WTF Got my first door ding today from another 5th Gen Camaro

Can't believe it, my wife and I always park our pampered SS in the farthest spaces from the stores front door and today another 5th Gen Camaor parks right next it. When my wife came out she noitced it next to our car and thought oh thats cool. The car was a poorly maintained red V6 camaro. When she got to the next store, she noticed a small red mark on the drivers side door. Upon further inspection she noticed a small crease at the red paint transfer. She went back, but the a**hole was gone. I am pretty depressed about it, I hope the body shop can get the ding out.

If your not going to treat Camaros with the respect they deserve, you shouldn't own one!

"Oh cool another Camaro"

"I'll just park right next to it"

***Kicks door open with foot into SS door***

"Whoops"

We have always had nice well taken care of cars that stay in great condition. Can't stand door dings. But on my Camaro, it really pisses me off. Kind of like someone kicked my dog.

Ohh be careful with Mary Jane, I got hit by a member on here, during a Camaro meet, still aggravates me but it wasn't entirely their fault. Lots of wind + heavy, long ass Camaro doors = not good ending. Just teaches you to be more careful

Part of my logic for parking in BFE is to protect myself from door dings. The other part is protecting everyone else from our long, heavy doors.
