Pop out window

Since i've taken delivery, I thought it would be an awesome aftermarket part to make some sort of replacement window for this guy, that could manually pop open... can we get some interest and a company going on this?


this guy, right behind the mirror..

No one wants that, it would be cool but no one would buy it. Sorry.

Who puts frames where they're not needed?

To be honest, I wish that piece of glass never existed...but I can understand why they put it there... IMHO making it open/close will make the car look so silly as it doesn't look right with the design of the car.

Plus, these are frameless windows...good luck trying to figure this one out.

Its a gift, its also a curse. You can see from the comments below that yes I do speak for the whole community. I kid. Those pop out side windows would look cool I just don't see the demand. Also I kinda like the hood mounted side mirrors you see on some older Japanese cars. Id love a photoshop of that.

Wow, brings back long forgotten memories of my parents cars with "no draft" windows when I was a kid.

Handy for (yukky) smokers.
