Is the verb "wind down" the most common one used for a car window? What's the oppiste?

Although in today's modern cars, we are probably more likely to 'put' the window down or up.
As a child I used to wind up car windows, toy cars, clocks and my gramophone. I think this was the key to my happiniess.
Nowadays I wind up nothing but my colleagues.
Yes - it's wind up/down for car windows.
I'm guessing that when our American friends get out of bed they'll tell you it's roll down/up.
Would I do an annoying thing like that?By "winding your colleagues up" you mean telling them false things just for fun?
Good call! We do "roll" down our windows and roll up our windows, but we also "put" them up or down.
I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
