That's so messed up man! That's the crappiest incident I've ever heard of. I've had that happen to a couple of my friends and for no reason at all! Hope your insurance covers it!

My friend's car got keyed (over like 90% of it) inside the secured parking lot at the nuclear plant I work at. Apparently someone was cheating on their wife and she found out and the guy drove the exact same car as him, she was at work (every important dude gets his wife hired) and she decided to take it out on "his" car. My friend was very unhappy, insurance did not cover it because they said they don't cover cosmetic damage.

I will never understand random destruction of property. If someone wants to mess with my car they should at least attempt to steal something. One time I had a guy steal my car stereo so I put the stock one in and he came back and stole that one. Next time he came back I didn't have a stereo so he ripped off half my backseat trying to get into my trunk (guess he's never heard of a trunk release lever) and he stole my paintball gear. Ever since then I keep pretty much nothing in my car when I'm in an urban area.

Just thought you might want to know you aren't alone, good luck with getting your car fixed.

I had some punk key my pretty brand new WRX a little over a month ago... I'm not sure why some people are like that, but just needed something to stick out and say "Hey, I'm a nice car" so dude went with 3 real deep scratches right under the driver's side door handle. I haven't lived in TX for more than a year and all I see are 2wd massive Ford trucks with not a drop of dirt on them... Then something like this is just enough to piss me off! haha. I get coverage but a $200 deductible out of the $460 total damage. Three scratches! Now I heard from the "detective" whom I reported it to that the video that has this guy doing the damage does not include his license plate and is "insufficient evidence" to prosecute anyone or find the identity. Don't they have the ability to watch him in the store (because I know they have good footage of him leaving and circling around to mess up my car) and flip through photos of local known idiots to match him up? LOL, this is just bad how people act. I'd rather laugh because I think of bad things when I'm mad, so laugh it off, fix it, and keep a keen eye out for that black sedan! Or in OP's case, the truck who can't stand your car is faster than his Dad's :P Best of luck learning how to fix it at school!

Sorry to hear about that. I agree with everyone else, it sucks when someone is sneaky like that. When I was in college some broke into my car and stole 2 12" MTX subs, 3 MTX amps, an Alpine Deck, and about 200 CD's!! Learned my lesson quickly, You cant trust anyone. Good luck with the body work!
