The crap hit the ...

So I had a couple of days off but the wife had to work,so I hooked the teardrop to the 54 and took a little road trip.First to John Kasse's shop in Winder GA to drool on the Boss 429s,then to Dallas Ga to check out a buddy's 69 F100 project and camp for the night.Next morning over to Doraville's to check out his F1.Left Dallas heading to Honest Charley/Coker tire in Chattanooga, cruising up the interstate about 75 ,windows down just enjoying the ride .Then BAM ,a cardinal committed suicide on my open vent window,feathers ,guts and other stuff exploded into the cab,and on me.I am trying to drive,don't really know what happened for a few seconds, pull off asap stuff is up the windshield,across the headliner ,on the back glass and pass door panel,and a dead bird in the pass seat.I called my buddys to tell them what happened,they cried,not because they felt bad,but because they were laughing so hard.

Sad for the bird but I am laughing too, Kevin. Be thankful it wasn't a turkey or buzzard.

Remember, tragedy+time=humor.

I thought it was bad the couple of times damn bees hit my vent window and landed in my lap. They were stunned but not dead and started to come back to life fairly quickly. Never had a bird hit my truck anywhere.

Yeah, a turkey! My wife hit a turkey about ten years ago in a brand new jeep Liberty and it took out her grill, radiator, condenser, and a bunch of plastic mounts and brackets (she said it look like she hit a feather pillow). It really could have been worse! (still sounds like it was not only disgusting but down right frightening at the same time).

Many years ago I was traveling alone on highway at night and practically nodding off. Not for long..

Suddenly a huge Missouri deer ran right to left just across the front of the hood, missed it by only a foot if that. A second later the huge dog that was chasing came into view, and was not so lucky, watched his head explode against the hood. Try to avoid driving at night.

Kevin my friend that is a case of true misfortune. I was in my 55' this past weekend as well but the trip was not as eventful as yours... Glad it worked out

Kevin, I've had a few things come into the cab but nothing like that, you know us old folks bladders arn't what they used to be. I actually pissed my pants, something I don't ever remember doing, I have never laughed so hard in all my life. You didn't hurt the teardrop did you, I sure would like to hook one of those up to Homade some day, a real thing of beauty, by the way---STILL LAUGHING.

We hit a Canadian goose in a piper warrior once leaving Dupage airport it hung on the wing until we landed two hours later a huge dent in the wing and we were happy it didn't hit the wind shield. Hope you got the mess cleaned up

Now that you've got the little bird out of the way now your ready to try a duck at 65 mph. They just explode when they hit the back of the cab. So many feathers you cant see out the windshield from the inside, and the stink..... Its funny to look back but I found feathers for 2 years after that until I sold the truck. Oh ya... they leave a bad bruise too.
