Hit a HUGE bird today.

Exiting the highway, going 85 or so.

The damn thing took off from between the highway and the exit and whak! right on the winshield. Bird goo all over. It was not nice.

What a fun wash job. Did it fly into you, or did someone flip you the bird?

Mein Auto: 2002 E46
One morning in 1996, on my way to work doing about 70 mph on I-94 Eastbound near Detroit Metro Airport, a big crow came right through my windshield, and with its beak and half of the head stuck in the passenger seat of my 95 Mercury, resulting in a $350 replacement of the windshield and a $500 replacement of the seat. Not to mention the foul smell of a dead animals carcass in my car.

And people ask me why I was in a big hurry to move out of Michigan.
