I am really sad. While pulling out of my neighborhood the other day, I saw two birds fly by. I never saw where they went, but I did not hear a "thud", so I thought the birds were safe. I drove to work and never noticed, however, this is what I saw when I got home that evening. So gross, he was really "stuck" on.

Did you use the nitrous to do that kind of damage?

No nitrous. I was doing about 40 mph, steady. I had this on film for a few weeks, I just couldn't decide rather to post or not.

Not to be insensitive, but was there any paint damage? :suspense:

My mom in her '81 Fleetwood Brougham hit a bird with the grille. The grille cut the bird up like a cookie cutter. I had to take needle nose pliers and pull the bird out of the grill in three sections. This bird was a sparrow. Your bird is much more prettier.

Eastern Blue Bird.

They are become more and more rare in the eastern United States. Many think that it is because of urbanization and the lack of nesting sights. Try putting up a blue bird house next spring...

Hope the paint was not marred!

I have 7 bird feeders around my house, as well as bird houses. As you can imagine, my wife was mortified. It is not like I could have avoided it, but it has to be my fault anyway.

Man, that color is sweet! Sorry about the poor bird, but it gives a chance to see your beautiful caddy!

Thanks, I got the car because it was a special order and the person hated it when they saw the color in person. I like the color now too, but it took some time to grow on me.

thanks BigJimSHO, but it ain't no black like your car! The V is badass in black, and while my blue is "pretty" in certain light, it is not black.

Looks like the bird must have been doing 150. Poor little guy. Probably admiring your car and got caught up in it all.

I can bet somewhere on the internet that picture will become an "owned" slogan.

Also, I'm really liking that color....ALOT! Well done and an A+ for being original.
