definitely not a bird in that pic, but there IS a picture around here somewhere of a Tbird with them. Maybe Homer's car?

The car belongs to Homer, I think.

Here is a pic of it:



I don't know if there are any others.

Yeah, I remember that, I think in this thread where I got the picture from.

Homer did post the picture, though, so he may know who's car it is (and his avatar is the same as the wheels in that picture).


Ok, found the thread where he said it wasn't his car.

As far as I know, we still don't know who's it is..........................

From what I've read, money IMO could be spent a lot better. Don't get me wrong, it looks pretty cool but damn these are some HEAVY doors to be messing around with.

While there are people here who can do just anything to be done to these cars, I think you are on the wrong website for your question.

Maybe a forum geared a little more toward the show crowd.

In the very first post in the thread racecougar linked to, it says "The final cost has come out to be $850.00 plus shipping."

That's crazy, but if I had $$ falling out of my A$$ or was that serious about racing it would be a different story.

+paint, and hardware, unless you reuse your old stuff.

let's not forget, these are not something for a street car, unless you have a full cage. the tread over at sccoa says you can add a steel bar, but i'm not buying it. mn12's are already weak to side impacts.

Lambo Doors

I too was looking to maybe look into a lambo door kit, i have seen many places but have no idea where to start since the doors are so heavy, the kits themselves are pretty pricey, and it does get to be a little ricey, but i still think ud get lots of attention rolling up to a gas station, i really dont have enough cash flow to buy new doors to and plus considering the fiberglass are for the 95 and lower and i have a 97 with the side moulding, so i dont know where to start, if someone comes along and can help me out please reply

The fiberglass door cost 850. Figure in prep, paint and adding all of the hardware and the price realistically goes to about 1200. The lambo kit is offered by Auto loc.

The price isn't out of the range of some us, but is it really worth it?
