ADD MY CAMARO TO THE DAMAGED FILE

OMG I AM CRUSHED.

I was driving into work sunday night and about half way to work it just starts downpouring rain. So i was going slow and taking my time with my new baby. So i get all the way to my work and am going up the hill in the driveway and up and all of a sudden BAM. I was like WTF it felt like i ran something over and bent a rim so i pulled it right into the visitors lot and get out look at the tire real quick it was up and fine. so i start walking back down the hill to see what i hit and dont see anything and all of a sudden i step on something and i pick it up and its a license plate and i look at it and its not even mine. then i see something under my car so i walk back up the hill to see what it is and its this huge cone shaped object under the front of my car. its black and made of ashpalt so its SOLID. i tried pulling it out and couldnt budge it so i back my car up and get out and look at the damage and i wanted to cry. The drivers side of the front fascia is all crushed back in the shape of the cone the bottom grill is all snapped out of place. so i drive it around back of the lot and park and go in to talk to my boss about it. i was gonna try to drive her home but as i was on with onstar i see the temp get up to 205. so i shut it off and arrange for a tow. So now the fascia is wrecked and it also took out my radiator as when i woke up i went outside and my radiator had emptied onto my driveway. so now i am waiting to hear from my companys human resources department to see if they are going to do anything about it. clearly two people had hit it before me as the sign part was well down the driveway on the incoming side so someone had to have hit the sign part on their way out. some guy on nights saw the thing at the last second and swerved but it was to late he took out the radiator in his truck to. I just wanna cry here i have this beautiful new car and its wrecked and i cant drive it.

Man that bites dude. So after reading your post I think your trying to say you hit a downed street sign / signpost? My previous car was a SUV and everysince I bought this badboy I've had to rewrite my level of attention to the road.... I find myself slowing down like a grandma for like every damn bump, rr tracks, manhole covers, landmines, etc.....

they put signs in the driveway to my work which say caution drive slow. the sign is flourescent yellow but the problem is someone had already hit it and the yellow part of the sign and pole was gone all that was left was the solid asphalt base. its a cone shape as you can see from the indentation on my fascia. its solid asphalt or painted concrete so that it wont blow away. i do keep my eyes out but it was a torrential downpour and add that its a black base on a blacktop driveway at night with not much light.

the three of us hit it all the same night. the first person had to have hit it leaving based on where the yellow sign and pole were down the driveway.

Holy crap bro! Not yours too! I'm still waiting on parts for mine :/ but dammmn I don't want to see any more camaros hurt, especially nyers, especially from steve's group. URGGHh! I think your company definitely has liability here. It was there job to maintain the sign and they didn't. Best of luck man keep me updated!

Ouch! I feel your pain bro! Had to have 2 dings fixed on mine. Obviously not to the extent you have, but when she's damaged so early on and you know it, it just drives you frickin' nuts doesn't it? Hope you get her back in action soon!

sorry to hear that man. Hopefully she gets fixed real soon. I wouldve been crushed too.
I was driving, took a right turn and right in front of me off to the sidewalk is a huge old tree. Im about 25feet away and all of a sudden a huge massive branch just drops in the middle of the lane i was in. But i had enough time to check for other cars and swerve. But if i was 2-3 seconds earlier, it wouldve crushed me
