Angry FiancÚ 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 fiancÚ 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

The Mrs. still gets to drive the Camaro. I love it dearly but it's still just a car. It can be fixed, the Nissan was.

My sister drove my old 4-Runner a few years back, hit a pole, and didn't tell me. The front bumper was barely hanging on, and when I walked outside I nearly had a heart attack, so I feel ya

Where she was parking at you have to back in off the passengers side off of a small driveway into a stall and the pole was on the opposite side of the driveway if that makes sense. It is a tight fit her mom scratched their navigator at the same place but still...

I'm not saying I'm a gold digger but if a rich ugly woman wanted to marry me and buy me nice things. My left hand would have a ring on it.

I'm not sure what was worse the fact that she didn't tell me or the fact that she thinks it's not something I should be mad about, this coming from the person that is afraid to even let me drive her new car. Thank you c5 for listening to me rant, this is like anger management class

Everyone all at once, "THE CAR!" Glad we all agree, sell the ring, fix the car.

Accidents happen but the fact she didn't tell you would be an issue for me. Most women just don't care about a car but mess up their shoes or handbag and OMG youd think the world ended!!! So glad I'm not a typical girl bc that craps annoying.

these threads always make me laugh..

First it's just a car.. Second you have Insurance.. There is ZERO point in having an argument with your future wife over stuff like this.

Accidents happen and it is a nothing more than a material possession. You cannot put that up against your relationship otherwise the relationship is destined to fail.
