Commodores should be banned from reversing!!!!!!!!!

So there my zetec is, sitting there in the street minding its own business when a great gullumph of a commodore decides my drivers door looks like a nice stopping guide. grrrrr. so now i have three panels that need repraying (due to the rf guard being scratched during a annoying parking incident)! not happy! luckily the door will be covered by the commondore's insurance. so today on my day off instead of lounging around generally enjoying life im off to the crash repairers to get quotes. i'll get some pics up probably this arvo for all those interested in whats beneath the paint of a focus. heh heh...sniff...very disheartening.

If trees could scream...would we be so cavalier in cutting them down?
.....maybe.....if they screamed all the time for no good reason.

Ouch mate! Sorry to hear. The worst kind of accident is one that you have no control over.

Re: Commodores should be banned from reversing!!!!!!!!!

I feel for you. Like BlueAU said, they are the worst accidents.

It sounds like at least the driver hung around, unless you were there anyway.......could have only been worse if they took off.

Re: Commodores should be banned from reversing!!!!!!!!!

OK sorry guys. here come the pics. Tims gonna post em for me cos i cant seem to do it, must not be nerdy enough lol. so yea, it doesn't look too bad in these pics but the quote is around $950 to fix it all. basically the whole right side of the car needs repsraying (mainly to blend the colour through) but i looks like its all covered under the culprits insurance costing me, the poor victim, no money, just heartache, headache, and the time im gonna be without my car. anyways, outlook is good, will let ya know when she's all fixed up.
