[ExI] disappearing car door

My biggest concern would be what happens if your battery goes dead or is
shorted out suddenly.

I've had that happen a few times over the years and there would have to be a
way to manually open the door quickly or it could cause a safety hazard.

The only other factor would seem to be cost.  Power roofs on convertables
always seemed to add a few grand to the price.

Is this cool or what?


The door goes underneath the car instead of swinging out.  Looks to me like
an even better idea would be to have it swing up and over the car, altho I
haven't tried to work out a mechanism that would do it.
