Default [email protected]&$^@ Vandals

MRsCrzys Bonneville was parked at the curb overnight. When she left this morning to take our kids to school, she called from just several blocks away to tell me the car wasnt riding right. When she got to the school, she called back to tell me the back drivers tire was totally flat. I went over there to help change it, and noticed the 3 neat knife punctures in the sidewall! Tires have less than 5k miles on them.

Tire shop was out of our size, its on the donut till monday. Dont know why people gotta do this crap.

Tonight though, both twins are safely locked away in the backyard, fenced and padlocked. Just PO'ed and gotta vent.

When I was a kid, the next door neighbour kid dared me slash a tire as I watched him slash 1 but I was 'too chicken'. I think I was 12 then.
Later on in life I got married, kids of my own and joined a great car club
He commited suicide after he got addicted to cocaine at age 24.

Not sure theres a connection but what goes around comes around

Had that happen to me, but I think that it was a case of mistaken identity. Someone couldn't tell the difference between a black Grand Am, and a black Bonneville in the dark, until they flattened one of mine. The "real victim" lost all 4.

I've had 12 tires slashed in one year back when my kids were in school and having problems with other kids Luckily Sam'* Club covered them under the roadside hazard and I was only out my time and aggravation. I know how you feel... you feel like strangling some SOB

ugh, thats such bullshit. i am so glad that i live in an area where i can leave my car unlocked with my cell on my dash and laptop on my seat overnight and come back to find them in the same place i left them. this place does have alot of drawbacks, but heck, thats one serious plus.

hope you find em and take em out (i would invest in a hidden night vision security camera or something, thats what i would do)

Im leaning with mistaken identity or randomness. Its a small town, but bored folks walk around at night with nothing to do. I wish it was safe enough for me to leave stuff in and unlocked. However its kinda neat to look out the window here and see the eyes of the twins staring at me thru the darkness, kinda like a cat

We have wanted to build a driveway and eventually a garage back there anyways. half our neighbors already have them so why not me too. At least they will be safer. Downside, it will look like no one is ever home

That'* why I couldn't live in town. Nighttime in Elberton is when all the crackheads like to come out. I live out in the boonies. You can't even tell what my car is from the road. And even if somebody tried coming up in the yard, my dog stops em. I doubt anyone would want to vandalise my car anyway. It came to me pre-vandalised.

The ONE night that I parked my old '93 lumina out on the street (and left it unlocked, after all, it'* a '93 lumina), someone came along and stole my sunglasses RIGHT OUT OF THE CAR. What'* the matter with people?

My cars live in the garage.
