The disc hits the air dam, bounces off the frame and is run over by a tire, which ultimately flings the disc back on to the grass.

My question is, is it a 'fair disc' or does it bouncing off the truck make it OB somehow? This may be a stupid question, bu I'm asking out of dumb curiosity, we've never had a car obviously alter where a disc lands, or actively turning what would've been an OB shot into a non OB shot.
In bounds.

The only thing that matters is where the disc ends up and comes to rest. If it comes to rest in bounds, it's in bounds. Think of it this way...if you threw a shot that went into an OB area and hit a tree that caromed the disc back in bounds, would you question it? The truck in this case is no different than that tree. Your partner got a lucky break.
