Some time in the last couple days, some *&(!%$#!#$)_#!*%&*!#&%*^#!^%)#!^%&^#!)% mother #@^%&^#%!#^$%^#!%)&^ hit my car and ran off. I just noticed it today, when I looked in the rear view mirror, and noticed the battery cover was askew. Looks like they hit it HARD in the passenger rear, bending the framework that holds the rear clip on, and possibly the rear bumper itself.









Here, this isn't a crack, but where the sealant pulled away from the frame, exposing the original paint



Bumper pulled away from the tail light



Needless to say I was beyond pissed. Now I need to tear all the body panels off the back and hope I can pound it back into shape with a hammer or something, and the rear clip needs to be replaced.

looks like a new paint job in well overdue... I'm sorry to hear that man, but it's everyone's first instinct to drive-off if no one is looking - you only tend to think about the damage when you're no longer insight.

OK sorry but somebody is going to say it so might as well be me.....I'm sure that'll buff right out!

If it happened at home check out your neighbors cars for matching damage. chrismclubm is right I’m afraid. Younger drivers being stupid and scared of the repercussions typically will bolt if nobody is there to stop them. My neighbors kid mowed down my mailbox and left a nice blue/purple stripe on it from his Jeep. Wasn’t hard to figure out who did it.

Oh edit to say, call the police to report the hit and run so there's a paper trail if you ever do find the POS who hit it.

Do you know where it got hit. Maybe if it was somewhere else, they had video. A girl friend of mine got rear ended in a bar parking lot by a hit and run driver. Their outside video camera caught it and police found him. Then he confessed he did it and his insurance paid for the damage. To put some candy on it, her tail light was already broken but where he hit was right beside it so they paid for all that damage too. Ya it was an SUV too. Those things shouldnt even be sold with reverse....no one ever backs one up and looks. I got backed into by 2 SUVs in one of my Corvettes twice in one day. Had another back into the front of another gfs Corvette too...cost $1200 to fix.

I'm sure you would too if you've recently been laid off and money is super tight.

If money was that tight I wouldn't be driving around. And, if I did hit someone while laid off and broke (which I don't let myself become, because of saving cash for the lean times) I would realize I have an extra 40 hours a week where you could work out some sort of deal to repay for the damage done.

when i had my accident xmas night, my first thought/instinct, was to blaze off lol. its natural. its fight or flight, a base human instinct. being intelligent creatures, we SHOULD have the sense to overcome that instinct, like i did. pulled over, got out of my car promptly and went with my buddy to make sure the other driver was ok. when my brain kicked in, that was my only concern.

faaaaq, what you did was sincere, especially since there was someone in the car who may have gotten injured. Mind you, this is a totally different situation than what happened to our friend here. All throughout history, people have taken things without asking, invaded countries, and have 'stolen' historical artifacts from their respective countries either to make money or to escape from an increasingly unpleasent real life situations - just look at all our museums and the countries we've gone into war with. This is reality whether we are intelligent species or not. We all try to escape danger, whether it is financial or health inclined. I don't believe in karma - as a matter of fact, I think it is ridiculous since it opposes the natural laws of the universe - but if you remain positive, things will work out - believe it or not, the universe always has a way of balancing things. Just take your problem to your insurance company and hopefully things work out.

Where is the point of impact?
Up north in the lower P in MI, and it's an 84.
Been a MI car from the start? How many miles?
Got any rust? Sure it isn't from strut tower failure and sheet metal weld separation?
Hit a good bump with a rusted rearend might cause that sort of damage.

MI car all it's life, 2.5 years in the upper penninsula with me, pretty sure it's been an outside car 95% of it's life, hence the paint. Rust was definately a contributing factor. The point of impact can barely be seen in the 2nd pic, an indentation about the size of my hand above the center of the rear sidemarker light, which was NOT there before. I think if the rust hadn't been there, it would have simply damaged the panel and maybe bent the frame a bit, the way the front bumper is pushed in about half an inch from the time my little sister backed into it at about 10 mph. The strut dower DID seperate from the frame along the bottom edge, and there's little left of the upper frame rail on the passenger side (about 2.5 of the 4 sides missing).

After many days of contemplation, I've decided to turn lemons into lemonade. I'm going to save up and buy a fastback GT, and either

1) use the 84 as a parts car (I've rebuilt almost the entire car to this point) and part out what little would be left, or

2) buy or borrow a welder and teach myself how to weld, and attempt to rebuild the framework on the rear end.

This way I'll end up with a nice GT, which I've always wanted, or TWO Fieros, which was my original plan.

Either way, I'm staying in the Fiero game. It'll take a while until I can afford a nice fastback car, though.

Sad that you got screwed by someone with no morals. Unfortunately in todays society most people don't do the right thing.
A few years ago somone hit my wife's car in a parking lot and left a note "Sorry I hit your car ... sux for you" and they took off. A couple of people saw it happen and thought the jerk was leaving his personal info. No one got the license and it ended up costing me about $900 because he scraped the whole drivers side of the car.
On the good side at least your car isn't so damaged that you can't drive it. Hope you'll be able to fix it without too much trouble.

Shouldnt have anything to do with it. If your driving legally with insurance, it wouldnt cost him a thing. Even deductible insurance dont apply to liability coverage. Be different if it was a mexican with no insurance I guess. New Federal policy you know is if your an illegal mexican, you dont need a drivers license or insurance though.
