Camaro hit in work parking lot... again

I don't know what it is with people. I had a 2012 2LT/RS that some one clearly opened their door open hard and dented my passenger door in my work parking lot (it's a very small lot).

I bought a 2013 2SS/RS in August of 2013 and 1 month later someone shot it with a paintball when I was driving home and then a couple days later someone put a huge quarter sized gouge in the front of my driver side right above where it says CAMARO.

Now I took my Camaro out of my garage for the first time since October last night so it's been less than 24 hours. I go to leave work today and I see it... Someone hit my Camaro in the front and left.

What the hell is it with me and Camaros?

Sorry about your misfortune. Does your workplace have cameras that are directed towards the parking spaces?

No my company doesn't care about anything except for monitoring the employees inside of the building.

I can't fix anything, I suck at anything car related. I wouldn't even know what to do.

I work for AT&T.

May I suggest a dash can, it would have caught the culprit on video?

best estimates are from a shop. I have been verbally quoted at 600 to re-paint my front bumper at a reputable shop. I'm not gonna hold my breath to really get that price though

Someone hit my Camaro in the parking area at work last week too... No cameras there either. Only about 80 people work in the building and they're always touting what a familial environment we have....have some respect and own up to crap like this people!

Sounds like you need a new job and a dash cam! lol

Sorry they keep beating up your cars. People are so disrespectful these days.

Don't feel so bad less than one week after bringing mine home I got rear ended then just 24 hours later someone hit me while I was parked and scuffed up the front fender by headlight.

The diffuser in the back got a small dent right by the plate but I am going with Quad tips so got to get a new diffuser anyways. The scuff up front used scratch remover and you can barely see it. I guess cars are just attracted to things we love to baby

Man, that sucks. Is there someone at work that dislikes you, or is it an area that kids cut through the lot? Those marks almost look like kick marks to me. But, yeah... get a dash cam and bust their ass.

Nah I work with 9 other people it's a small ATT store. No kids hang around there, it's a free standing store. We have windows across the front of the store but no one saw anything. I work in the back of the store or else I'd be watching my car like a hawk all day.

How would I go about installing a dash cam (any recommded models) that I could have running all the time when the car is off? I wasn't kidding when I said I don't know anything about cars lol

I keep trying to scroll to the left side of your car. But the images don't display it. Can you back up a bit?

That sucks man, sorry about that. I always park my car far away from other people and make sure no other cars are around when I park. But the thing I hate is coming outside and seeing someone parked next to my car. I check whatever side they park at to see if there are any dings or dents before I leave.

But I was expecting a dent or something real bad! Most ppl won't think anything of it but of course you will because you know it's there.

I would say $600 to fix, my vette had a similar type "incident" on the rear. That was the quote to r/r the cover and repaint it. Sucks, sorry about your camaro :-(

if you get the entire front re done so it's in perfect condition, I got quoted $680 Dealership. $595 at my buddies friends shop, but the $595 was with fixing a scratch on the back of my car from a hit and run at my schools parking garage. Im just gonna do the v6-ss conversion with my 15'
