Pretty sure it was the pilot episode. Somebody called about a dead sheep and they wind up finding a body.

Walt: You know what they call a flock of ravens?

Vic: Um, no.

Walt: An "unkindness"... an unkindness of ravens.

Vic: What the hell is wrong with "flock"?

Walt: "Unkindness" is just a little more apropos.

Back in the 80s I was making a demolition derby car; a 60s model Chrysler Newport.

To ready the car all the glass needed to be taken out. After removing a few door glasses, I thought it would be easier to break it out and vacuum it up.

Instead of using a hammer, I had the bright idea of shooting the glass out with my Lorcin 25 Auto. Much more fun, and louder too!

I walked up to one of the remaining door glass, put the pistol about 2 feet from the door, pulled the trigger.

BANG! WHIZZZZ..

The glass remained intact, the bullet ricocheted
off the glass (!) and whizzed by my head.

I put the pistol in my pocket, went and fetched the hammer.

If your car was a rigid as my 67 Newport custom 4 door I bet you did very well.
383" in mine and got 18 MPG delivering Pizza in Moore for Godfathers.
I was running out at the Fairgrounds, back in the day.

I didn't do very well. I did, however, learn how to do well in those types of competitions: enter 3 cars, and work as a unit. Split the winnings.

That's how the winners did it. The team would zero in on each car in turn, and kill it. On to the next.

A single car didn't have a chance.
