Parking Spots

I usually park in the middle of nowhere to avoid potential damage. Today there were only a few spots open at the gym - but I knew this spot was better than most.

That is does. Both a version of black with ground FX and blacked out bow ties. Dude has good taste.

So true. Mini-vans are parking lot hell to park around. About a year ago I saw a woman in a mini-van literally kick open her door and put a 1/2" deep dent into a SUV next to her. She didn't even hesitate and of course didn't bother leaving a note (I left one on her behalf).

OUCH! Five dings - I feel your pain. Hopefully they are minor ones.

The Lexus I had ended up with a gigantic deep dent all the way along both passenger side doors, and a broken side mirror. I was parked in a lot for a sporting event. No note and the car was gone by the time I got there. Very expensive to fix

Some A-hole took out the entire side of your car! That makes me sick just reading about it. Not cool.

Took Stealth out and ran to the Depot earlier today for some supplies and got my usual parking spot. Not one car within 100' - priceless. In retrospect, I should have parked over there against the concrete divider.

I always park in the north 40 if possible. I had a Mazda 3 and was sitting in it when some people parked next to me and flung there car door into my "Brand New" less than two week old car, with me in it I got out and let them have it. They said they did not do it. I then pointed out the paint on my car and theres. I made them stay while I ripped them a new one and demanded payment on the spot. I knew I would get no cash but I made my point. Every time my son gets out of any car I remind him to be carefull.

Three of them are minor, one is so-so that the shop said I can expect 95% improvement on. One, the first one I got months ago and it STILL boils my blood when I look at it, is a doozy right on the body line of the door. He said he's not sure the PDR guy will even try that one ... but if he can get it any better at all, I'm willing to give it a shot. It will be triple the cost, if not more, to detrim the door, repair it and paint it ... and I'd like to avoid that if possible. The part that really gets me is, 2 of them are on the TOP of my rear quarters, like someone DROPPED something on my car. I hope I catch the next person so I can lose my mind on them.
