Winds and Windows

Driving home today from work, winds reported 30 mph with gusts to 40. Vegas is getting blasted right now.

Anyway, I had my windows cracked down about an inch, doing 77 mph and a HUGE gust hit the car, big crosswind. I rolled up the windows and there was so much wind and negative pressure that the driver window tilted out about a 1/4 inch!

Everything appears to be okay. I was able to roll it down and slow down, then roll it back up, thank heavens I think it’s all okay. It appears the window seats into an upper track that supports it when fully up. That track helps support it quite nicely.

Watch venting the windows folks.
