#1 of 3 Design ideas, questions. Why don't they...

Post your thoughts and queries here... All your why don't they do his or that.
Why don't manufacturers put two wipers on the rear windows of some SUVs and wagons?
To improve aerodynamics, why don't they move the radiator under the vehicle? (Into a protected tube, within a shroud or something.) Or onto the roof or even in the trunk lid - you'd want a power trunk then.)
Why don't they put a 360 view degree view camera on the roof of cars or something like a periscope to the rear view mirror.

Actually Toyota did that on the Camry wagon back in the 90's.

^ That's rather ironic. I had a 1990 4Runner with the rear wiper mounted top centre. Great design for seeing airplanes and balloons out the rear window but a horrible design for seeing kids, cars etc. out the dirty lower left and lower right portions of the rear window.
