I have no info on this but...... ouch! To say I'd be angry (if this were my car)would be an understatement.

Why do I hear this song playing in the background when I look at these pictures?

Apexes are a lot like relationships. So tough to get right, so easy to see where they went wrong.

The secret to a long life is ------- not dying.

-- I was going to write "Cowardly act of a person...." then I thought that someone who does this should not be considered "A person" and giving them that much credit would be too much.

I had an ex-employee who keyed my 2008 Exige from most of the door to all of the rear fender. This is psychotic behavior.

Hate to see the car hurt like that. Why would we all vote 100% a female did this?

OK maybe a gay lover but....

I had an ex pour clorox into a reef aquarium (that she knew I loved) killing a lot of beautiful living things.

Hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn.

My most recent involvement has told me straight out that the Lotus would be her first strike if I cheated on her.

Al Bundy believed in never letting them know if you enjoyed something, much less love it.

Anyone can make something complicated. It takes genius to make it simple. Einstein.

That is sad

I gotta say though, if you are the twisted lowlife that likes doing this kind of thing, an elise is a great car to choose.

I cant think of another car where you could do so much damage with so little effort.

Also, carrie underwood is super hot in that video. I like to watch it without sound

Seriously, my car is small

Women tend to strike back with psychological warfare rather than physical. If it is physical it's usually in a sneaky way where the victim would never know what hit them or by who.
My bet would be either on a disgruntled employee, neighbor, ex friend or business partner. Maybe a longtime wife. But even then she would probably have the sense to just take the damn car in the divorce. I've seen a lot more men do things like this than women.

yeah song aside, I would bet a man did this.


The fairer sex is a little less disposed to physical violence. This is definately an act of violence. That car was murderized!

Yeah.. My ex kicked my dog when it was still just a puppy. I think she was jealous of the new b#tch getting all the attention that she didn't even want. One licked the hand that fed it and the other bit the hand that fed it.

Or it could have been a pissed of neighbor who got tired of this individual tearing up the neighborhood. I drive very nice near my home for this very reason.

There must be a police report on this somewhere!

You guys go out with some crazy puppy kicking fish murdering ladygirls.


You should be able to screen out that level of crazyness before hand. I am guessing it was apparent from the start but obfuscated by a big rack or similar.
