Default Bribery is a good thing

So,

Now that I have this 95, I didn't want a repeat of what happened to me last year: The idjit plow dude trashed a headlight on me. So.. I was contemplating three routes this year:

1) Threaten the guy who does our street with a baseball bat.

2) Bribery

3) Accept my fate and procure another headlight to prepare for the inevitable.

While I already followed through with number 3, I decided to give number 2 a try as well. Had a nice conversation with the guy last night: "Hey Phil, see that green car? No mounds of snow are going to be on top of it and I'm not gonna need a new headlight this year right?" Oh, here'* a Christmas gift. Phil'* reply, "No snowdrifts this year"

I came out this morning and found he was extra careful around my car. Gotta love capitalism in action.

You could get clear GTS headlight covers and then make some good lookin eyebrows on them.



Or did he break it in some way that the cover won't protect?

If I had a garage do you think this car would be out in the open right now?
