When my wife and I were newlyweds, 1999, she drove my 66 to work and I kept her 97 Cougar home to do all the maintenance and detail. She came home almost sick, on the verge of tears, apologizing, some dingleberry fell off his bicycle while she was stopped at a traffic light, his handlebar scraping a 6 inch gash in the paint and primer right under the passenger door handle. He got up, said, "Sorry," and quickly rode in another direction. She got out and looked immediately but couldn't catch his a$$. I couldn't be mad at her. It's a driver...
I have been door dinged and such a few times but since the car is made of real metal, it doesn't dent, just scuffed the paint. They probably fared worse but don't care.
For years, I've parked uphill from cart returns, next to an island and deep in the spot so the next car is a full door extension away and then some, if there's any cars around at all. I usually take up two spots, often at an angle so there's just no way to park by me.
Door-dingers, here's a big bouquet of Pi$$-on-yas.
