Replacement for the "quarter vent" window which was brilliant for deflecting the breeze in on your face before the advent of air conditioning. It probably works well for bringing the cool air in, although not good with air bags etc., so not legal.

Isn't that one of the best things about driving older cars?
That is one invention that can't be improved on. How / Why did they ever become obsolete? - Air conditioning is great, don't get me wrong but I'm a huge fan of the quarter vent,

the qtr windows became obsolete due to costs, yes always comes to down to big corporations serving the dollar/s. Cost of extra metal frames, bolts, screws, rubbers, fitting times etc etc Bummer for us with HQ's on, ha ha

MMMM... Hot PVC smell right in your face on a 42 degree day - I think I'll stick to the cracking the quarter vent open.

"If your car has quarter vents, a diff at the back, and was available with wind-down windows, you may talk to me.
Otherwise I am not interested. Amen."
