SAM Schaefer's greasy windscreen will make you think twice before wishing your car was a "chick magnet".

The Chinchilla Bottlemart employee was left hot and spicy under the collar when a bucket of the Colonel's finest was smeared over his ute during a recent night shift.

The chicken attack came after a smorgasbord of vandalism in Chinchilla with complaints of cars being smeared with hamburgers and pelted with eggs in the past weeks.

Sam was leaving his shift at The Village Travel Centre when he discovered the mess vandals had made of his "pride and joy".

"I'd just had such a good day at work and then I walk out the door and find chicken all over my ute," he said.

"They had thrown at least a bucket of chicken, smeared it on the windscreen and left pieces all over the tray.

"Not one other car had been targeted, but mine was covered in chicken and bones."

Sam was sure the poultry pelters would be caught but was angered again when he found out his car was parked just out of CCTV range.

Aside from the hard-to-remove grease stains on his car, he was appalled at the blatant waste of good KFC.

"Of course I love the stuff. Probably a bit less now, but it's still pretty bad to see good chicken wasted," he said.

The P-plater's mates saw the funny side of the deep-fried crime, but Sam said he was not laughing.

"I want them to be found so they can wash the car," he said.

"I've done the windscreen, but the rest is waiting for whoever did this."

Chinchilla Police warned they were on the lookout for guilty persons with greasy fingers.
