read once that the last TRUE inovation was the automatic transmission (almost 60 years ago!).

I remember a few years ago being at the San Francisco auto show with a bunch of people standing around a new BMW watching the boot open up and the top fold into it. I said out loud, "Cool, just like the fifties and sixties Ford Thunderbird!"

There improvements, but few inovations.

I drove a 1973 Buick Estate wagon for seven years. I liked the clamshell tailgate. It only needed repaired once in seven years. I still own it even though I haven't drove it in years. Here is a picture of my old wagon.

Thumbs up

I like it!

Its Way better than Lambo kit on a Chevy Pick up .

Plus there would be no way of poking your eye out on these newer doors.

You would spend just as much time opening a door & going around it as it just slipping out of the way.


Now everyone will be able to load plywood in their car .

Would be read good for car jackers

Same as automatic mini van rear doors .

I wonder what happens if you get a arm or leg in the way?

I will loan my Mother in Law for testing ,Free of charge.

Same goes for Music. It's all been done before , and even the electronics that we use were conceived in the late 60s/70s thanks to some true electronic pioneers. Imagination seems to have given in to commercialism. Who cares/dares to break down new doors when you can always play it safe , stay on the beaten path and make a dollar?
That Darrin car that Poncho posted looks cool as a cucumber. fresh from the fridge.

That's a concept used by Ford on a Lincoln Continental.
The doors do go under the car. The guys selling these things as their design are in a load of trouble if Ford find out, unless they sold them rights to it. That Lincoln is a concept car originally owned by Ford, these guys bought it from ebay, I know because I saw it on ebay. That's how I know how it works, because the ebay listing had pics of the underbelly, and pics of the mechanisms etc.
I saw the ebay listing & ran a patent search on the numbers and they're still owned by the original design firm, which was Joalto Design Inc. of Detroit, MI

The original 1954 Kaiser.
