Consider the split, or dual, rear window our equivalent of a Town Car opera window, a step above the hoi polloi Cossie single pane.

I prefer it, too. :wink:

I try to be okay with it, and I am better than I was before. I don't nearly barf when I walk up to my car these days thankfully, but I still think it kills the natural aethetics of the shell.

BTW: I was like, "he's confused' when you were talking about the louvres. I could also go without them without a worry. Probably will go without actually.

I would propose that Ed's suggestion that the Merkur's split window was "Town Car-like" is much more barf-worthy. :puke (Hey, finally found a good use for that emoticon!)

Sorry, can't buy that one. The largest grouping of louvers is in the forward footwells, where it's pretty close to dead flat.

We need to find someone on the inside at Ford who was involved with the engineering of this body.
We've got just the person this year at Carlisle....
