Dom96 Posted April 28, 2005 Share Posted April 28, 2005 Ok, So this past Saturday, I am driving back to the Springs from Greeley with the Wife and twins in the LGT. So far the car has 2200 miles on it and it is our first real road trip in it. Sure we have taken it up into the mountains alot, but not much interstate action. On the way up through Denver, I get my first rock chip in the windshield. It annoys me initially, because I am more used to taking trucks/SUVs on these trips, and the rocks never seem to get up past the grill/leading edge of the hood. But, as the drive goes on, I realize I am in a short little car, that is a kick in the pants to drive and I get over it. Then, on the way back down I-25 (just south of the University exit) something happens that turns my weekend sour. Some moron in a silver Toyota Four Runner is about 15 yards ahead of me doing the posted limit when something comes off his roof. I look to evade but traffic has me boxed in. Whatever it is shatters and large chunks of it impact my Soob. To me, it looks like a really big coffee cup so I am not to worried about it damaging the car, but am insenced by the guys idiocy. Seconds later, another drops, shatters, same story. I am determined to get around this girl (guy in the passenger seat) and luckily she gets over into the middle lane, which is where she should have been to begin with. As I pass, I try to get the couple's attention to tell them there is something falling from their roof, but the quick glance they flash me is apparently oblivious to me hand signals. I speed away and safely return to C-Springs, a little miffed that I didn't take the toll road to avoid all the idiots. When I get home, the wife asks me a simple question, "want to be pissed off now or later?" I say now, and she replies, "go look at your car." The front left fender has two large gouges in it, about 2 inches long by 1 inch depth each. Now I am annoyed. Then I notice a small stream of steam coming from the grill area. Inside the bottom lip, the culprit and the victim are present. A large peice of a corningware dish has punctured my radiator. My poor subie has been victimized by some oblivious couple driving their SUV down the interstate with corningware on the roof! The only thing that makes me more angry than the boneheads that did this, it the fact that I did not get their license plate because I was stupid enough to think that no damage had been done.
