bird goes, "POOF!"
And through the windsheild it comes!
At least we have the answer to the publisher's question:
What happens when Road and Track meets Field and Stream?
lol i hit a crow once when i was going to work EARLY in the morning, I just woke up and so did the crow ^_^
It hit the top of my windshield at 75 mph and spun off the top of my car......i dont think it got up too.....poor guy i hit right on the side of his body
but damn that bird didn't feel a thing when the Viper hit it! funny pics!
What was trhe last thing to go through its mind?
Last year when we came back from the F1 GP at the Nürburgring, we did about 240 km/h on the german 'Autobahn'.
There was a big crow on the right track so we went a bit left and at 10 meters of the crow, the crow flew up , but because we were driving at high speed , he couldn't fly over the car anymore.
so with hit the poor bastard with our headlights (we were driving an BMW 740 , the model with the 4 separate headlights. )
When we stopped, half of the grill and one headlight were totally destroyed
and the bird was jammed into the radiator.
Not a pretty sight !!
And the repair bill wasn't pretty also.
Now that is funny.
I hit a Cardinal once doing just over 80 mph. All I saw was this big red explosion right in front of my face. Scared the hell out of me though.
once on the german highway driving 170mph i've seen a black cloud over the street....then it made an awful noise RRRRRAAAAAATSH...i couldn't see anything anymore...it was a swarm of bumblebees!!! i had a layer of 2 inches on my windshield...what a terrible mess. but it was very dangerous though.
I hit a dove one day. It just dive-bombed into the front of the car (at about 70). Just kinda exploded into feathers. There was a little smudge on the MBZ emblem.
The dove went to peaces....I know, I know.
I hit an owl going about 70MPH and its little beak stuck in my windshield, the rest was scattered about the road.
You should see what happens when this happens in an airplane @ 300mph! It is quite an experience!
Notice that that would not have happened in a GTS.
I didn't even know the brick-like SRT-10 was capable of 160+
450 HP is capable of enabling stupid things..............
I guy I know was racing up at Brainerd in an SRFord and hit a deer doing about 130! The video was pretty scary--especially with the open cockpit--and he said he was cleaning meat out of the car for days.
That's funny as hell, almost as funny as this :
That's what happens when a bird gets sucked in through a WRX hoodscoop.
