This isn't a quiz because I don't know the answer either---but I'm sure there are lots of theories.

You might say this is the Word version of our "Mystery Cars" topic.

#1. Where did the term "opera window" originate, and how the heck did it end up on a 1977 Chevelle? Did 1977 Chevelle owners attend the opera all that often? Who knew? Any ideas?

(Once we've reached a consensus on the origin of a word, you can post another....but let everyone have a chance to discuss each one).
