I usually make a mental note of any likely suspects 'pre-event' but in this case the car park is big enough to manoeuvre the Ark Royal with no problem (apart from, of course, there being insufficient water to provide buoyancy for said vessel,
). In this instance it wouldn't have made any difference anyway as the truck reversed in from the road, presumably in the process of making a 3-point turn.

No deliveries being made to the health centre and none around that time to the adjoining shopping centre either so I'm out of luck there. The CCTV camera is trained on the doctor's door for security so only captured the rear half of my car (side-on) and only up to the rear wheel (and not much above load-deck height, again side-on) of the culprit truck,
In my 38 years of car ownership (of various makes), I've now been 'hit whilst parked' 5 times and on every occasion it's been one of my Alfas,
. I'm beginning to think that they must have targets painted on them - invisible to me but shining out like beacons to everybody else,
At least the first 3 times, the other party owned-up to it but that's twice now (and both times with the Ti, my first ever brand-new car) that I've been left to foot the bill,
. So I will again find myself calling on the services of my friend Chris (M7ACD on here) at a local bodyshop to make my bella whole once more, unfortunately not in time for next weekend's Italian Car & Bike Day. He's confident that he can have the bumper repaired rather than having to replace it which will bring the cost in at around the £300 mark, including a new tail-light unit,
. That's the same as my excess anyway so I won't have go through the insurance, keeping my claims record unblemished for a little longer,
