I think that in old cars the back window would shatter like that, maybe even if hit with a .38 or something similar. modern side windows will do the same. windshields can be hit with hammers or bullets repeatedly and stay intact. they have somekinds of glue-plastic combo to hold them from shattering. the rake of a windshield will not richochet rounds unless the velocity is low. If say fired from a long distance. at least from my at home tests. some car manufactures may have different windows my tests where conducted on american cars nothing new then 2000.
I have read test that say that the trajectory is not altered much at close distances even with something like a nine millimeeter. the reason they did this test was because some where worried that the 9 was to weak and would deflect.
