Last night Mrs. Shadow & I went to a Ghengis Khan exhibit at the Franklin Institute (museum in Philly). It was great, but the garage did NOT fit my truck well & now I have a dent in my beautiful truck 😑. Ever damage your car in a Parking garage??

When I got a great new spot in the garage at my office, I swore I would not be one of those people who hit the pole. I was. I didn't even notice that I'd hit it until I saw the scratch on my front corner the next evening. 😣

While I've never damaged it, my truck most definitely does not fit in a parking garage. I usually have to park elsewhere, or much further away...

Me too...if im in an area of the city that I dont already know what garage to go to, usually the first two tell me to fuck off and I end up at one 6 blocks away.

I was there is January and that garage is scary low. We were in my friends car so we were ok but not surprised about your truck. Very cool museum. Bet that was a neat exhibit.

I rarely go to a parking garage. Never have damaged my car. I do know where we had our company Christmas party last year a coworker who had a truck like yours couldn't go in the parking garage, to tall and to long to maneuver.

I was in a parking garage in DC with my ex and she was driving my 4Runner and cut the wheel too sharp and hit the wall and dented it

Basically what happened.

The first two levels were close but the last level was a little tighter and bang.

Wow basically the same story it wasn't that cars first dent (it was my first car) but I loved that 97 4Runner

I haven't, but my wife has. Several times in fact. She parks in a garage every day, and she's not very good at it.

I'm sorry about your truck. That's a real bummer! The only damage my van has suffered in a parking garage was inflicted by another driver in Atlanta. 😁

I hope the exhibit was enough to make you feel a bit better that about the truck. It must've been awesome!

No, but I've had major hail damage because my employer doesn't provide covered parking.

That's sucks! So far no parking garage incidents for me.

How was the exhibit?

Exhibit was AMAZING!!!

Took about an hour to see everything.

And bc it was after the actual museum closed, there was just us and another couple in the entire place.

If anyone is in the Philly area I would recommend checking it out before the exhibit leaves.

In my defense, I work in the city and park in garages at least twice a week and this is the first time Ive hit anything.

The clearance was ridiculous in this garage too. It was 6'2" which is about a .5" less than the roof of my truck.

If I can find a compact that will tow a boat and a trailer I'll downside. Lol

No but my car isn't very big. I'm sorry about your dent. 😕

I filed it under "shit happens".

This is why I pay a fortune in Insurance in NJ.

I'll let them fix it.

Hey Fastshadow do you like your governor Chris Christy? A friend told me he is moderate and knows how to compromise and make deals, what do you think?

Most ppl in NJ hate his guts. Hes fucked over a lot of ppl in this state. Hes had some success bc the last shitbag Corzine all but bankrupted the state over 12 years so by comparison Christie doesnt look as bad.

Ppl outside of Jersey love him. Hes only moderate bc he doesnt give a shit about things that far right republicans care about like religion.

Ahh. Yeah he's not even leading in NJ.
