Default got a call from the sherriff friday...

Well, my parents got a call from the sherriff up here asking if I was home. They said no I was in rochester. the person then asked if I drove a white bonneville. They said yes. He then told them someone had hit my car and files a police report and he was calling to get a hold of me.

Well, thursday I had gotten home from work and was working on the Impala with my roommate trying to ghetto time it and while we were taking a break, I looked at the driver'* rear and noticed someone hit my car. I tried to remember if it was my fault and came to no conclusion.

So when my dad told me this, it finally clicked. so Ihave to call the sherriff to get the other person'* info so I can claim it. No pictures yet though. They got the bumper cover (my new one) a little bit behind the tail light and the edge of the spoiler. doesn't look too bad, but the bumper is down to the plastic in spots and the spoiler has a nice line on it.

My goof on the Frankie. No coffee when I posted. I had just been looking some stuff up on Frankie and had it stuck in my mind.

its the curse......


I am impressed that they actually called about it and that you can do something about it now. I've never heard of someone actually reporting it before, although sometimes I have heard of them at least leaving their info.

Hopefully you'll get it fixed up like new in no time.

I have a picture finally. I cleaned up the area when I washed it, so it isn't as bad as when it first happened.
