Found a wooden structure in place of the left rear window regulator; I'm not talking about a chunk of 2x4, I mean this looked like it was framed up by a carpenter and about to be covered with Sheetrock. They wanted that window firmly closed, even though the long-gone $600 MB window regulator had croaked.
Possibly related to this incident was a traffic ticket issued by, IIRC, the municipality of Irvine. Basically, in about 2009 timeframe the car was dismantled in a street parking place and this won't do in Orange County. It sounded like the whole interior was strewn down the sidewalk, which would make sense if you're trying to build a wooden frame using at least a whole 8' 2x4 (if not more) to secure a quarter window...
