[DML] Re: Gullwing Doors on Any Car



Actually, The Bricklin HAD It's own Engineered frame,it DID NOT come 
from any other vehicle in production,it WAS made/engineered as a 
Safety Sports Vehicle...Bricklin (SV-1)(the same as DMC had started 
onto the Delorean,(DSV) but later just switched to DMC)the Massive 
frame along the side of the Bricklin was put/engineered there for the 
Safety of the passengers,(for side impact) the Gullwing doors were 
part of the safety cage "birdcage"(in Bricklin terms)that totally 
surrounded the passengers,just think of a massive square frame 
running along all sides of the car,then a  MASSIVE FULL safety cage 
is installed on top of that frame(roll cage)So basically Not only do 
you have a massive frame running along the side of the Bricklin..but 
you have a SECOND frame bolted on top of that(the safety cage)making 
it IMPOSSIBLE to put anything but Gullwing doors...or GT-40 style 
doors..Again the Bricklin is Truly a Gullwing car/Safety 
Vehicle...There was NO WAY around not putting gullwing doors on 
it...The four things that were all Bricklin is the Engineered 
Frame/Safety cage, and the Body and the body  panels and wiring..just 
like the Delorean..which had it's own engineered frame Body and  Body 
panels and wiring.And like the Delorean..everything else was from 
other cars parts bin.
