Default Got hit in the Vette :(

I'm driving into work in a good mood because the Vette's build sheet/window sticker came in today. I pull onto base following mid 90s caddy. He's about 20 feet infront of me. We both start slowing down as we come up to the gate and he decides that he missed his turn to leave base instead and slams his brakes and throws it into reverse. I jam the brakes drop it into reverse and before I can hit the gas the back of his car slams into my front passenger side There are scratches from the front license plate area all the way to the top of the passenger blinker, and there are a few small cracks under the paint. The passenger front blinker lens is also cracked. I'll take pics on lunch. It's not bad at all, but now I have to go through the whole ordeal of getting it fixed.

Furious is not even remotely in the same category as when I'm feeling right now

He said he didn't see me. He did apologize though and the copy of the police report says he hit me

Yeah, she's crying outside in the parking lot right now. I gave her a hug, but she wants to be alone right now.

I think I'm just lucky he was in his 50s. If he was younger I probably wouldn't be posting this right now

That sucks Rob. I'm actually your neighbor's boss, the guy with the worked black C6 that has been parked for 5 months Anyway, I had a fender painted by that guy out the main gate then straight across like you are headed towards the Turnpike. He was a lil pricey but I was happy with the work and I'm a picky bastard. For the life of me I can't remember the name of the place, but its on the left before you get to the WaWa and the gas station. I don't know if anybosy else had bad luck, but I was pretty impressed with the paint he did for me and that's tough to do.
rj
Cilurso if you are looking on global.

Even more ironic is that I've known/known of both of you (known Rob for years, met RJ at Cartek a couple times) who happen to work in relatively close proximity to each other for years and yet you're only crossing paths now LOL.
