I thought that the mid-80'* malibu classic was this way. Maybe the 6000 too, not sure
Yeah, we had an 1982 Malibue Classic 4-Door, it was dreadful, although the lottle crappy sail windows in the back popped open....

<--- Cringe, brining back BAD memories with that car...

It'* odd that it'* only on passenger cars... SUV'* don't have to adhere to the rule. case in point: the 1999 Blazer in my shop, windows go whiz! right into the door. Damn lawmakers...

Well, i learned something new tonight. I just thought it was because of the doors, and if they started making square doors to fit the windows, it'd make the car look ugly. lol.
