Default Door popper...

alrite im at work....bored out of my mind....so i started thinkin of things i could do to the bonnie....well i havent seen yet a bonnie that has door poppers like they have on hotrods, kinda like in Gone in 60 seconds. i was wondering if anybody has seen these things work and/or has installed them? what brand is good?? is it worth the money to do it? i found this site for a 40lbs pusher

also if i were to do this cuz it was worth it.. wheres a good place to get the shaved door handles??? i think this would look really sweet on our cars!!

They do look cool.....

But they are a serious safety risk.... in the event of a crash and they need to open the door to get you our, they can't. They've have to cut the door off, which can take time.

Safety over style......

good point!! well how bout if i keep the door handles but put the poppers on?? pointless?
i just think that would be kewl!

*EDIT* well if i were in a bad enough accident like that.... either way they most likely would have to cut the door or something to get to me. but its a very good point so dont get me wrong!! i agreee!
