A bloody semi trailer turns out of a driveway and misjudges where your  ute is parked?  ^.^ ^.^

Yep that really sucks ^&^. It's amazing how many people get a license without actually learning to drive

yeah mate  the inconvenience is more annoying than anything else, actually I was surprised it wasn't a lot worse, he stopped straight away. Funny he backed in without hitting it and unloaded then hit it on the way out??

Thats a shame - hopefully insurance will fix it all up for you. Just inconvenient !

Yep, sux but it looks like he missed the 1/4 panel, which is good.  Easy enough job to replace the rear bar and should only be out of action for a couple of days at worst.

Good that he stopped, plenty of lowlifes these days just look and run.

Light and bumper or whatever its called these days. I think the 1/4 panel is fine, the only thing is the top of the tailgate looks a little out of alignment, a bit further in than it was if that makes sense.
Insurance company says it should get done next week, luckily there is a smash repair near me that is on their books and he is quite good so I don't have to go to one of those assessment places. Just a bitch that I have to lose my work truck for a few days, everytime I use another vehicle there is always a tool or part that I leave at home and only notice when I go to get it!

Pain in the ass, I've had a few people hit me, they stuff up and you are the one who gets put out.  When a panel beater says it will be finished next week, what he is really saying is in will be ready next month.

Long like the mighty SS!

Now...just to save up for one of those new Thunder utes!

My wife has the VE Omega ute (not SS) and they are a very nice vehicle to drive.

Marty,

Jeff

Its just not as cool as a SS ute!

Don't think the two pups would have as much fun the back of your Beamer, although its very very nice with those awesome rims on it.
