I have seen a wire crate whose door side has a slope going down. Because of the slope, you can maximize the space of the bottom of the crate in cars. I am looking for such a crate, but I could not find it on internet. I would appreciate if you could provide some information such as website.

Thank you,

Probably an older model Kennel-Aire. I don't think they make them anymore, but I have been told someone else does. I think they were mainly used for station waggons back in the day.
Maybe there are some used ones out there, but I would guess not in good shape.

Here's one:

Appears to be made by General Cage

Yes General Cage is the only one who makes them now. I purchased 2 at a conformation show - that way I did not have to pay shipping. They are very expensive but last forever. My first General cage crate is still going though slowly missing a few pieces after over 15 years.

General Cage still makes a slant front crate. I have one I used in an Escort wagon. It is constructed well and a little heavier gauge than many straight sided crates I have used. Do a web search for slant front crates. The cheapest I found was $118.
