"Through the windshield" picture thread

How about some pics taken out the window while driving (or riding)? Or if your truck is not on the road yet, get behind the wheel and have some one take a pic of you "driving"....
Post up your pics!!!!!!

I'll start......last weekend we took a little cruise through Glacier National Park. Great scenery, a little smoky but still a beautiful drive!

Is that Flathead Lake? I was watching the sun go down over that lake from the Bob Marshall Wilderness area in 1968 when I was supposed to be hunting deer.

It is one of my fondest memories. Except the the sun was going down, and I was miles from the truck!

It is sad to see them go! I do have a question - is that flame coming out of the exhaust? On the right just below the bumper in the first pic and the on the left in the second pic.

Here's one of Pegysu on the way back from the Smokey Mountain F100 show. The sky opened up and just poured downed on us and my wipers pooped out.

How about a video. I apologize though. I get excited and mis-speak. It has a dash but no speedometer and gauge cluster and later I mention dash again when I mean grille.
