as some of you may already know...i have custom installed a set of s-10 altezzas<~ (sp) on my thunderbird...well today i went to the mall to do a little early christmas shopping and when i returned to my car some one knocked/kicked my tail lights and busted them out!!!!...i was like WTF!??!!....ne ways needless to say i was pis*** about it....then when i went to get into my car to leave there was a piece of paper threw in my seat that said i shouldnt put "JAP Sh**" on a wonderful american piece of work! or something like that the letter is still in my car....

and i dont think insurence will do anything about this because it is custom done ...and i was told that they mainly only cover stuff like that is it was built with them on there!!

thanks for listening to my sad story
Jay:(

Maybe the police could get fingerprints off the paper, though I doubt they'd go to the trouble. That's really a drag! While I'm personally not a big fan of Altezzas, at least you've GOT an American car. I wonder if those same people go around bashing rice cars because they're Japanese. 'Makes me ashamed that these so called "lovers" of American cars put such a bad face on their citizenship...

do you have pics, (before they were broken) my thought was that the S-10 light would be the closest size to the birds also, if someone was will to put the time in on it. E-mail me some pics, so you don't get nasty responses from the post of the pics. I'd like to see them. did you shave the center lights to match?

send the pics to me also if you can. Sounds like it took alot of custom bodywork to get those lights on the car.

That sucks man, people are so stupid. I'd also like to see some pictures of that, and keep that paper, who knows, maybe if you can find the right detective they'll go and finger print it. Also, maybe you could talk to the admin's of the mall, video cameras and such are generally posted outside.

i do. i have respect for other people's property no matter what my personal opinion is not to destroy it. i have clear tailights on my truck even though they are factory i wouldnt want someone bashing them in. i want my property respected like i respect others...

you can rag on someone's taste all you want...just dont destroy their stuff.

well, the difference is that lights in the front of the car are meant to illuminate the road ahead of you while the rear lights are only for marking. clear lights up front look good and clean cut, clear lights in the rear look atrocious



but thats just my opinion. i guess i could hang sunglasses from my butt crack and itd be stylish to some people.

Despite taste, it takes one lowly SOB to go after some one's property, instead of confronting the individual. I'd never put Altezzas on any car of mine, nor would I pass up the chance to help you hunt down the bastages that did it and bust their lights out.

I agree what was done was totally wrong. And I hope you can somehow get even in some way.

As to the other discussion interjected about clear tail lights, yes, I would probably leave a rice ticket on the guys car. Hell my truck came from the factory with clear taillights, and I ordered the normal red F150 lamps that day. Sold the clear crap to some idiot for $250, the new red ones were only $80 from 5 star. Good portion of a payment made by simply dericing the truck, not a bad deal.:D
