My dad hit a cow with his VW Bug at 45 mph--broke the floor pan in half just behind the pedals. He drove it home, all the while this feet were shifting left and right in relation to his body. He was in Mexico going to Med school and didn't have money. Had he stopped, the police would have fined him (they think all Americans are rich).
He then took it to a "body shop" where they took a rubber mallot and pounded the roof back out. They then hooked a chain around the front bumper and a tree and proceeded to back up repeatedly in order to "straighten" the body
They then replaced the hood, bumper, and front axle, and welded the floorpan back together. That became the car I learned to drive on...and I eventually inherited it as my first car--but not before my older sister pulled out in front of a car (T-bone on the drivers side door), backed over some railroad ties (there went the rear fenders and the rear aprin) and pretty much trashed the 4 speed transaxle and the engine. By the time I got it, it was using a quart of oil every fillup--at 15 mpg. I eventually replaced the engine with one out of a '73 bug.
I have personally encountered one deer, several turtles, a raccoon, a dog, a cat, several small rodents, several birds (one punched through my grill and flattened my radiator fins), a UPS Truck, some snakes, and had a near miss with 15 pigs that decided they wanted to sun on the back side of a small hill in the middle of a country road (while driving an International Harvester straight truck).
What can I say...look out, here I come.
BTW, none of those were intentional. I drove truck for a living, so the chances of me hitting something were increased by the sheer number of hours and miles I was on the road
Can we find an emoticon with a VW backing up while hooked to a tree?
