Default how in the **** do people hit stationary objects?

Is it that ******* difficult to park a ******* car? They did not leave a note, although someone did get the plate #. I doubt anything will happen though. My other car has been hit 8 times when parked, with no notes of course. This is the first time for my miata. What an awesome birthday gift.

A good body shop should make short work of that. RUIN the other driver, by the way.

Yeah. I'm in a hotel right now. If the truck is back tonight, I'm going to put nails under all 4 tires (close to the side wall), key it, and possibly break the windsheild...or maybe that's a bit childish.

I'll get someone to do a "paintless" on it.

It sucks to see Miatas become the victims of parking lot damage.

It sucks even more to see that other Miata drivers get to put the top down in February.

As Savington said, RUIN them, but the way I'd do it is by getting a few estimates and going to them with the highest one.

You can't push that from the inside. That there my friend is a double hull area of the car. It has to come out from the outside of the car.

Sorry to see that happen to you . But, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you anyway HUSTLER!!!!!!!!!!!!

Plenty of ******** out there.
If the person who got the plate number will stand up for you, call the cops and go for his insurance co. You can get fixed and he can pay higher premiums for a few years.

if someone got the plate # it should pan out, happened to my buddy twice that way and both times the police and insurance worked to get payment.

speaking of people hitting stationary objects....

I got rear-ended yesterday morning at 4am while sitting at a stoplight waiting for it to turn green in my 06 Chevy HHR. And I was the only car at the light, in the middle lane of a 3 lane wide road. Some ****** in a 95 Bonneville "didn't notice" my car and just slammed the brakes and nailed me.

When he got out of the car the first thing I saw was his ****-eyed hat and GOLD teeth and I think "wonder if this ignorant **** even has insurance" :rollseyes: Good thing is it only screwed up the bumper on my car but damn near totaled his! hahaha

the police were called 7 hours ago. I'm just going to get this ******'s address and go kill him.

I'm going to be so ******* pissed if I have to get this car painted again...the paint is only 6 months old.
