I once had an Opel Manta - in the 60K miles I owned it, it had been hit and run no less than 7 times, got backed into by a drunk with no insurance, even had two windshields busted. The only one of these that occurred with me in the car was the drunk incident.

After all this, because some of the body work done was third-rate, I had the body completely redone, put on new radials - car looked better than new. Three months later some juvenile delinquents kicked in the doors and attempted to slash the tires and bust the glass, but got scared off by passers-by before the deed has done.

I loved the car, but frankly - it was a sheet-metal damage magnet.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
