How'* this for a case of sods law.....
Yesterday afternoon I got home to find my dad had parked in the centre of the drive, so I had had to park my car on the road. It was the first time I had parked the Bonneville on the road for weeks - it usually goes on the drive - and it was only there for a few hours as I was going out that night.
When I left the house that evening, I found a driverless Vauxhall Vectra in the middle of the road, with its front end embedded in my car! There wasn't a soul in sight.
As first I though maybe the Vectra was stolen and that someone had crashed it and run off. Eventually a woman from a nearby house came out and said that car belonged to a friend of her husband and was
parked outside her house - on the opposite side of the road from my house, three doors down. Turns out the owner hadn't applied the handbrake properly!
Typical. First time I leave my car parked on the road for weeks, and this happens.
This was the damage:
The wing has a dent in it which can be removed and sprayed, but it also needs a new side marker/indicator lamp. £258 worth of damage. Bugger!
At least I don't have to have to pay for it. The Vectra owner is footing the bill. Still a pain in the butt though.
