    So Im at my shop and we are busy. Lots of Customers.
    I park my porsche right out side the bay door. we have a alarm install but no room in the work area, So I think about parking my car out front of the shop. but was to lazy to pull it around. some older gentleman was shopping next door to us and was leaving the parking lot. he backs in to a poll thats protecting are store sign in his acura. He pulls forward away from the poll but hit his gas pedal instead of his brake. full speed in a left turn hits the owner's Z71 truck of the shop next to us, goes under the rear end continues over the parking block. hits a cement trash can on to the walk way, I have the front door open of the shop. well the door got shut by a acura doing about 30, no more glass. bends the window frames on two sections causing the big sheets of glass cracking. almost had a drive thru shop. came within inches of hitting a customers 2003 bmw M5. If I would have moved my car in front of the shop he would have taken out the whole side cuz he keep going in a circle until he hit the same poll he hit in the beginning. every one in the shop was saying your lucky i didnt park my car in the front. but all I was thinking was "Damn"....I could have gotten a free paint job...lol
    was that wrong of me.? lol

    yea we had one of those NON-digital camera's there so they have to get developed.
    I thought he was too cool about the whole situation, but he came back today and was checking out the damage he done?
    Like he didnt remember what happened. So its making me wonder. he did alot more than 500.00 dollars worth of damage so I wonder if I should have called the police for atleast a report?

    Ya probably shoulda reported it...but at least you have pic's so that is still an option if you feel the guy is unsafe. Plus the pic's will help when it comes to the insurance...
