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.

I'd say!!! Man that bank parking lot is cursed or something. I cringe every time I have to park somewhere tight. There'* a lot of people who don't care about anyone else'* car.

But yeah that Bug and Tar Remover is the best!!

I didn't even take a picture of it smashed. lol. Its going to be done today. I guess I can take a picture of where it was hit.

oh yeah, i always park away from everyone, door dings suck! I had a big one right on the drivers door before it got hit. but it got fixed.

Yeah I had this happen to me b4. I was SITTING IN THE freakin DRIVER'* SEAT of my car when this A$$hole is a POS walks up to the side of my car and swings his door open and rocks my whole car, but of corse his door curled from impact (tho he proly couldnt tell with all the other dents on it) and mine wasnt even scratched. He gunned it (but didnt go fast cause his enginne barely ran) I got his lisence plate # and called the cops and they dug up some other stuff on this guy and said this incident was the last strw (probation thing or somthin) and so the suspended his lisence indefinatly (chalk one up for the good guys )

OMG Thanks for this tip. The garage jumped out at me yesterday when i was parking the car (its a little tight with both 00'* in it) and I got some white house paint on the back of the passanger side mirror. Tried for about 10 min with soap and water to get it off....read this...went and got some bug and tar remover and bingo, right off with a little elbow grease.

SImilar story Rogue

One night I was in an underground parking structure, and I made the mistake of attacking a spot at the wrong angle. By the time I realized it wasn't goin to work, I made the decision to sacrifice a scrape on my plastic driver side mirror. I took some white paint with me...lol

Got home, a little Bug and Tar, with some Meguires cream buff stuff. You'd never know that white paint was ever there.

You don't wanna know what we did in the GP trying to get out of an underground parking garage in Boston without paying 25$ (we had just drove in and realized we didn't have the cash and they wouldn't let us drive around it to get out). Suffice to say, we lost the left rear quarter panel and put a nasty gash in the fender.
