    At least we have the answer to the publisher's question:

    What happens when Road and Track meets Field and Stream?

    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.

    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.

    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 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.
