Driving top-down is probably one of the most joyous experiences for any convertible owner. We’ve had our share of fun when the Audi A3 Cabriolet drove into our garage for a weekend. But driving top-down also has its own drawbacks. You’re no longer cocooned into the safety of a roof, enjoying the cool breeze from the air-conditioner. A German family had a tough time on what was supposed to be a leisure ride when their Renault Megane Coupe-Cabrio was flooded with manure.
No, cows haven’t started flying yet.
The incident took place near the town of Altomuenster, where a 53-year-old man was enjoying a drive in his Megane Coupe-Cabrio with his 14-year-old daughter. They were parked on the roadside in their hardtop convertible with the roof down when they were hit by manure from a passing tractor. The driver of the tractor suddenly swerved to avoid an impact which caused the tank filled with dung to spill in the convertible. The car is said to be a write-off as the damage caused by the spillage was too severe.
So if you think that you’re having a bad Monday, think again. I mean, as bad as your day maybe, remember that someone lost their prized possession to dung.
