Goo gone?

Actually I don't know if that's safe to use on a car's finish... But it very well might be.

Turpentine or Goof Off(it won't harm factory paint, but might harm home paint jobs)

I tried WD40, soap, pledge, windex but they didn't work.

Damn trees in my driveway keeps dripping on my cars.

Is it normal for pine trees to leak that much sap? The branches and trunk are coated with sap all year long it seems.

You can use anything on your windshiled though. Even Chem-dip, carburetor and brake cleaner.

Use Bug & Tar remover, I think it's made by Turtle Wax. Any auto parts store will have it. If it's dried on, you might have to hold a cloth wet with it on the sap to soften it.

Yes, it is normal for a pine tree to "leak" like that.

This has always worked for me, even when we had to park under under some huuuge Maple trees.
