Imagine, if you will, that you own a 2012 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 Coupe. To get this car, you traded in a 1969 Camaro SS and a 2011 Camaro SS. You take your new ZL1, which only has 10,000 miles on it, into the dealership you bought it from to deal with an issue with the paint, which is covered under warranty.

You then get a call from said dealership, explaining that an employee came in, outside of business hours, and decided to take your 580-horsepower sports car out for a joyride. During said joyride, the employee just so happened to wrap your ZL1 around a telephone pole.

That's exactly what John and Debbie Hooper claim they are going through, after an employee at a Georgetown, Delaware's First State Chevrolet allegedly wrecked their ZL1. This incident, which the Hoopers say happened back in December, has set fire to the forums of Camaro5, which is now home to a 26-page saga covering the Hoopers' dilemma.

The couple is presently in a fight with the dealership to get a replacement for their car. Insurance companies are involved and naturally, the Hoopers have lawyered up. From the sounds of the most recent updates, the dealership attempted to offer the Hoopers a replacement ZL1 that had more miles and options they didn't want, which the couple turned down.

You can read the entire long, arduous affair over at Camaro5. We also have some images up top of the wrecked ZL1 in question, kindly provided by Camaro5. Finally, we want to know what you think the dealership should be doing to try to patch things up. Head into Comments and have your say on the matter.
