Someone backed into my ST (almost no damage! Whew

So I notice the front black grill insert has paint marks. White paint really ground in. I clean it off (tough to get it off) and notice the top of the front grill is alos pushed in about 1/4 inch.
It popped back in place. and I got off 99% of the paint. Some scratches on the very front edges of the grill surface. but nothing a normal person would notice..
I really lucked out!

Had to be the bumper of some white painted car. just giving my grill a swipe.

I hope your grille marred his / her paint really good. People like that should ride the damn bus.

Around here I wouldn't call it a good half year if somebody hasn't hit one of the cars. The drivers here are so stupid they would wreck tricycles. On cellphones.

I remember using my 1984 Escort to push other cars that were disabled on at least two occasions. I would never do that with my Focus. Using one car to push another was not unheard of until bumpers disappeared. I wish we could have the aerodynamic bumpers of today with the functionality of yesterday.
