Got Keyed



Was coming back from work and found that my car GOT KEYED from the front left headlight all the way around to the license plate. The CHILD got it down to the white. Why would someone do that? I had a report done, but dag nabbies..... I guess it is going to the body shop soon.... Might as well have the silver stripes painted on also.....to match up with the Gray Int.

Unbelievable that this still happens!! I thinks Carrie Underwood keeps reminding people??
I moved to Phoenix for school with my freshly painted 69 Camaro and got drivers side bumper to bumper keyed in the first week! I puked. Very sorry for you, it just makes me doubt my fellow man even more.

Ex-wife/girlfriend/baby mamma? Cut someone off on the road? Rev your engine a little too loud near someone or set off a car alarm with the engine roar? Some people get pissed at the weirdest things, and then there's just plain old green eyes...

Hope it doesnt happen again. That sucks big.

Will your insurance cover that?

Wow! Sorry to hear that...don't take it personal and move on....Karma will even it out in the end.

By the way, I too, have the gray seat inserts and I searched for days trying to find the just right color for my painted rally stripes. That perfect stripe color is Vapor Silver. Its a Ford paint (Shhhh). A shade darker than normal silver. Its a beautiful gray/silver with a lot of metallic...check it out at your Ford dealer.

My Camaro is at the paint shop as I write this...it will be finished tomorrow. Good luck, and in the future, be careful where you park.

Well, reported to Sheriff. Son was involved in a accident and the family saw that my wife had driven him in that car to the hospital. They (family members) were rather coarse. I believe it was one of the family members that did it. I hope that the parking lot cameras caught it. The insurance should cover it, but there is the little detail about the deductible. It was personal....and just outright cowardly. Thanks for the support!!!

Sorry to hear this. Just a shame that you can't own a nice car without all the haters out there destroying what you work so hard for.

"What comes around goes around."

Someday that person will get their due.

It's a shame that too many people today lack respect. Its precisely the reason why I avoid parking my Camaro anywhere unless absolutely necessary. If you have a nice car, it seems likely you'll run across someone who feels otherwise.

Glad to see you turning a negative into a positive. The stripes will be a nice addition.

Got Keyed update

Well...here it is the result is that it will cost a grand total of $1,800 to repair the keying of our camaro. Wish I could round up a posse.....
Even if I were to be sue the people that did this....They would not pay and I would still be stuck with it......This Sucks!!!!
