WINDSHIELD   フロントガラス


  • The windshield is the window at the front of a car or other vehicle.

    Be careful:
    "Front glass"(フロントガラス)is Japanese-English and is NOT used to mean windshield.
  • windshield  は、車やその他の乗り物の、前面についているガラスのことです。 注意:
    Front glass(フロントガラス)は和製英語です。windshield  の意味にはなりません。
