Hit and Run

Some asshole hit my Miata in the Kirkland QFC parking lot Sunday afternoon.  Of course they left the scene of the crime without leaving a note.  You can't tell me that they didn't realize they hit my car.  Bastards.



I called the Kirkland PD and spoke to an officer, but there isn't really much they can do without a witness.  At times like this, I really hope there is something like Karma.  I hope Karma is giving the perp what they deserve and giving to them hard and often.

6/8 UPDATE:  So I went to Queen City Auto Rebuild this afternoon for an estimate.  They work on the local exotics and did my 164 and GTV in the past.  The estimate:  $2,000!  Anyone have any recommendations for something a tier or two below Queen City on the Eastside?

6/12 UPDATE 2:  Went to Millen Auto in Redmond. $2K from them as well. Bodywork is expensive!  Tuesday I visit the Allstate claims adjuster. We will see just how good the hands really are. I think after this I'm going to move it to a Hagerty classic policy.

BC visits Cars & Coffee Shoreline

I found out about a Cars & Coffee event that takes place every weekend from 8 to 10 at the Central Market in Shoreline.  I got up early this morning and fired up the GTV and headed over to Shoreline. The weather was perfect this morning.




I parked the GTV next to a '73 911 Targa.

That's a rubber chicken hanging off the bumper of the second Volvo.






It was a fun morning kicking tires with a bunch of like minded individuals.  Verdict:  I am going to make this a Saturday AM ritual.  Next time I think I will drive the NA...
