i know russell lives up in the hills off of hollywood and ron lives somewhere near recording studio in russells house but do they actualy have there own pool i dont think so i know i live around the corner from disney world and have a indoor pool and jucuzzi with waterfall and my house up north is massive with diving board meaning at least 10 feet deep but i have seen pictures of russells house and i dont think there is a pool the cost of a pool would be up there in that neighborhood i mean how much money do these guys really have ron still drives around in that same old 74 vw thing and russell is still dodging his neighbors girlfreind making pancakes wishing she was with russell as he drives that same beautifull sky blue 56 or 57 thunderbird with opera windows but i dont think they have there own pool so where does the hippoppotamus realy live lol

What are opera windows?

By coincidence, I'm using Opera 44 on Windows 7.

You're right. I'm not from the US. I'm from the UK, where we don't have opera windows in cars, so never needed to invent a name for them. Here we have opera glasses, which are small binoculars for watching opera from up in the Gods. Why are those oval car windows called opera windows?

Most TR6s are convertibles, and there was a fixed head coupe but the windows rear of the B pillar are triangular.
Don't know anything about Wolseleys, think I know it as the Austin Princess, rot box didn't begin to cover it.

I just found a Wiki page on Opera Windows, which seems to have been mostly an American fad in th 1970s.

There were Wolseley versions of a lot of British Leyland (ie. Austin/Morris) models eg. 1100, 1300, 1800, Princess, Mini.

Never seen a Wolseley or a TR 6 with an opera window but I have a 1958 Bedford CA Dormobile with porthole windows which are similar.

Just saying...........

Yorkshire mainly, firm outings so far: Ellerton 4 June, Burley in Wharfdale 20 Aug and Bridlington Festival of Motoring in September, we're using that as our club's annual national meet.
