Hit and Run

Well it wasnt my car but it was my brothers focus..he was parked on a side street and it looks like someone backed into it...theres also black paint marks all over it...oh yeah and the large dent as well as a dimple under the moulding......my dad talked to the insurance guy and if we let them handle it then it may or may not go on record and we will still have to spend some money from our pockets ...its a mess...it doesnt look like it can just be pushed back out b/c of the dimple....but the question is that can the side paneling just be replaced instead of having to replace the whole door...thanks guys ill post pics when i get the chance....thanks

Some ******* in an expedition backed into a POS car as i was pulling into my parking lot the other night. I decided to follow him 3-4 miles and called the local PD and they pulled his ass over with like 3 squad cars. Just pisses me off people would be so ignorant to do something like that, next time he'll think twice. I did my good deed for the year =0. I wish he backed into a VW beetle or a cavelier, atleast it could had been a hot chick that could had thanked me =0

Kickass CowsGoMoo, I would have done the same thing.

Drk- How much in damages did they do?

It seems like people around here are idiots, too, I'm always almost getting hit. The bad part about it is MY CAR IS BRIGHT ******ING RED! Just today 2 tour busses blocked me in at work. I work at a hotel and I was the only car in the parking lot, so the bus drivers decided to be *******s or something. But anyways, they both parked sideways from where my car was facing, so the sides of the busses were at the nose/tail of my car. One of them parked right behind me, it was honestly about 4 inches from my back bumper. The other parked about a foot infront of my front bumper. I was so pissed, but I knew I couldn't say anything or I'd probably lose my job or get written up. So, knowing I had full coverage insurance and was already pissed off, I got in my car and proceeded to turn the wheel as far as it would go one way, and go forward a little. Then I'd turn it as far as it would go the other way, and back up a little. It took me close to 5 minutes to get my car out of that little jam, and the whole time I was there the bus driver stood there at the door of his bus and watched me do it. How pissed would you be? I was really pissed off by this time, and it made it even worse that I couldn't say anything. So I hauled ass through the parking lot to another parking spot and stomped back into the office to talk to my boss. I told her about it and after a while she came back and told me that she told the bus driver that 'if he EVER ******ing does that s**t again' that she wouldn't let them stay at our hotel anymore, and that he was lucky that she didn't kick the whole group of people out of the hotel right then. Then she told me to expect some words from him. SHE ACTUALLY GOT THE BUS DRIVER TO COME UP AND APPOLOGIZE TO ME FOR BEING SUCH AN ASS! Oh it was great, and after he left I just about died laughing.

Sorry for hijacking the thread, you can have it back now. I just thought I'd share my story. :P

I know what you mean. Monday someone hit my car on a military base and the sad part is that they couldn't do anything for me. In fact they were going to give ME a ticket for not having valid isurance papers because I'm waiting for them in the mail. Sorry to hear that and I'm not trying to steal your shit. Hope everything works out.

I get a bad vibe about people in massive Yukons and Expiditions sometimes.

Its like other "objects" on the road dont matter. No to talk bad about anyone or bashing any vehicle, but I just get that vibe from certin drivers.
Their always speedin their nuts off, turn who needs a signal,ect.

no idea, the people to ask would probably be the ford dealer where you got it.
