Angry Fiancé didn't tell me she hit a post with my car...

I just had a coworker run up to me and ask me what I hit over the weekend, knowing damn well I didn't hit anything I thought he was joking... Went out to look and found this: called my fiancé pissed thinking someone at a new complex (just moved this weekend) hit me when she admitted she hit a pole backing up and didn't think it was that bad. Any idea if its repairable or do I have to just get a new front bumper? No denting or cracks that I can see.

Not my Camaro, but the wife drove my Nissan Frontier CC 4X4 into a post and nearly cleaved the front end in two.


I was away on business and she 'forgot' to tell me when I returned....

I feel your pain Richard.

it looks as though the paint is scratched off. which means you would need the whole front bumper repainted, if you want it done right. if you want to "patch" it up, you could get touchup paint.

Yes. Camaro privileges should be revoked.

That's the worst part! For the last year she drive my car more than I did and scratched one wheel all year (which isn't a big deal to me because eventually I'm doing something with mine) we just got her a new car a week ago and this incident happened while just "moving" my car into a different spot, she hates driving the camaro because of how picky I am about it!

As much as everyone will joke around, just remember whats more important, a car or your fiance! My fiance rear ended someone while driving my camaro, I used the opportunity to buy a new SS bumper and upgrade the front end. I see you have an RS, maybe you should consider the same, although your damage isn't nearly as bad as mine was!

probably backing and turning at the same time, and scrapped the front end. basically turning too early
