I've always called them gators, but I'm going to have to make use of this new term now that one cracked my windshield...

As for indestructible bumpers, you guys must be lucky. I hit a *tiny* raccoon at about 60mph a couple years back and it tore through my bumper. Hit the passenger side, went through the fog light hole and tore all the way to the edge. (prefacelift sedan bumper) Gave me a good reason to blow $1k upgrading to the Mtech II bumper though.

Or you know, not. Most of us bought these cars for similar reasons. Ability to do prolonged high speed drives happens to be one of them. (granted, 90mph is laughable under that term, but you get the idea)
