    Thumbs down broken windsheild, and new pics for s&g

    So I was driving to Madison this morning, when a passing semi decided to help me trick out my ride.




    A portion of the windshield (where the top one hit) came falling onto my lap in a hundred pieces.

    And of course, thanks to my deductible this is all out of my pocket. hooray.

    I did not get to Madison btw. I decided that their aweful roads would probably make things worse, and I wasn't far from home anyway.

    If you're interested my camera is a Fujifilm FinePix Z20.

    Dang! Sorry to hear about that but at least you didn't get hurt! Luckily Ford made like 10 million of the Taurus so the glass should be relatively cheap to replace.

    Yeah, thanks. I'm just glad it didn't hit the roof (or the sunroof for that matter). Bodywork sucks.

    Actually what really irks me is that the windshield should only take ~ an hour to replace, which means I can't get a loaner car to review.

    I'm not looking for a car, so I don't feel like wasting the salesperson's time (unless it's something I really, really want to drive).

    I may have to test a G8 though, to see what all the hype is about.

    That sucks man. Was it a rock or something that flew up? Must've been pretty big to shatter it like that.

    Yeah. There was a loud bang and I felt glass bits hit me, I was pretty shaken up. My swearing was louder though.

    A gravel truck driving the opposite way needed to lighten the load a bit I guess.
