      Took this with my cell phone today, the left rear was smashed in, and front bumper was completely broken and scraping down the highway. Did they get a quote for a paintjob and decided to take matter into their own hands?

      The paint was probably getting bad (faded or peeling)...

      And there is that point where you have to decide if a car is worth a proper paint job.

      Do I go with a nice shiny professional paint job, or spend 150 bucks on crap and beer and go art car?

      Why would anyone care about what someone else does to their car?

      Why would somebody care so much about what others post on some random website?

      I suspect there is some hipster involvement.
