So, FI finally got his lovely red Z-4 (posted about this maybe 4 months ago) last saturday. I just got a call from him and he hit one of those short concrete things in a parking lot while trying to call me (bluetooth).
I was like NOOOOOOOO. I mean he just got the thing. Fortunately, he checked and it seems no damage has been done! YAYYY.
Doesn’t that always seem to happen though? Swear to god, I hit one of those the 2nd day I had my new beetle. No damage, but boy does that sort of thing scare you!
What about you guys? Any crazy car shenanigans?

My car’s nicknamed the Pinata, because my brother learned to drive it and every time he came from driving it the thing had a new dent. It’s been in 5 accidents – my mom and dad each were in one, the rest were my brother. The front bumper’s held together with duct tape, it’s covered in dents, and one of the side panels fell off the first day I drove it – I didn’t even hit it on anything, it just fell off.
Oh, and for a while it would overheat every 2 weeks. One time it overheated when it was 102 degrees out. We had to blast the heater for 20 minutes to dissipate the heat. We were on our way to a wedding, and showed up sweating like pigs.

@abirdword: Oh no!
So, when the side panel fell off, were you more in shock? Upset? I don’t even know how I would react. I guess it would probably depend on the day (given that it was already nicknamed the pinata 😉 ).

@RenoSweeney24: I didn’t know it until I came home. at that point it was more funny than anything, like “are you kidding me?”
