Default Dammit. Neighbor (who is hiding) hit the Corvette.

The neighbor across the street backed into my car on Saturday. It was absolutely 100% the wife, since she's nearly backed into my wife and I as we're sitting in the street just finishing backing out of our driveway - she never actually looks when backing out. The C5 was on the street (inlaws in town and construction on the house, so it was at the curb) and the dumbass in her Toyota SUV thing backed into the driver's door.

The cop who showed up was a car nut and after looking at the damage decided to follow up with the neighbors since they won't answer the door for me (when we know they're home).

Ugh. The door needs replaced since it busted the fiberglass. Hopefully the cops get a better response at the neighbors door than I did - they're literally the only people who could have caused this damage.

Well that sucks! My dad had a similar incident years ago with his truck, but the neighbor was honest about it and paid for the damage. To quote the neighbor "I'm glad it was your truck parked on the street and not your Corvette"

Iím surprised you donít have video cameras. Cmon Mr. Geek, get into the 21 century ! That would have taken all the drama out of he said/she said.

Same thing happened to my vette. This guy got a hit and run ticket. All because of my cameras.

A guy backed into my brand new C5 just two months after I got it. He was super old and very belligerent and said I tricked him into backing into him by hiding behind him. In fact I was in a parking lot trapped between two vehicles trying to leave the place we were at. The old dude was in his car, started it up and just slowly backed into me as I honked the horn and yelled. It cracked the passenger door. However, I did not have to have the door replaced. My body shop friend looked at it and said they could fix it by drilling a hole on each end of the crack so it wouldn't spread any further, and then patch it up structurally from the inside and also inject glue into the crack. That done and a paint blend and it was as good as new and that repair never showed up on any CarFax because I didn't turn it in to the insurance company.

You should be seen (by them) getting paint samples from the damage area. And then confront them. Hope the cop goes to bat for you. Charge the bitch with hit and run!

I spoke with them a few minutes ago (their lights were on) but they denied any chance it was them.

Oddly enough, their silver SUV thing has a busted rear corner exactly where it would have hit *and* their daughter is learning to drive.

The cops are going to have fun with this one. Time to get some security cameras set up as well I guess...

What's the big deal? What does a C5 door go for these days, 10 or 15 bucks?

Estimate came back at $1200 - looks like they think they can repair it without replacing the door.

I can just say this.....the repair of fiberglass is very tricky.....and to get a true artisan that knows WTF he is doing is HARD.....

and over the last near 2 years I can tell some tales.....parts of which go back over 18 years here.....I can name names, events, locations, time frames....lawyers, companies, and some 'friends' who know the offending people involved......suffice to say, I do my own shopping.....and have dropped out of all/any car clubs locally here....I thought to start up again a couple years ago, but found out the hard way, the crooked bastards are still around....

yawl wooden believe it anyway....

Get pictures including one with a tape measure showing height of damage.

Sorry to hear you have denying assholes for neighbors.
