Imagine you’re cruising down the highway with the top down on your convertible and then you’re hit in the face with horse manure.

The Saturday, April 8, 2017 photo provided by the police in Dachau shows a convertible car that was hit by a flush of liquid manure in Altomuenster near Munich, southern Germany.

That’s what happened to a father and daughter in Germany who were trying to enjoy the sunshine on Saturday.

Police said the incident happened near the town of Altomuenster, about 30 kilometres northeast of Munich.

A 52-year-old man and his 14-year-old daughter were parked by the roadside when a tractor pulling a trailer of liquid manure swung towards them.

The movement accidentally poured the vehicle’s entire load into their Renault convertible.

The unfortunate family was covered in manure as a result.

To make things worse police confirmed the car was a write-off.

But no-one was injured so not all the news stank.
