I don't get the "rice" thing. Lamborghini and Alfa Romeo are both Italian. Wouldn't it make the scissor doors more a "pasta" or "meat ball" type of thing?

So what are all the cars that come from the factory with these type of doors and 500+ HP. What would you call them, pansy cars. Your defense in calling it a muscle car makes no sense to me...

I would not do this to my car, if you want to do it to yours fine, but if I ever saw it, I doubt I'd like the end result.

Automation is the new black.

Can I have your attention?

It's a standard feature.
1) Yeah, the doors are long but that's nothing new for a Camaro
2) Nothing really to say about that
3) Ah, and the Camaro won't catch any attention on its own?
4) Award winning custom cars are about doing a good job at making something unique, that stands out from the rest of the entrants in the show. So, if something is 'standard' that will detract from its value because its overdone.

The 'rice factor' comes from the aftermarket kits. Lamborghini's are done like that from the factory, they are supercars. A Honda Civic comes with normal doors. The majority of people who put these doors on a Civic are ricers

I knew it. You guys wouldn't agree. My previous post is oriented toward the largest group of aftermarket door kit buyers, show car drivers. They do serve the function of making doors less likely to bang against other cars, but apparently function isn't as important as it used to be, which is ironic from a forum that praises stripped muscle cars like the Z28. That's okay. You don't have to agree. If everyone and their grandma had a vertical door kit, then they wouldn't be unique on my car.

I'll just go back to popping my pink collar while I rock my new haircut at the bar drinking Jager bombs.

What's wrong with calling an extremely powerful car a "muscle car" And why does that make me a dueche bagggggg? I'll admit I usually call those cars "supercars" BBut like milk said, the corvette is a "muscle car" So what is the separating line between a muscle car and a Super car. Because their lap times are starting to overlap, their handling is starting to look the same, their 0-60 times are starting to be withing tenths of a second apart. The only thing I see that makes a supercar a supercar is a fancy smancy interior

Seriously WTF, this thread is fking stupid. "Hey look at this guy, hes not following the majority--flame on"!!!!!

anyway, get your lambos, its not my thing, but I don't think it looks bad...

To me the line from Muscle car to super car is just where it's made.

the Corvette is a muscle car because it's american, but if it weren't for that it would be a super car.


and yes I consider the Saleen S7 a muscle car too.

but then again that's just my opinion
