Sydney had a big storm today....guess who was in it

Got caught in the hail storm today. Had a bit of hail that came out of nowhere it seems hit me right in the head and im running to move the car after getting my hair cut. At the airport, some of the bits were like cricket balls, where i was in rockdale, it was more like golf balls. But anyway, this huge bit found its way onto my head. I prayed as long as that was all that was going to happen...

Got to the car, jumped in and drove home. Had a quick look at it when it was still wet, could only see one little dint on the bonnet. Thought i was sweet. My room mate came home and told me my car looked ****ed. I called him a liar, we argued, went down since it was dry and had a squiz. Sure enough, the piece of shit is dimpled more than a fat cellulite-rich grandma. Hopefully the insurance mob dont screw me around

Other than that, bought a XY Fairmont last week. 351 Clevo, 4spd toploader, 9in diff etc. Its a big bucket of poo at the moment but give me a couple of years and i'll shit on everything E series :)
