My guess would be a lawn chair, cooler of some other item got bounced off your car in the crowd. Chef-Bevis has a 5" scratch on his passenger b pillar also. How ever it got there nobody will ever know but the one that did it. Sady this happens at big events. Now if the offender would have only brought it up to the owner as quick as they could locate them. I don't think we would have stoned him in the parking lot.

As for the shifter I would guess it got scouped up and tossed out or is buried in somebodys truck or under a seat. There were parts all over when I walked by in the dark and you guys were trying to pack things into cars for the night.
(Don't mean to stir the pot)

If it makes you feel any better, I got 7 dents in my fenders at the fest and a door ding at the hotel.

Thank god for the dent king! He fixed all of them at the fest.

As macrackie said, I'm guessing a chair. Sucks.! 7000 mile 2010 thats yet to he driven in the rain. It may not look specail compared to some of the others but it is something i've worked towards my entire life. I wish people were more careful. My 5 & 8 year olds didn't wreck anything.

What hotel did you stay at? Could this have happened at the hotel? I cannot imagine anyone at the fest doing this. Too much brotherly love flowing for this kind of crap. I'm sorry this happened.

Wow that sucks. I remember seeing you doing the dash in the parking lot. Pretty cool. But from one young guy to another, that truly sucks. Whether it was an accident or whatever, I can tell you put a lot of passion and pride in your car. I would be on a man hunt if that happened to my car and I only have a 4th gen!

they will definetly cover it but you are going to be out your deductible... might be less just to get it fixed, cause it might raise your rates...

Richie, see my response in Ofer's breakdown thread.

That really sucks and you don't deserve that happening to you. Unfortunately, some people have no morals and others are victimized by their actions.

Hope you enjoy your new dash and get that big scratch taken care of.

See you at BBOMG4!

So sorry to hear that man. I hope the jackass that did this will burn.
For someone to steal the shifter they had to know how to remove it and that it's an aftermarket piece. I personally think it was a fellow camaro owner. Just my 2 cents

On another note, take some pics of that dash. I would love I see it and possibly trade up to it. Pm any details I should know

Totally sucks. Hated to hear the shifter part this morning but keyed too? Dammit.

Try the spring in the old shifter you had before. Hopefully it works. (though, something is telling me you already told me it wouldn't)

What you have here is a case of the PQs. I sent you that shifter so my bad carma must have came too.

Damn Richie that sucks dude, sorry to hear about that. I hope you get a lead on who might have done it, but it probably happened while no one was around. Hope you get it taken care of easily. Glad the dash came out well, I was hoping to see it after you got it back together. - Dan

That really sucks. You seemed like a cool guy working hard to get the car put back together. Even if Ofer didn't appreciate the flashlight work, you still did not deserve that. I hope everything gets sorted out and you find your shifter.

Sadly it happens all too often even at Camaro events. Every single one i have been to , involved in or know others who attended have resulted in someones car damaged.

Things i hate most are people walking between cars with chairs, coolers and the most dreaded shade tents that suddenly launch across the lot like a scud missle bent on destruction.

Hope you get it fixed like new.

Probably someone walking by your car with something sharp. Purses are terrible in this regard. I stopped entering my cars in shows long ago due to the fact of some not being careful or respectful. Sorry that happened to you.
