Thursday Twister: Square Windows

Welcome back to another episode of the Thursday Twister, the quiz feature where the anonymous commenters come out of the woodwork and the regulars stare at them like they are Children of the Corn.  Today we are going to build a list of factory built automobiles that have square side windows.   It might seem silly at first...but...well, yes it probably is.

The SJ-generation Jeep Wagoneer (like this one found here on eBay) may have been an expensive vehicle when new, but that didn't stop the guys who built them from using the simplest possible side windows by fitting fixed glass pieces to make the door windows (front and rear) completely square.  What other vehicles share this trait?

Standard contest rules are as follows: 

1. Only one car per comment (be sure to hit the refresh button on your browser before you post in case someone else has posted since you loaded the page).  Do not nest the replies, just reply to the main post -- if you reply to someone else's comment it should be in reference to his comment and not another submission.

2. You can post again, but only after someone else posts another car.  (Rule 2 Abrogated for the summer.)

3. The contest will end in on Sunday, Sept 6, 2015.

4. One submission per make/model.

5. Each car must be a production model.

6. No anonymous submissions -- pick a name with the Name/URL dropdown.

Ready....Set...square!

  1. So front and rear windows have to be square, or just one set or the other?

    ie. a mid-90's Tahoe/Suburban had a square rear window, the front not so much.
