That's just it. Why did he creep down the street like that, in his really nice car as you indicated, right through a crowd of very agitated counter protestors? That's nuts if anyone wants to keep their car from getting damaged and it just doesn't make any rational sense. What we do know is that he originally drove down to Charlottesville to join the Alt-Right rally and he had
to know that the people on that street where he was driving were counter protestors (they did have signs indicating that) who were very, very worked up and very likely to strike his car with an object. Either he's an absolute complete idiot, or he intended to ram people from the start, the condition of his car be damned, and all he needed was the provocation of some bone-headed lefty protestor striking his car to turn himself into some sort of Nazi hero.

Ferno, you know that the protestor's hit made a very load noise inside the car, so the driver didn't have to see it hear it. Don't you think that the noise may have made the driver panic, just a little? And before you stomp on me, I also find it very unlikely that a loud noise like that would have made him freak out and step on the gas and accidentally
run over a bunch of people he could clearly see in front of him. If he'd been rational, he would have started backing up slowly in order to get out of the situation. Maybe when he eventually backed up at high speed in a effort to escape the angry mob after he hit all those people, THAT was due to self preservation, but I'm betting that original intention for driving down that street was to do something provocative.
