Mine's from this past July 4th. Was following a buddy through a restaurant parking lot. I'd never been there, so I thought he knew what he was doing. He went in the back entrance and took the LAST parking spot back there. So I parked in the alley behind the building. Walking in, I found a better spot, so I decided to move my car. As I was backing out of the alley, which slightly curved to the right, I never saw the 3-foot high dumpster to the left of me, and BAM! -- swiped it with my front fender. Put a nice crease in it, and about a 1 1/2 inch scratch on the door in front of the mirror. The car was in the shop 36 hours later. When I got it back, they had also replaced the side mirror, which I hadn't noticed was scratched underneath. So I sold the mirror on eBay and got part of my deductible back. Total damage estimate was $1001. No pics of the damage (trying to forget), but they did a great job with the repairs.
