The Vertical Door Craze

For ultimate bling status, consider vertical doors


I am truly intrigued by the recent upward surge of custom rides sporting vertical doors. Now, my mind still tends to think "Lambo" doors, but I have had this technicality corrected several times by agitated friends who point out that vertical doors are not the same as lambo doors.

 

Either way, reconfiguring door hinges certainly seems the thing to do. However, I have been grappling with an explanation as to why. Perhaps this modification is necessary to keep up in the custom world. Perhaps it's a show winner. Perhaps it's now just standard on the to-do list. Perhaps it facilitates parking lot pimpin. Perhaps it's just the way it is, and the reason doesn't even matter.

 

Maybe it's just me, but on more than one occasion, I have turned into an open vertical door and almost smashed my face on an uninviting and potentially hazardous door corner. Perhaps I just happen to be face-level with vertical door corners, which would mean this was a unique experience. And, knowing me, I'd probably get tangled up in the whole door-opening and shutting process, ending up on the roof instead of inside the vehicle. For one final observation, and perhaps an ignorant one, how do you open your vertical door in a parking structure? Don't the doors swing pretty high? Perhaps there are some trade-offs to sporting the ultimate in bling-bling accessories. And why haven't mini truckers embraced this vertical door action?
