Wait where..Get that Stingray stored for winter!!
It snowed in NY over the weekend!
I alwats do it but way in the backHey GQ... just messin' with ya.
But yes that is a good move. I found out with my '98 Pace Car that when I tried to take up too much room for parking, like 2 spaces or diagonal, it just pissed off people more and the bastrds would just take it out on the car instead of waiting to confront me.
Not worth pissing off jealous people!
I always park my rides out in the "lower 40" with one side tucked up against a curb. That way I've got one side protected.
Tried that with camaro. Failed people still parked next to in back or where ever & scratched & dented it. Costing me hundreds of dollars fixing it :'(Atleast your parking properly.
Parking improper almost guarantees a dent or a scratch a tow or cars parking even closer so you cant get in your car.

I do the same. Perhaps I have been very lucky, but thankfully I have found people tend to respect 'nicely' kept cars. Over the years none of my cars have receive dings or scratches and I do take them to restaurants, shopping malls, Costco, etc. I seek out the end spot as Chip mentioned he does, next to a curb and park it snug to the curb side, so only half is vulnerable. By snugging the curb it affords extra space between my car and the door of the car that eventually parks next to me. I also try to note unusual conditions such as on windy days where the wind could easily catch a door when it is opened and cause it to hit the car next to it. Under those circumstances I park so into the wind. So far it has worked well. IMO I think you are asking for trouble when you park across two spaces regardless of how far out in the lot you do that. This past weekend my wife and I took a trip in RedHot to a discount mall about 45 miles from where we live, and I used the same technique. When we came out people were taking pictures (and posing for pictures next to her) but no issues with the car that parked next to RedHot.I always park my rides out in the "lower 40" with one side tucked up against a curb. That way I've got one side protected.
If in crowded parking lot, oh god yes. I think if ur at the far end from the store 200ft away from any other car, I don't think so.I agree that people would respect the car,but I don't want to take that chance.I have never taken up 2 spaces other than at work,I think that is asking for trouble.
