I totally SUCK at that...


I'm always looking for corners or house's driveways to park near... so I can get in and out easilly



when someone invents 90º degrees wheel turn for all 4 wheels, he will be my hero, and should get an Oscar, Nobel and even a MTV award... EVERYTHING for him

it was awesome. pitch black, couldn't see much of anything. my father was in the car too, which didn't help. but i just pulled the car up next to the car infront of the space, turned the wheel all the way and said 'fuck it'. bam! got it in 1 try. given the space was adequate but man it's one the highlights of my life.


imagine that phone in my avatar is a big huge thumb

I live in a beach community just 6 blocks from the beach and it's entertaining to sit on my front porch watching people attempt to parallel park! I'm not that good at it, but some people REALLY SUCK AT IT!

I'm one of those people that totally suck at parallel parking! I avoid it all costs. Thankfully most places around here don't have many spots where you have to parallel park. I'd rather park several blocks away rather than try to attempt it.

I usually just look for the easiest park to get into, even if its a little bit of a hike.

same here! Hate parallel parking with an absolute passion. When I was first learning how to drive I did do it perfect the 1st time!

I suck at parallel parking. I think the last time I parallel parked right was when I took my driver's license test.

This is how I like to parallel park my car...


And I wonder why Karmic_Postmark doesn't like to ride in the car with me.

I used to not be able to parallel park... then I started driving into Boston, and now I can bend the fucking laws of physics, man. I can fit my Camry anywhere

Camry's kick ass in inner-city driving/parking. They're amazingly peppy.
