    Default Gull Wing doors may be coming back!

    Infiniti has a concept vehicle being shown to the public that is called the TRIANT. The unusual feature of this vehicle from a rescuer's point of view is its' Gull Wing doors.

    It's not in production yet but they are getting favorable reviews at the auto shows so who knows.....!

    Note the TRIANT's door hinges are at the roofline and the latch mechanism is at the base of the B-pillar.

    Front-pivoting doors a la Lamborghini (and I have no idea if I spelled that right) are apparently the rage in the sport compact tuning set as well. Look for them on Honda Civics and others. The big wings and boy-racer graphics are a good tip-off that door mechanisms may be modified.

    If it has made its way to nowhere Tennessee where I am, it's everywhere.
