I thought my back window was bad......!



This one must be a real adventure in parking lots and on-ramps.

Ouch! That totally takes the "cool" out of seeing a Porsche. It makes me sad.
I would also venture a bet that it has a CEL for SAI, the windows don't operate properly, the motor and cables for the top are shot, and the suspension is bad. That said, I also bet the IMSB is in fine shape.

To the owner of this car: If you read this, please pm me. I have a good top with a slightly scratched window that you can have for free. It doesn't have to be like this.
(Offer only valid in Oklahoma to the owner of the Duct Tape window car.)

Actually, if you are driving right, all you have to worry about is what is ahead.

That was exactly my thought!
Although like 78F350 suggested, it might not work.

True! Actually, the blind spots are so bad the back window doesn't help much anyway.
