Someone smashed my RJT 2LT **FREAKIN' PICS INSIDE**

Well, here it is. Heading to work near the University of Notre Dame (go ahead insert Charlie Weis jokes) when a college kid parked on the street decides to do a U-turn and head to campus. Only problem was he didn't look and smashed right into me *&%!!**^%%. See pics.

Cop has kid at fault in traffic report. I've contacted his insurance company and had it filed. Sent them the police report twice. They want to get voice-to-voice with kid to confirm fault. I tell them, hey read the police report but they say standard operating procedure. Anyway, I'm concerned about parts availability...

C'mon team, someone make me feel better....

PS I didn't yell at the punk, but I sure wish he acted sorry. Never even said he was sorry. I finally said, dude, you DO KNOW you just smashed my brand new Camaro, right? He looks down at his shoes and says, "yeah...I know." Felt like I was reprimanding my child. He was driving a Mercedes...

Man I hope there is no major damage under there. Hard to tell but if the suspension was tweaked it could affect the cars ride in the future. Make sure you get all the supsension pieces replaced, some may not look like it but they are probably bent out of spec just enough to throw off the tracking.


Poor car.

People who drive like that need to lose their license for a year. Then they will think twice before doing something stupid!

Sorry to hear about your baby. Silver lining, at least you can get another one if it's totaled. If you had chosen ABM...

I've heard that too.. :(

OUCH ! ! !

OH that hurt...

As said before me, we feel your pain. As much as it would have felt good to unload, glad you kept your cool - you're lucky you did or it could have turned out worse for you. Yea, an apology would have felt good, but today everyone is afraid to admit they f#@ked up or be liable for who knows what.

Its amazing what can be done today to suspensions that get creamed, it will work out fine.

Hang in there.....

LOL Enterprise picked me up in a maroon HHR. I was heartbroken and wasn't thinking and when they asked what car I wanted, I said, "can I just have this one it's the same color...". What a wuss I am.

Thing is, we all "F" up at times. I can roll with that. Just wish he appeared sorry...

He was literally parked on a side street and I was driving down the road. As I came up along side him he just took off to make the U-turn. "Failure to yield" was noted as cause of the accident on his part.

Keep the sympathy and humor coming. I'm starting to feel a tad better.

I must say that I am a bit over-protective about my baby, and would have probably went insane. I will say that there are a lot of talented body shops around, and at least since it is new the paint will match!
