2009 Nissan 370Z: Pitfalls of Street Parking

August 17, 2009

I parked our 370Z on the street just up from place on Friday night. I don't have off street parking at my place.

I had some laundry to do on Sunday afternoon, so I walked down the street to the car and popped the hatch. To my horror I saw these scratches on the rear rear bumper:

The car parked behind me didn't have any silver paint on it's front bumper so it could have been violated by any number of cars in the last 36 hours. Nobody left a note saying they're sorry or I'll pay for the damage to your car. To you, mystery parallel parking villian, I say:

"I CURSE YOUR MOTHER'S NAME! I WILL KICK YOUR DOG! MAY YOUR BUMPERS FALL OFF AND YOUR TIRES BE FLAT!"

Now I know how it feels to live in Chicago, New York or Boston as a car owner. There ain't a pretty bumper in any of those cities.
