Not to mention, EyeSight might have some issues, there…
Ha, ha, although what I find remarkable is the damage to the hood but so little to the windshield. Maybe the angle means it's a glancing blow rather than a direct hit.

Maybe that's because the windshield on this storm chaser's 2018 Forester has been replaced 4-5 times per year, according to this:

If zombies were real I bet that car would probably still be running, LOL! 120k miles ain't too bad given the conditions it has been through.

Ha, ha, thanks for this! I had tried Tineye but couldn't find the source. The comments are interesting, too...

The down side of the Subaru alloy bonnets. Although nothing would save that car. I have had two of my five Subarus owned in my life in Australia written off to hail damage.
We got a great deal on our car because it had a hail damaged bonnet. All the steel panels and roof, etc were pristine. The dealer replaced the bonnet anyway (y)(y). Some of the Texas hail videos show damaged cars in a dealership lot. Hope the insurance company honours their end.
