will you get any compensation for the damage to your car?

back in the 80,s my grandad was in his viva estate and was turning off a roundabout. some bloke in a new fiesta pulled out without looking and hit the vivas rear bumper and surrounding area.
viva damage small scratch and a dent to the bumper
fiesta damage new front end as the viva damaged all the front
the guy in the fiesta was gutted and my grandad just laughed at him.
insurance could not believe the lack of damage to the viva.
ha ha ha.

I rearranged a police panda car once, Nissan Cherry it was. I was in my dads Austin Princess 1800HL. Guess which one won!! Princess, wing, headlight, grill, Nissan, back wing, back panel, tailgate, bumper, fuel tank, and several other bits!!!! :shock:

When i first started driving (1st car sunglow yellow 4dr HC :lol: ) i took one of my grandad's gateposts out by locking round a bit too much when backing in(bear in mind that they were about 6 inches thick)!
only damage to the car,a mark on the bumper that came off with T-Cut! :lol: 8)

these vivas must be made of something special they seem to deflect damage well and i like that. makes it even more of a reason to buy one. :D
