I have. And there are Chargers here with nads dangling down too. Not proud of that fact either

Oregon has some real hicks. Most people don't think so but we've got some folks in this state who would not look out of place in 'Deliverance'.

I've come to the realization that there are rednecks and hillbillies everywhere in the world so none of this surprises me.

Maybe the spot was designed for an F-750 or GMC 6500. Once you've seem one of those in person, F-350s and Hummers look like Miatas.

Crazy looking parking spot.

Sorry about your transmission. I'm waiting for mine to take a shit on me. Btw I don't think I've ever seen your TL before. Looks great

Thanks T. Had to take it when I saw it.

Knew she would bite the dust eventually...just hoped it wouldn't be so soon.

Some of you were concerned about people trying to wedge themselves in between your big space and the one next to it. With this spot, you don't even need to fret about door dings, period. Check it out!

I wish all parking spots were designed like this...



This spot is the first thing I thought about when I saw this thread. And if there is a fire, you can easily protect your car...

I can only imagine the glare I would get if I said that! I don't know if it is even worth trying just to see the reaction.

I've to admit I did said it one time just to see the reaction on my wife but on a serious note I always try parking the car far away to avoid dings.

Fiancee? Not yet

She complains how I spend "more money on my car than on her" but she knows I park where I want when I drive somewhere

I love driving to big malls with my friends, because I can pass by the main entrance, drive past plenty of good parking spaces, out until cars are practically nonexistent, then a little bit more and then park. Drives them crazy.
