What time of day was it they were on your car? About how big was the body? And, what color?

There are only a couple of flies that could be hatching there right now.
So, yeah - size and color should be able to pinpoint the bug.

Could have been a caddis. Did it have tent shaped wings or were they flat on the body. If they where tent shaped it would be caddis,
flat stone fly, splayed out on top like a house fly midge.

Caddis are possible but I'm thinking brown stone fly. Seems just a tad early for caddis but in warmer springs we've seen good hatches starting mid April.
