Found him on my car, after I left starbucks. He stood latched on through out an 80 MPH highway ride, as he was still on my hood when i pulled in at my house! I am currently assuming he is a new breed of superman spiders! hehehehe

Oh, and he was about the size of a dime, maybe a lil bigger length wise.
