I have had My Camaro since last June and after leaving a meet and greet in Louisiana I ran over a truck tire retread in the middle of the highway which ripped off the front spoiler and pulled the back piece that covers the mufflers away from the body. I should be able to fix it but it still makes me mad. If only I could have missed it but when I came up on it there was no place to go. Just over it.

1500 miles: lawnmower guy scratched my fender with his mower, reported him to INS and no one in my neighborhood has seen him since... and the scratch was fixed $600 later.

4000 miles: 18 wheeler tire blew out in front of me, i avoided at all costs, but a piece left a rubber mark on the passenger door, buffed right out.

7300 miles now and just got a few rock chips i repaired with Langka kit this past week.

I got mine about 1,500 miles in! just a few weeks ago! I was so pissed off because it was a full parking lot and I had to park next to people and someone slammed their door into me leaving a big 'ol paint mark and a ding. Luckily I had it fixed by a paintless dent repair guy 2 days later and it only took him 10 minutes! My car looks new again! :)

I bought my Camaro on June 8th 2009 and in November of 2009 I pulled into the garage, which is a tight fit because my '70 'Cuda is all apart and undergoing a restoration. Well I opened the driver door a little too fast and slammed the shelf that is holding the 'Cuda parts. I got two small chips right down to the metal and had to prime them and then I just painted over the primer with my son's Testors model paint. Very professional, I know, but it is a daily driver anyway. Rob :thumbsup:

Around 3000 miles I noticed a small chip near the passenger side gill, and around 4000 miles I noticed a small chip on the front part of the hood.

When I bought my new Vette back in 1980, I let my girlfriend drive it home from the dealer and upon arriving at home she ran it right into the garage door! Eh...sorry babe, but you gotta go...

Got my first ding a week ago. Dog jerked the leash right out of my hand and the reel hit the right fender just ahead of the door. Can't hardly see it but I know it's there.

Around the 700m mark. Pulling up next to an office and this old lady in a
long-ass oldsmobile made a wide right turn. I tried to jump him up onto the sidewalk, but I was at an angle the tires wouldn't cut and they just popped down the curb. So it was either the curb or her clipping my front end, lesser of the two evils. Still felt like somebody pulling the skin off my back! And everyone I went around for 2 days paid for her dumb ass driving!!

Then I talked to a friend of mine who is going to be painting his stripes on him and he told me that he could fix it. I love him now....and my husband completely understands.
