Had some idiot yank two plug wires off at a car show when I wasn't paying attention.

When I lived at my other house, it was half a twin. The other half was owned by a high school science teacher.

I had just had my '72 Monte Carlo repainted and had it parked in the driveway in August when we left for a week in Florida.

When I got back, I immediately saw it had been egged earlier in the week. Not only did the egg shells make impact marks but egg hit every single panel on the car.

Insurance paid for a complete repaint. It's a good thing I never found out who did it.

Yep.
Dude loosened my rear lugs on one side of my '75 Nova.
I was racing another guy and the rear wheel was passing me.
FF to a week later.
Dude ended up in the hospital getting stitches inside and outside his mouth. Just one punch.
Fk'n azzhole is lucky that I didn't kill him. Well, maybe I'm lucky.
I was 18 at the time.

When I was getting back on my feet from damn near being homeless and unemployed, I had an old Jetta that got me around.

Left it in a parking garage and a couple kids smashed the side window, stole my aftermarket stereo and almost got speakers too.

Nice little fuggers took the time to pop my hood and rip and slash wires and hoses.
Also took a piss in my backseat for me.

Scott

Had my car egged a few times in high school.

My wife had a tire slashed on her car at work when she was organizing a vote to decertify the SEIU at the hospital where she worked. She won the vote. That's right, my wife took on the union thugs and won.

Not really sabotaged, but a few years back while at a party, I had a couple friends jack up one side of my Impala (to get underneath) & put several very long zip ties around my driveshaft. Made one hell of a racket when I left their house.

I had chased a 76 low mileage Coupe De Ville owned by a little old lady in the condo I lived in for about 5 years and one day she agreed to sell it to me. It was mint save a faded firemist cinnamon rare paint color. After I bought it I had it painted and it looked BRAND new. The first night I had it home I parked it on the street in our secluded little neighborhood some asshole went around it with a key/knife/? and scratched every panel on the car.
I was so depressed that I sold the car in the next few days..... Good thing I never found out who did it.

Back in the late sixties at the drag strip my car (67 Dodge RT 440) dominated its class. Car was running real good! We left the pit area to go to the snackbar for lunch and when I got back I saw this person under the hood.

Now hood was down when I left. Made it over to the car and slammed the hood down hard on this idiot. I then raised the hood and he staggered out hands in fists. He wisely realized I was big in good shape also ready to battle and he wisely backed down mumbling something like hey man nice car I was only admiring the engine.

All looked good under the hood but I had a little time before eliminations started and I went and made a test run. Car was very sluggish, checked and found he had jammed the linkage so that the back two barrels would not open. I told my buddy to watch my car and I went looking for the punk who has sabotaged my car.

Lucky for him he decided to leave because i would have done a number on him, sorry to this day I did not do it after I slammed the hood on him.

Fixed the carb and won my class as usual. I never saw the punk again and I looked good every time i went to the drags or a car show.

My brother and his buddy caught this young punk taking a piss into his 60 Corvette long ago. We usually left the tops down in those warm summer days.....They whacked him a few times, and took him to a nearby bridge where they held him over the edge by his feet and asked him about how short life can be! Took all the money he had in his wallet for cleaning the car's interiour. ....... I'm sure he never did anything that stupid again.

My wife won a pickup truck in 1994, and I traded it and another vehicle for a new Mazda pickup. A guy I knew was jealous and I'm about 99% sure he was the one to take a beer bottle cap down the passenger side, digging in so hard that it scraped into the metal. Had the truck for one week. Of course he denied it but I know it was him.
