I wish my car shone like Merle's does in the photo at your
site. Mine looks good, but not /that/ good. "Disgustingly
free of rust" indeed. :-)

Driving on a mountain road yesterday, I saw a car with a rock about 18" in
diameter resting on its hood. It was partially into the windshield, but
this rock, which I would guess weighed a couple hundred pounds, was just
sitting there. The car was parked in a turnout on the side away from the
hill, making it just a little bit more intriguing, since the rock didn't
fall onto it at that particular spot.
I wonder how this came to pass. The car didn't appear damaged anywhere
except right under the rock. Did someone see the rock tumbling down the
cliff and came to a stop right under it? The timing of it all... another
second sooner, and the car would have crashed into the rock. A little
different bounce and it might have come through the driver side.
It seems like the car would have to have been stopped, or nearly so, or the
rock would have gone through the windshield.
I wish I had taken a picture of it.
