Someone...

.

This past weekend, I went to a family oriented birthday party for my friends wife and drove the Geo.

While there, someone decided I needed a present also.











That someone, decided that a fist sized hole through the side of the tail would improve its looks.


I'm still pissed...

A security camera would of been real nice in this situation , It may well be some local Vandals , who seen a opportunity to exercise their vandalism.

Kids love to ruin things for other people ..

Doh, that sucks. Sorry to see that happen. Are you going to fix it, or just leave it patched?

From the looks of your picture with that big Fish (another thread), I think the vandal was very lucky you did not see them mess up your boattail.

I really hate it when punks mess with other people's stuff.

I had two separate incidents with my '74 Nova; the stainless side trim being pulled off and destroyed, and it being broken into and having my custom-made speaker boxes ripped off.

Dude, that's a rough family you have there

I'd love to see somebody try to punch a fist through any of my mods! Ha ha vandals, joke's on you! Mine are all metal!

I finally got around to removing the infinity flower, rainbow and butterfly stickers last week that somebody at work so thoughtfully plastered all over the Black Widow. Of course it removed some of my 6 dollar paint job, so now I'll have to buy another 99 cent can of flat black and touch it up this weekend

They'll get theirs. They always do, though they sometimes don't realize it when it comes.

Bummer!

Worst thing that has happened to any of my rides was a funny note left under the Firefly's windshield:

They pointed my reverse camera down just in case, even though it wasn't on.

One can only hope that when it does, they do, and that it's painful, very, very painful.

I was never more than 30-40' away from the car. While there, it started to rain and everyone moved under a carport. I could still see the drivers side. Later in the evening when the birthday girl (62) asked me to show her the car was when it was discovered that someone had messed with the car. If I had to take a guess who, I would say it was a friend of one of the teen aged relatives who came to visit them while they were there and had parked behind my car.

But, who knows.

The damage is done.
