So I was about to start my day some Saturdays ago..As usual I was walking out to my car (05 Flint Mica, Scion Tc, 5 speed of course) which was parked outside my house on a quiet street. When I approached my car around 1pm, I saw a note on my windshield. The note stated, "I just saw a Gray Cadillac Sedan hit your car and take off." My neighbor who saw the accident, was able to get 6 characters from the plate. This **** hits my car at noon in broad day light, and keeps going? You've got to be kidding me? I went and filed a police report and took some photos. Weeks have pasted now and I'm waiting to hear from the detective assigned to my case. Finally she notifys me, but it doesn't sound like we're going to find the guy. I understand, its not like anyone was hurt...I mean, they got more important cases to tackle...So I went to get an estimate from a bodyshop and guess how much? $1700 bucks!!!! Can you believe that? Ofcourse I have full coverage and it will only cost me a $500 deductable..Well, $500 is better then $1700, but come on! ITS $500.OO DOLLARS!!!! So pissed!!!! I've been driving around my neighborhood late at night, trying to find that Cadillac, but no luck so far. Out of all the cars parked on the street, this guy has to hit mine...Moral of the story, I guess...Dont sleep in.

here's the photo...
Okay, after jumping through the hoops, so I could show you pictures...Here it is....

I'd definitely be really pissed off if that happened to me.

we've had two cars in my family get hit while parked and both drivers drove away (one was totalled, the other had a big dent) needless to say we don't park on the street anymore. it's too bad that so many people are that careless behind the wheel.

Lazy cops. It bothers me that they put so much effort into patrolling the roadways to give revenue enhancing tickets, but so little into finding people who do #### like that.

ha maybe that jerk driving the caddy will also have to fix up his car of course since his car is a luxury car he should be able to afford it. if i were you id check out body shops and caddy dealers for him. good luck dude.

Seriously if you had the time or if you can get people to help you out, your car should have its revenge. The shops all keep logs of all work, but i hope that this arse clown doesnt just live somewhere far and thus making it even harder to catch the person responsible. .....and again yes it is sad that this person just doesnt care about their vehicle let alone anyone elses.......... cheer up just dont forget that you still own a Tc an they prollly own a busted craptacular cadillac..
