Car was Egged

Well the one time we leave the car home while we went to Baton Rouge to visit her family someone egged the car. We left on Friday night and got home Monday night around 9:30 so there is no telling when it happened. We filed a police report because I had a bad feeling it messed the paint up and I was right. The clear coat on the trunk where the egg was is destroyed. Fortunately it was on the trunk only so I'm hoping we can just get the entire trunk lid repainted.

That is the reason I am afraid to leave mine at home. I hate that happened, and cannot understand why people (OK, kids probably) feel the need to damage this car. My only issue is coming home late. I was followed the other night with one car in front and one on each side. Luckily a police car came up behind me and they drove off. But I know it will happen again.

Yes, I try to stay out of that situation, but it happens so fast.

God I hate people some times. Be careful out there, don't be afraid to get that On-Star panic button. You would be amazed on how fast the cops will get to you.


Also sounds like there will be no other option than to repaint your hood. Do not let them lightly scuff it and then re-clear. Nothing but problems. Good luck

Cajun, hit that red button next to the ONstar button. Get the cops there STAT. I can't believe what people do. It makes me see red when someone, anyone, is endangered like that. Get a full size blow up doll to put in the passenger seat too. Maybe they won't mess with you if they think there are two of you in the car.

Damn, (pardon my language) that pisses me off. I leave mine out in the daytime sometimes (in my driveway), but never overnight. Some people just have no respect for property or anything else. And I definately won't leave it in a parking lot for more than one second. If people can't think of anything else to do, they'll key it. I've saved my whole life for this car. GM finally got around to making it. It would kill me to have some fool mess it up. I don't even want to have to go to the trouble of having it re-painted. I feel for you even tho it's only the trunk lid. I'll say it again. Man, this kind of thing pisses me off.

Wow that is just terrible. It's hard to believe what some people will do and call "fun." Cajun, you are so lucky that police officer showed up. Great tip on the blow up doll. Do they really make those in male models? I've only ever heard of female blow up dolls....LOL.

So sorry this happened. We visited our parents out of town and had to leave our car outside and unattended for 2 nights.I was scared to death to come out and find that someone had vandalized it. Why? Because the attention this car got while we were there was CRAZY. People were going around the block numerous times to look at it. We were getting stopped at the gas station and the store so people could look inside. My family's friends were coming over wanting a ride. I couldn't wait to get home to lock Pumpkin safely away in her garage so I could sleep!

Thats a shame :( Sorry to hear. Like you said though, at least the damage was isolated to the trunk.

That royally sucks. I had my car egged back in high school, and I was livid. I can't even imagine what I'd feel like if it happened to my brand new car.

I would highly recommend the car cover to avoide being egged like this. It's a lot cheaper than a new paint job.

We're gonna drop it off to get painted next week, they are going to remove the trunklid and spoiler and repaint both of them off of the car so there will be no overspray chances.

Suggest you may want to get a carry permit. I was on a 2 month business trip to Baton Rouge in 2007 and I am aware of the situation following hurricane Kitrina. I also never saw as many cars with custom wheels, Baton Rouge is the Wheel Capital of the south!
Be safe!

bunch of pricks out there, brothers mustang got paintballed a few weeks ago. They paintballed the mustang and the left side of the garage because they knew the camaroi was on the left side of the garage.
Came home and saw, drove around what do you know, come across a very suspicious vehicle, they see me and jet. Got their plate. Called the cops and filed a report.
We put cameras up now just in case they come again. Was the brother of some stupid kid who scratched my Camaro on my own driveway with his bike.
Sometimes you want to do things, but you realize thatr you actually have a life unlike those.

No need for a permit in Louisiana. We have a law that says your car is an extension of your home. What ever is leagal in your home is legal in your car. You are allowed to keep a loaded firearm any where in your car. Louisiana also passed a law about twelve years ago called the Shoot The Car Jacker Law (we already had a shoot the burglar law in place). If anyone approches your car brandishing a wepon while you are in it, you can blow em away.

I purchased a Taurus Judge anti-carjack system for my Camaro SS.

Same deal in Texas. Apparently, even if the car jacker is running away, you still have the legal right to shoot him.
