Angry worst halloween ever!!

I went to berkely this halloween as castro last year was fun but wanted to go somewere different. Filled up on biodiesel at the biofuel oasis over there i was with my best friend and his girlfriend. I was in my 87 300D, i park it and we walk around and stop to eat at a nations burger place. My best friends girl collects some candy from some houses and we called it a night. Walked back to my car to see my grill lifted out of place. Butt prints on the hood as if someone sat on the hood to try to rip out the hood star. 2 scratches on the hood one chipped the paint exposing the primer and the other scratch was so deep it scratched the bare metal I assume this was from someones costume or metal buttons on the back side of some jeans. Touch-up paint will only do so much in this case, i guess ill have to replace the hood as the butt prints are dented in. I tried popping them out by hitting the underside with a rubber mallot but no luck.

Damn kids messing with my benz!

Halloween is a horrible time for a Mercedes, people just like to screw with them I guess. Sorry man, that blows. The worst that happened to mine was some silly string, and eggs last year. Washed off though.
