Like They Used To, Hamilton, Montana

Whilst trundling about my old neighborhood, what does my meandering eye espy? A 1950s-era International dump truck - still working hard, and looking for a new home. They really don’t make ‘em like they used to. 

 My ever-burning automotive question (please forgive the strong overtones of whine): whyever did they quit making those delightful little triangle vent windows as part of the front door? 
If you know such things, please enlighten via the comment field.

  1. Probably to cut costs. They were called quarterlights. The passenger side quarterlight on our vehicles were usually smeared with dog snot. Smokers liked them also.


Your thoughts, please?
