I'd be just a tad more than upset if it was my Ford.

I am not sure what he is practising for, Maybe someone starts shooting at him a car pulls up in front of him. The person in the car winds down both windows and gets out , he then shoots the bad guy through the rolled down windows. I can see how that could happen.

My truck is too tall,I'd have to shoot through the doors to shoot a BG on the other side,or I could just lay down and shoot his legs.

Maybe a riot. Maybe a zombie outbreak. But then we should all just head down to The Winchester, grab a punt and wait for the whole thing to blow over.

Never know it might increase the value. You could say they were making a new Cobra version of the Steve McQueen "Bullet" as a limited edition.

Or even a light weight fram and some cardboard with a cutout. But who woul want to clutter up the bed of the truck when you could just shoot through it.

#1, a Ford don't care if it is shot. It keeps on going.

#2, that Chevy looks to have bald tires and is probably a range fixture anyway.

#3, Cars are lousy cover (aside from the engine block)

Ya ha ha! You're funny, doc.

I wouldn't do it for a variety of reasons.
The noise, compression, and burning
gases in an enclosed space, for starters.
