Four Corners

You may have already seen our gallery of dented Camrys. In case you haven’t, or you don’t know what’s going on with us posting pictures of Camrys all the time, let me clarify a little bit.

Basically, we have noticed a few things about Camrys. The first being that they are EVERYWHERE. They are pretty much always either white, or the more popular gold color. And the puzzling part about them is that more often than not, when you see one on the road, it has a dent on the corner of the rear bumper.

I haven’t been able to find a proper explanation for this. I have a couple theories, but none of them are perfect. Hell, we have a friend who drives a gold Camry with both corners of his bumper smashed up (from him, separate incidents) and even HE can’t explain this phenomenon.

My first theory is that Camrys are so pervasive that the drivers of other cars have subconsciously blocked them out of their minds, only to be reminded of them when they smack into the corner of one.

The other possibility is that Camry drivers are just unaware people. I mean come on, they chose to drive a Camry, how much thought could they possibly give to any other aspect of being on the road? This theory is shattered, however, by our previously mentioned friend, who didn’t choose his Camry, he inherited it, and is definitely a sharp guy. It just doesn’t make sense.

In case you weren’t paying attention to the photos, yes, that is one Camry that has been hit on every single corner!

Anyways, take a look at the gallery if you haven’t done so yet, and while you’re there, take a look at the rest of the galleries we have up now. We do have other stuff besides Camrys, you know. And if you happen to see a dented Camry and are able to get a picture, let us know and we will put it up in our gallery.

About Mike Ross

I love anything you can drive. But I love it even more if it has a small block Chevy or Ford motor, a turbo, four wheel drive, is a hatchback, or was made in the 80s. My ideal car would be a combination of all of these things, and I'm working on building a time machine so I can go back to the 80's and convince Chevy and Ford to collaborate on a twin-engine, single turbo 4x4 XR4Ti/Fox Mustang/Third Gen F-body and hide one in a mineshaft for me to recover in brand new condition. Look for a blog post about it just as soon as it happens. Or maybe it already did, and I've already posted about it in the future and the internet just needs to catch up with it. Okay, my head hurts, never mind.
