Well my car was parked at work in employee parking where customers are not allowed to park. Anyways I had backed into the parking spot and since we can double park in the employee parking area, I backed all the way back, so I can let a co-worker park there.

So some JACKA** customer that don't know how to drive parked a little close to my car. Anyways the person who hit my car did a hit and run. No note or anything. I was a pissed off.

So I need to replace both headlight buckets, the grill and the molding. The grill I think I can bend back so I am not to worry. I am gonna go see my painter tomorrow or Tuesday to see how much to do the paint. Damn

Here's the pics

Dude that sucks.
Form the looks of it, it was a truck/suv that did it. Way too high to be a car.

I can take better pics tomorrow and the color of my car is Dark Opal poly. I think, when I first got the car painted it came out darker then I wanted but I still liked it.

Oh yeah anyone got headlight buckets for sale????

I like the color... would like to see more. I can't imagine driving off after hitting someone else's car. What's wrong with people....?

Parking lots can be the worst place for accidents... Once, I ripped a guys door off after he had it pinned against my truck, I pulled forward not realizing he had his door resting against my truck. I had just a minor scratch on the rear bumper. He wasn't happy, but I told him I would call it even...

That's tough. I'd look around the parking lot tomorrow & check for your paint on another vehicle. Maybe you'll get lucky.

I have a driver headlight bucket with a broken piece but not noticeable once installed, at least I never noticed it until I took it all apart.

It's yours free if you want it.

You know what would be great? IF there were a security system that incorporated cameras on the front, rear, and sides; if your car was bumped or hit when you were away from it, the cameras would automatically begin filming for the next... i dunno, ten minutes so that you could catch people who did this stuff.

I dunno, just a thought. Sorry to hear for your troubles; but really, I think it's better that it's the front than the rear. I would rather replace headlight buckets and bumpers than taillight panels any day. Allthough the color match would be less critical on a tailight panel.

Sorry to hear this David- could it have been some kind of flat bed truck? Can't see any damage to your hood so it was high and flat...

Hope insurance will cover you- do you have classic car ins?

Are there any security cameras in that parking lot?

Also, it looks like you've got an alarm. Did it go off and did anyone hear it?

Sorry that happened, that sucks. Stuff like this pisses me off. I had similiar thing happen to me in High School. I parked my truck in the farthest parking spot when I worked at a grocery store hoping that nobody would come near it. Yep some [email protected] still mananged to run into it, and leave.

Sorry to hear about your car. I wish that people would just man-up and leave a note! My wife wonders why I get so hateful when I am in parking lots with "those idiots"; and that is with our every day cars. When I'm in the 'stang I park in the middle of nowhere and there is still one retard in a rusted out bucket that has to park right on top of you. Once again, sorry about your car.

man that stinks! My wife's van has been in a hit and run twice this year in parking lots. The deductibles are taking money away from my Mustang projects.

That wasn't an accident - It was a hit and run assault!

Sorry to hear of your misfortune. What kind of a deductible do you have to fork over?

Best of luck in the future.
