Yobs overturned a car and put a block of concrete the window of another as they rampaged through a village over Halloween.
A Ford Ka was turned on its side in Over Minnis, New Ash Green, just before 8.50pm on Tuesday October 31, while another car was vandalised in nearby Knights Croft.
Justin Harris, 56, who posted pictures of the overturned car on social media, said he had heard teenagers running around screaming in the run up to the vandalism attack.
"A neighbour heard a big crash outside his house, ran out and found the car on its side," he said. "We went out and to our disbelief there it was.
"It's disgusting; they've got no respect. If people knock on the door for Halloween doing 'trick or treat' that's one thing, but you don't expect to have your car turned over.
"The police came in the morning and took details but haven't come back since."
Although Mr Harris' wife had been trying to sell the Ka for £600, they had since had to sell the damage vehicle for only £200.
And he said the vandals had also struck in Knights Croft, where they smashed the window of a Vauxhall car, and that villagers were calling for the gang to be brought to justice.
"Workmen had been digging up the pavement so there was a big pile of concrete," he added. "The yobs picked up a piece of concrete and threw it through the car window.
"These kids just run amok. There's no police and they're running around doing what they want. It's just ridiculous.
"I've been here 20 years and this type of thing has only occurred the last couple of years.
"You hear of garages and cars being broken into all the time and you never see any police."
"People were really angry," he added. "Nothing seems to be done. I understand from the police point of view that it's difficult but if they were around here, and if they monitored Snapchat and Facebook it might not take them too long."
Kent Police say they received a report of criminal damage involving a car being turned onto its side in Over Minnis, New Ash Green, at 8.49pm on Tuesday October 31.
They said officers attended and conducted initial enquiries, but that no arrests have been made.
