Doesn't the wall always win? Well maybe not, when we were sitting in McDonald's once and a minivan came crashing through the wall I think the wall lost that one and it was a good thing nobody was in the window seats! The minivan drove away but the wall didn't, of course the wall was a lot more window than bricks. The glass flew everywhere!

The car has been laid up for days getting new shocks and struts.
Apart from the BMW and the Opel DD we have yet another vehicle taking up space, a renter of one of the apartments is parked here because of street vandalism.
So today I do the three car shuffle to get an Audi in which is leaking Diesel, mine had to go out.
for awhile, sneaking between wall and parked car I swung out too soon going backwards.
Saturday I would have had all the room in the yard to myself.
Iīm surprised you didīnt hear me cussing.
Tomorrow Iīll visit my favorite body/paintshop just for an estimate.

I hate fixing stinky diesels.

The body shop owner looked at it and reckoned he can repair the tin.
Said there was plenty of space behind the fender as well to work it.
He knows the car, and said it makes a change to work on decent metal rather than the usual Eurotrash we have here.
