This was a couple months ago in downtown ("Old Town") Scottsdale, Arizona. Underground garage. Single car space with concrete walls on both sides. I loved it so much that I Instagrammed a picture at the time.

I started my summer internship today and found a parking lot full of spaces like these:





And what's even better is that these are so far away from the building that no one even parks out there

Hate it when that happens.

For any of you lowered peeps: Ever park very close to a curb and then realize your or your passenger can't get out without hitting it?

I've found all three of these in the last few months.



This one's a bitch to get to. You literally have to back down the row to back in. There's NO way to pull head-in.


My favorite on the top level of a parking garage that NOBODY uses.

That might be the cleanest Cobalt I have ever seen. Does it have a thread?

Had a nice parking spot at least a dozen spaces down from anyone else and as close to the wall (any maybe slightly over the line) as possible at one of the local malls today. Got back to my car and some shithead parked his Lancer in the spot next to me

At least there were that many empty spots at your mall. I had to go to mine yesterday and drove around for 15 minutes trying to find a spot. I ended up parking between an Escalade and a 7-series, both of which were on the line. Luckily I wasn't driving my car so I was able to park

It's fine! No issues at all in our apartment complex. I was hoping to get a garage, though
