A big dent and a missing 'R'

Hello everybody,

Finally, I joined this forum today. I hv been looking for some or the other information with regards to my Camaro and I came across this forum.

It so happened today that I found this (refer to attached pics) on left side of my car :( after I drove back home from work. I guess my car is still under Chevy Warranty and I was wondering should I inform the Chevy Service Center/Dealership first or inform the Insurance guys first? Whoever did this to my car didn't even care to leave a sorry note nor any contact info. I guess this must have happened in my office building. I am super upset :(

C.J.

You should call your insurance. Chevy isn't going to warranty accidental damage.

Thanks guys for your quick replies. It just struck me that I can ask the security guys or the property manager at my workplace to go thru tapes from last 2 days to see if they find something? Coz I know Insurance guys will ask me if there were any security cameras and also if I report it to the PD.

Yes report it to the police dept. They may not let you have a copy or look at the security tapes. The police might have to get it.

^^This. That and most insurance companies will want a police report. Best of luck catching the bastard. I think we'd all like to see some justice served to these hit and run jerks for once.

Sorry you are having to deal with this. I know I would be heartbroken. Hopefully you can get the guilty person identified & dealt with appropriately & your baby fixed up good as new ASAP. But, it good that you found Camaro5. This is a great place to learn most anything you want to know, meet great Camaro comrads & just hang out. Beware of Modification Fever though. It is very contageous & there is no cure, just group therapy here daily. Welcome aboard. Get that permagrin maker fixed up & keep us posted. See ya around the forum!

One of my neighbors children chipped my windshield. The father came to my door with tears in his eyes. Those are real people.

Sucks that someone ran out.
If they have cameras I imagine they will pick up the plate.

Too bad you found Camaro5 this way, but this site can help you out in more ways than one. Make sure it gets fixed correctly. Look it over closely before you pay. I can't remember the last time I had auto body work done and didn't send it back for a redo, even when I warn them I'm gonna be paying attention.

Insurance, it's considered a hit and run. Happened to me as we'll not that long ago. Good luck with getting it fixed!
