Had an unfortunate incident last week with a fiendishly concealed concete bollard! It was hidden behind a big concrete planter which I carefully drove around. I felt the car stick but because the music was up loud, concealing what I assume was a screeching sound, I thought the car was down in a gutter and just needed a quick rev to climb out. Et voila:
Looks pretty much like the time I had a run in with a fiendishly concealed multi-storey car park with my old Laguna in Germany -Â I blamed the wrong side of theÂ road thing for that one. (Must dig out the picture I have of that). These things keep sneaking up on me.
I can never complain to Jean about dings on my car again – although she did do a nice job on the door of my old Irish Laguna as I recall. Broke the wing mirror while reversing past a tree, and then in a panic (I’m guessing) swung open the door to better assess the situation – and bodged the door from top to bottom along said tree.
Oh well off to the body shop again.

I cannot believe he\’d say such a thing – the number of so called dings he\’s put in the car would put any male to shame. I have only ever incurred minor dings whenever I\’d driving – not worth talking about really.
Very nice. You should try hitting a Max Headroom Sign with your bike on a roof rack. Makes a a very destinctive mark down the paneling. You should put a hit counter on here somewhere (The website, not the Car)
A hit counter for my car! Like the way a fighter pilot paints kills on the side of the plane! Thanks, the Dingometer has just been patented!
Anyway back in the real world I’ve put a hit counter in the footer!
