Finally home from my trip to Camaro5 Fest V..

Finally home from my trip to Camaro5 Fest V and to my dad's in Florida.

The car made it home fine, but I did have a couple of scary moments in Arizona.

The first was a rock hit to the windshield on the passenger side. The rock hit left a couple of pits but no cracks.

The other scary moment was when a red-tailed hawk decided to do a back flip onto my front windshield and roof at 80mph (see the last 2 pictures).
It was not a comfortable feeling seeing the front windshield deflecting inward during the impact.

I also received another rock hit on the drivers side of the front windshield in California - again a couple of pits but no cracks.

I will begin the bug removal process tomorrow...

That's just the bug coverage between Sealy, Texas and home.

The car had a bunch of love bugs on the front during the drive in Florida, only to be washed of in the heavy rain throughout the drive in Louisiana.

That looks like the average amount of a weeks worth of driving in LA, MS, FL or AL when it comes to bugs.

it's tough to let that car go, after all you two have been through. Great car, always got you where you needed to go, could not ask for anything more.

I know you will also enjoy the new ride. I can't wait to see it in person at the next Fest.
