Oh somehow I thought you knocked a bird down and it landed on your car but I see you hit it while driving.

Warm soapy water works awsome on dirty cars.  Rinse it with fresh water after ok.

There wasn't that much left; just some scraps stuck to the windshield.

Give me a break; I got in at midnight from a 570 mile drive that was part of a 20 hour workday.  ( It was an interesting trip, Montana threw everything it had at me; a 40* temperature drop, an ice storm, 50 mph winds, two snow storms, a pheasant, rain, etc. )

I do see what you did thar . . .  Big smile

. . . and I didn't see it coming.  I was driving into the sunrise while taking a curve and there was a brief shadow* flashing in front of the vehicle and the windshield exploded.  Trying to stay on the road when looking at the sun refracting through the cracks definitely got my heart-rate up.





*Only knew it was a pheasant** from the body parts that were still stuck to the windshield.
**A stealth ninja pheasant based on the fact I didn't see it and it did attack with the sun to its back.

While you deserve it for screwing the American working man by buying Japanese, I always thought those Hondas were perhaps one of the worst looking cars around until the Nissan Puke rolled around.

I own an Element and agree that they are very ugly.  I only got it because it was a very good deal.  However, the utility of the vehicle combined with the ride, the reliability and the fact that it reminds me of driving a Jeep Wrangler (which I like and have owned quite a few of) would make me ignore the ugly and buy a new one when this one needed replacing if Honda was still making them.



Oh, and they are about 85% U.S. content.



And I do believe that USAF won this thread with his comment.


Edited edition:  Bad puns aside, it did fowl up my glass pretty bad.  It hit hard enough to shatter the inside layer of glass which resulted in me catching a spray of pieces in the face.  I had to pull two small slivers out the left side of my face.  (Nothing serious, just annoying.)

I like the elements. I could care less what they look like.

I also like the Pontiac Aztecs. Uglier than sin, but versatile. But at least you can call it the Heisenberg mobile.

Basically I don't buy a vehicle for looks.

I used to hunt pheasant like you, then I took a guineafowl to the grill.

Damn thing flew away afterwards. Looking at R3000 in damage.

Glad you safe.

USAF- Nice.

When we drove through Montana, all we hit was about 30 million bugs. Sounded like it was raining.

Birds do a hell of a lot more damage than you'd expect huh? Glad you're okay though.

One of my 5 year old granddaughters calls it "the spacemobile."  (I blame her dad.)

This.

I hit one of those (or something similar--we call them prairie chickens) up here about three years ago with the CRV I was driving at the time.  Went through the grill and took out my AC condenser.  Repair cost was $2 more than the deductible.

I've seen two summers (one in Montana and one in South Dakota) where the locusts were so bad on a cross-state trip that traffic actually had to slow down in places because the interstate was slick from the crushed ones.

A big "thank you" to all well-wishers as I am quite happy I am okay as well. 

By the time I managed to get out of the shoulder part of the seat-belt and see around the break I was no longer following the contour of the curve in the road and was instead on the shoulder and headed for a steep drop-off.  The Element's AWD impressed me.  I had let off the gas as soon as the windshield was hit so had slowed a bit but was still moving at a pretty good clip on the gravel shoulder.  When I steered back on course the vehicle just dug in and went where I wanted--the truck tires the previous owner put on it probably helped with that.

Drive the rest of the way home with it? or get towed out?

Several years ago, a buddy of mine and I were driving home from work in his truck. I had my hand out the window when I heard a "THUNK!" and saw feathers everywhere. I had him pull over, and found that two ruffed grouse had come out of the woods and slammed into the side of the truck, inches from where my hand had been resting- you could see the small dent and chipped paint right next to where my pinkie was. The two birds had broken their necks and were dead on the side of the road. We left them there, though looking back, I don't know why.
