Default Busted my GTP's rear bumper

yep yep yep... and

Backed out of the driveway this morning into my neighbors running WHITE Jeep Cherokee. Didn't even see it, so completely my fault. Jacked up the passenger corner of the rear bumper pretty good. Cold weather made it real brittle I guess. 5mph bumper FTL in the cold.



Ain't that a bitch. Now I need another black bumper valence. Anyone have one layin' around?

We've lived in the house for 4+ years and my wife and I have always said that one day we're going to hit his car as we're backing out JUST like what I did today.

As you're backing out, you can't see it in the rear view mirror and shoulder checking in either direction you won't really notice it there either. It was in the perfect blind spot.

ARGH.

Bummer, Dan. There was definitely a black GTP at Aurora U-Pull-It a few weeks ago, though I don't remember if the bumper was intact or even there.

The truck is being sold for $500. No insurance claim, no report made.

He was in his driveway after JUST moving the truck there. He came out and talked to me and was like WHOOPS, guess I shouldn't have parked there...

Don't lie EAGLE, you were busy looking at the HP tuners and didn't realize a car was in back of you.

Nope. Just trying to get to the train is all. Wasn't in a rush or anything. Just totally did not see it back there.
