Do you have a better example? Because the flaw in this one is that the frame of the car is 100,000x stronger in relation to the window then the frame of the screen door is to the storm glass, not to mention the ratio of surface area of the frame vs. the storm glass in a screen door vs. a little rear vent window in the back of a coupe.
