Default I hate birds

Well to top off all the bird poo that has been left on my car the last week today I was coming home from church and was running about 80mph when a stupid bird decided to play chicken with my windshield. Needless to say the car won, but in the process he broke part of my windshield trim on the passenger side. Where do I get replacement trim at? Why don't the darn birds just stay in the air where they belong.

I found the replacement trip at www.buy-oem-parts.com for 44 bucks. Seems like alot of money just for a stupid piece of plastic trim moulding. Looks like it'* junkyard time.

No kidding. I drove 200 miles yesterday on country roads and birds would swoop down in front of the car and one missed the windshild by a foot. The person in front of me had the same problem and was not as luckey.

I've had a few close encounters with large birds. Ask BonneMe, he was behind me both times. A turkey once, and an owl the second time.

That reminds me, last June when I was coming back from Canada a big bird hit my windshield. I don't know what kind of bird it was other than brown and the size of a large duck. It also left a big greasy smear.

yeah, wait until you plant a pheasant in the lower bumper opening. That definitely opens eyes when you pull into to tech inspection at the drag strip (don't ask).
