i got rearended on my first day going to my new job in Ohio. Look under Watch out for little old ladies under on the road and at the track.. has all the details. Also, i went back to the body shop today and they had my bumper off, it cracked something under there, they had to put a brand new bumper on and i got to see them take it out of the box. the original repair was for 468. and wound up being over 2 g'*! Glad i got it fixed instead of keeping the money. It started sagging worse today and the crease cracked on it so when they called to tell me to bring it in, i was like alright!!

I knew it. thats why I said to have the body shop look at anyway. 2 gs and you would'nt even think it.

Have fun with the rental.

Now normally I would advise AGAINST that type of abuse to a car.
But as long as you have that 'oh so nice' walk away insurance.... have fun

I smoked the tires on an Intrepid, with the ebrake on until they were almost bare.... oh the smoke.... we did 6 MAJOR burnouts... enough to see the smoke from a few streets away....... the car still smelled like burnt rubber inside the next day... lol.

**DISCLAIMER**
Never buy a car that used to be a rental. Everyone abuses rentals.

good for your parents corvettecrazy.

I wouldnt be condoning the non-abuse of rentals except that my car WAS a rental car for the first 27,000 miles of its life. (i think it was only 6 months as a rental) It seems to have been treated decently well, tho it was hard to tell because it proceded to only have 10,000 miles put on it for the next 9 years (still runs great, engine is a bit dirty tho)
