I want this option!
« on: Aug 16, 2016, 09:20:50 pm »
Gotta love the Cadillac options from back in the day. Making donuts easy!  :heh: With parking spaces STILL shrinking, thanks to smart cars and mini coopers, this may need to be installed on some newer, full size cars and SUVs. Hell, I've seen spaces my Celica barely fits into.

Eh. I just take two parking spots these days. They wants smaller spaces? I'll take more than my share. And it's not illegal if it's private property. Granted they could call the tow company, but then they would have to explain why they towed a valued customers car and social media would eat it up. Of note, I don't do this everywhere. Only when the spots are retarded narrow and even then, I'm nice enough to go out to the edge of a parking lot. I've thought of going to the ikea in Portland and painting black over half of the yellow parking lines. Got that idea from Kramer...

That would be a blast!

Yeah, it pisses me off as well that the spots keep getting more narrow and short. I have a 12 passenger van, a '72 Cutlass convertible, a '72 Coupe DeVille and a '91 Sedan DeVille, and I look like a bleeding imbecile trying to shoehorn them into a space I can barely fit my Celica in. Park out in bumblefuck Egypt, take the two spaces, and just hike it.

It's healthier for you ;) (at least that's what I tell the hippies. They give no reply after that one).

When I drove a box truck I'd take up as many parking spots as possible so that I wouldn't get someone parking so close that I'd get basically blocked out.

They should add this feature to the Lexus park assist.
