Vandalism to my 5thgen.

I am a 8 dollar an hour worker most my life but I was in the right place at the right time 10 years ago at a labor agency. I wound up fast forwarded through line leading and team leading into management and made enough to **** near pay off my trailer and get a down payment on this dream car. I work so very hard on getting jobs for people who, without the coaching and daily inspection would otherwise be unemployable. It's way tough with economy like it is. I had a tough time this weekend; was "tough love"ing a couple of guys that either need it or are just traveling down their path shoving everything in their way aside with hate. I spent 70 hours this past week trying to create openings for people as I've been doing for this past decade and I went outside to leave for the day and my car had been keyed scratched. Proving it is one thing; looking for revenge is pointless. Dealing with it and affording a high tech alarm system are the best alternatives. I'm always going to be subjecting VictORia to this parking situation. Owner has one camera, we're going to be looking at it tomorrow morning, not sure if it records or not as of yet. I'm just sad is all, I love my wife and kids and grandkids. When conversation is materialistic, VictORia is the top of my list for my whole life. I drive her through a sunny, warm breezy day or two feet of snow and I guess I've now typed enough to say to myself, scratches and hateful actions are not new to the world and VictORia is no exception just because she's at the top of my list. thanks for reading.........I tried posting the pic last night and when the computer wasn't set right to allow me, I didn't type this frustration. I'm posting whether pics upload or not tonight.

If you drive a 5thgen, sweet and nice isn't it? If you want to then "just you wait, it's worth it!" If you are as happy driving something else .....no comment

Sorry to hear about that. Unfortunately I have found out that people do terrible things to other people's stuff all the time, sometimes just to be mean and no other reason.

Hope you find out who did it!

I'll second that earlier statement and also say that it could happen to anyone, Camaro.. or in the case of me my 2001 Explorer at a grocery store parking lot.

People are D-bags by nature/design/whatever. Live, learn.. and get some nice sweet revenge if they get caught on tape.

How bad was the key-job that they did? Thank god they didn't do any more damage from the sound of it.

I think your comment is uncalled for I prefer not to name my car but I am not going to put someone down for naming theirs. Sorry to hear about your car Marty. I know how hard you have worked just to keep Victoria

People have named cars for decades. Don't like it? Keep it to yourself
