What do you call the roof window in a car? You know, many sedans had something like that. You could then stand up on your car and enjoy the view. I am not sure what it's called anymore. Is there a word for it? I am assuming there's a word since it was all the rage during the 2000s.

  • I think at one time there was a distinction, one term meaning one that would open, and one meaning one that was fixed. I'm not sure that manufacturers use the terms consistently. I also see "panoramic roof" for a very large glass area which may or may not open.
