    I don't know if there is a 4 Door thread going at all, but as much as a lot of people hate them they seem to really be growing in popularity. Of the few "Cars" we have actually done builds on 80% have been 4 doors in the last 3 years. Either the 2 doors are just too damn hard to find and expensive, or people gotta move more people. I want to see some more cool 4 Door Hot Rods and Customs. Ill start. IMG_20160820_140352757.jpg This is the 50 Chevy we sold to Netherlands last year was sweet and low. M2 slammed 305/350.

    Like what I am seeing so far, here is our Wagon that I picked up from a Fellow Hamber a few years back almost complete just cant seem to get over center and get the glass and interior in it. There's a lot of glass in this bad boy. IMG_20160818_131111998.jpg

    I will say, if you're gonna drive it and live with a ride, a mordor makes life easier. Style-wise, sometimes they aren't as fetching as a 2 door, but then, a 4 door with suicide doors is often more cool, imo

    I cant get the pic to upload but I'm currently building a 62 Ford Falcon Town Sedan for the wife. It's our little family hauler. Currently lowered 2" in the front and 3" in the rear, all rebuilt front suspension, 200 inline with a 3spd auto out of a 71 Maverick, modest shave job, and currently at the upholsterer. Plan is paint next summer along with a disc brake swap and then it's "done"

    Had a guy come up to me last year at btt50's asking about putting a Toyota Prius drive train in his Chevelle. Luckily a blown stupid cam Duce drove by and I just said if it doesn't sound like that it's not a Chevelle. I he walked away kinda pissy, but if it doesn't have the V8 sound what's the point.

    Love me the 55 Mordors. Did a cool one for a guy last year. Unfortunately he didn't appreciate how sweet it sounded with the cam he wanted in it, so I had to detune it and may still have to swap out cam.

    Beggars can't be choosers, with the prices of two doors right now, I'd happily cruise a more door!
