Default Bad Things you've seen done to YOUR car

Post bad stuff that you've seen people do to your car, can be anything, serious accidents don't really count.

I'll start.

A couple of months ago, I went to get a slice of pizza at my favorite pizza place. I purposely park away from the main entrance because people that go there are usually in their early teens and drive like d-bags. So I'm sitting in my car, eating my pizza and some d-bags, out of all the empty spaces in the lot park right next to me, nice and snug (on the passenger side of the car). They go get their pizza slices and when they come up, d-bag driver basically lets the wind open his door for him (can't put the pizza box on the roof, too much work), thus planting a firm "THUD" on my passenger side front door.

He knew what he did because he paused and looked to see if I was paying attention, but before I had realized it he sped off before I could see his plates. Luckily there's no dent on the door, only a small surface scratch that's barely visible. I think after weeks of washing and waxing, I've managed to get rid of that scratch.


Anyways, tell your stories!

Can't wait for Conner's post

Um, fused it to a mailbox, tortured the Silverado with plowing, burned many a tire, smoked curbs, just general beating and haven't given it the break it deserves at 220k miles

You should treat it to a clay and wax . Or just keep whipping it, so it knows who's boss.

LOL...

Lets see, had someone open a door into my front bumper and screw the paint up, had my front bumper taken damn near all the way off in a parking lot, had it sideswiped while parked outside my house, had to drive off a curb to avoid being backed into, had someone pull out in front of me causing me to swerve and land in a sign post... and that's just in the Thunderbird.

The sideswipe incident...

I came out a drug store one day to find a woman trying to get out of the parking stall next to me car. She was backed in with my car on her left and only needed to drive out and turn the wheel, instead she just turned the wheel left and gassed it. I saw her driver's door get creased as drove against my front bumper corner. She didn't see that I was watching as she was obviously p!ssed that she damaged HER car. So she now turns the wheel RIGHT and backs up, digging my bumper deeper into her door. I am now standing about 10 ft away watching. She then turns the wheel LEFT and again tries to drive out ripping the rubber cap off my bumper as her car grinds harder against mine. She rolls down her window and looks super p!ssed now. I tell her this is my car and does she need her getting out of the parking stall. After some profanity she commented that it was no big deal that my bumper and end cover were damaged and tried to drive off. I told her that I had her plate number and I was going to call my insurance company. She stopped and now was really super p!ssed at me. She offered me $20 for the damage. I worked at the car dealership and knew that the bumper end was over $80 my cost, not to mention that the bracket inside the bumper was broken. She told me she didn't have that money on her and I should go to her place and pick it up. So I got her number and address and told her what time I would be there.

I showed up and her boy friend was there, a much bigger guy than me. He argued that the damage wasn't that much, I was only asking for the cost of the part and I would fix the bumper bracket myself. After some discussion he offered me a personal check, ya right! I got up and walked towards the door saying I would just go through the insurance. Then he reached in his pocket and tossed $80 at me.
