I would never park with my car pointed to the southwest.

There is no one else in the parking lot. Possibly parked there for a photo shoot.

Well, that's different. Sure, OK in the southern hemisphere.

It was my car, and yes. You can see me standing in the shade to the lower right if you look closely :-)

Those that visit Cars and Coffee Folsom may recognize the parking lot.....

Didn't that photo appear as part of a newspaper story about a C7 driver who had to be sedated after he suffered mental meltdown over being unable to decide which parking place would be the safest?

If I was actually parking there and not shooting photos, I would back into this spot so my drivers door would not get blocked and get tight up against the curb.....

No longer park next to concrete islands! It was my prior MO before I added Stage 3 winglets to my Grand Sport Splitter! They stick out another 2 1/2 inches per side past the Stage 2 winglets.

When I still had the Stage 2 winglets was parking at a hospital with very few open spaces and found one next to an island. But when I backed out, turned the wheel to fast and had a minor scrape of the right winglet! Fortunately had already purchased the Stage 3 winglets so no harm done. But now they stick out even further.

Now parking in the empty slot one away from an island at the end of empty parking lots!

Looks like driver forgot to set parking brake and the car drifted into the center of the lot.

You never know when they might kick on the sprinkler system. Nothing like good hard water on your finish . . .
