Man, I can sympathise with all of these stories. I have never seen a car get nailed as often as our new Bonnie! Our old GP never got damaged by anyone but us in the 5 years we owned it, but in the year we've had the Bonnie (less, 10 months really) we've been whacked 3 times I know of.
First we came down to where we park (a bank parking lot because our apartment building has no parking) and found a nasty black scrape on the nose. We were so p*ssed because we had only had it a few weeks and we thought the paint was scraped off (turns out it was the paint of whoever hit us left on our car...he he he
Then I was waiting at our bank (the one we do business at, not the one we park at nightly) while my hubby was cashing a check and a guy in a beat up old sedan pulled up next to us. I didn't take much notice until he threw open his door...BANG...right into ours! It was pretty hard; it actually rocked the car. Thank God for solid Bonneville construction...no damage.
The amazing part is that he didn't even look at me right after he did it; he just went into the bank and ignored the fact that he might have damaged my car!
The most recent time happened this past week. We came down to that bank parking lot again and there was red paint all over the driver'* side of the nose. (It'* still there...we'll have to get some bug and tar remover for that, it worked like a charm last time).
I love this car though...every time someone hits us they lose their paint and we have no damage!
...we have to stop parking at banks though...bad luck or something.
