Hey guys,

I had a little accident with a 150 pound Bambi jumping in front of my Shelby . Bad plan! I think I was only driving about 25mph. Iím sorry for the little guy . The front is totally ruined. It scared the hell out of me.

Did you ever have an animal under or over your car?

By the way, do you guys know a good insurance company? Iím sick of my current one. I heard that Mercury is quite good. Only the site is a little bit strange. Can somebody tell me if this is a good insurance?
Thanks

I remember my brother hit a deer in his mustang, oddly enough he was lucky because the deer went under the car instead of on top of it so he didn't do anything to his car.


Sadly, the deer hopped away with a broken leg

I once hit two birds at the same time. They were flying. Why do the pigeons swoop down in front of cars on the freeway? Has anyone ever noticed them? Oh I was driving around 100mph. It was at the top corner and right above my mirror. There was some powdery stuff on the window afterwards. I also got some feathers in the car. I was driving with the top off.

I hit a deer with my '78 Ford LTD going 80mph... It only busted the plastic turn signal covers. The deer flew probably 20 feet in the air before landing in a heap in the ditch.

BTW bruised deer meat does not taste good. Make it into jerkey or something.

Me and my friend were driving at night the other day and obliterated a racoon. What it was doing in town running along the freeway I have no idea. Never been in a major animal related accident. Mostly just been in the car when animals that were too small to damage it got mangled.
