This all came about from the experience of a friend who had recently spent a
fortune restoring a DB3 Aston Martin. He left it in the drive of a friend's
home where he and his wife were over-nighting prior to attending a
multi-make Owners Club annual meeting. On returning to the car the next
morning, he found two words, RYCH **** scrawled with a nail (or somesuch) in
the middle of the newly painted bonnet. Much angered and harrowed by this,
he covered and taped two large pieces of paper to cover the offending text
and on arriving at the meeting was refused entry - even though the covered
text was 'deemed as inappropriate for a family event.'
The final insult was that as the car had been resprayed with a special blend
of metallic silver, the later repaint did not match - so the whole car had
to be done again.
