Growl  
so yesterday i was driving up to a interview, when on I93N a white van decides to attempt to get into my lane. he of course doesnt see me and bounces into me, this of course causes damage to my car... he bounces off (im still amazed i stayed in my lane) and then instead of slowing down .. he frickin takes off! a frickin 'hit'n'run'... so the image below is the major damage done to my car...:< nobody was hurt and at least the doors work (locks and everything) but now i have to deal with insurance.. BLAH

I would have taken off after the fucker... but that's how I am...

Glad you're alright.

That's probably going to run about $1500 BTW..

It's just the door skins. They'll either replace the skins or get used doors from a salvage yard.

yeah i got the appraisal. 3k as the damage isnt just the doors some damage to the entire side of the car (i have lovely white streaks)

It will surprise you what can just buff out.... the body shop won't tell you that, just quote the repaint. Someone side swiped my parents' car when it was parked on the street. I was able to buff out the sratches and paint transfer. It all depends on how deep it is...

I Hope your ok. That sucks.

Some punks threw beer bottles at my parked car at my folks house early in the morning and blew two rather deep dents into both passenger doors. i wanted to kill them.

You know me enough to know I would have gone after the fucker. Screw paying the deductable. I think i would have made life hell for that person out of principle. thats why i keep a camera in my car...just in case someone decides to run, take a photo of the plate.

ya im good. i thought about taking off after him in truth as well as the photo of the plate (cameraphones are nice) but by the time i realized he wasnt pulling over he was quite a ways ahead.

I am glad to hear that you are okay. Sorry about your car though. The seat warmers still work right? Hopefully, your insurance will pay for it. Still sucks though.
