Armbruster-Stageway built in two basic lengths. Commonly they are differentiated by referring to how many "door lengths" were added. 

This would be called an "8 door" (2 door length stretch) if only one door length were added it would be called a "6 door".  The number of doors that actually open was a customer selected option. 

 

Neat cars, they are significantly hindered by their length. They don't fit into any garage, you cant make a U turn on a residential street and you cant make it around the curve in a McDonalds drive through.

The chances of getting together enough friends to fill it up for a ride is miniscule. These aspects make the 6 door version sell much quicker when they sell at all.

But if you're in a traveling Bluegrass or Polka band....😊
