need some cheering up

well it looks like Friday my POS ranger will be out of the shop finally after 2 months of waiting. for those that don't know or don't remember i smashed the ranger up on the 401 back on Feb. 21 i went to pick it up last weekend and it looked like crap scratches all over it and 2 new dents the insurance company says there not covering the damages from the shops workers and the shop is telling me to prove they did it. so now the ranger will be back I've tried to sell this thing or trade it off but no one wants it so I'm stuck with an 09 ranger that i paid $31,000 dollars for and it looks like a dump. at this point there's no hope of getting rid of it so what do you think i can do that might easy the pain of having this thing in my drive way reminding me every time i go outside that i got reamed up the ****.

i could refuse to pay them but then they can legally slap a lean on the truck which means if i ever go to sell it or trade it i have to get there permission first.

You paid 31,000 for a ranger???
I say you take it down a road light it on fire and blame it on an electrical problem caused by the shop.

one would think a repair shop would want a customers vehicle to look great when it leaves the shop.
