Donged a couple of roos gently in the side of the car, was passenger in a Morris 1100 when a horse did the same, worst ever was a pig full on (near Yalleroi) in the 80’s. Took out the radiator in the brand new Kingswood I was delivering to Avis in Longreach. It was that incident and having lots of mates with bent roo bars that convinced me that they were a waste of time - often the cost of straightening them and repairing the panel they’d leaned back on, and the subframe too was more than if there’d been no bar.
So Zillions of miles between T’ville and Longreach and in the Downs country later, I just take it stupidly easy at dusk and dawn, preferably in a cafe somewhere. Nearly hit an emu once - that was a challenge 'cause the rotten thing just charged at the space between the lights.
