Hood pins

I'm still not getting how your hood didn't close when you left the oil change shop- and no one noticed it. When the hood is open, it sticks out like a sore thumb.
You may have a bad hood, and due to your lack of mechanical knowledge, could be blaming an innocent party.

At 15-20 miles an hour a cardboard box is going to have trouble popping up off your hood, let alone the hood itself. There's no way going 15 miles an hour your hood popped up with enough force to break loose and smash your windshield and roof. I've seen a Celica hood pop loose at 70 miles an hour and smash the windshield driving behind it in CA, but at 15 mph....

I was skeptical on the speed too... 15mph was about the speed my teenager was going when he spun out.... Yeah right....

I spun out a (no lie) crown vic in my youth below 15 mph. Was making a left turn from a stop in the rain.
