Re: People that Key cars
My first new car was a little Escort 1.3L in sand beige (the desert rat). It was a company car, and clearly nothing posh. It lived outside my terraced house in Royal Park Avenue in Headingley, someone carved a big A and a W in the bonnet one night..and I mean carved. I was so very upset, even though it was a company car.
Then about eleven years ago here in Boston my wife's Skoda Favorit Estate was badly scored, front back and both sides, and we know who did it. It was a lad who threatened one of our neighbours with a hammer, and my wife was watching, and made it clear she was watching..so he came back that night with a screwdriver. We could never prove it, but the scrote has done a stretch inside since then I understand. He's probably about 25 now. It was an insurance job and came back looking just fine, and we moved anyway soon after.
I had a winch nicked off my boat trailer just before Easter. Don't you just love these people (actually, a kind feller on another forum has given me his old winch..which is what restores your faith in people somewhat)
