We both pulled up at the same time. I was afraid she was going to drive into me. I had to take a picture just in case there was a surprise when I came back.

Feel free to add any of your scary parking situations.

Had a jacked up 4X4 back over the front of my 67 911S 20+ years ago. Put a big notch in the luggage compartment lid with its trailer hitch and the driver didn't even know that she had hit me. Fortunately I saw it happen and she was a client of a lawyer in my building, who she had been visiting, so I could track her down. Still a major bummer!

I've learned to keep some space around other vehicles in the Lotus. Drivers, especially yahoos, in their tall pickups and SUVs here in Houston cannot see low-lying Loti on roads and in parking lots (or act like they don't). Its scary, but all you can do is be vigiliant or never drive the Lotus.

Okay, a little off topic, but I park like a jackass at any given opportunity.

Ha. And I thought I was the only person paranoid enough to take pictures of questionable cars parked next to me (when I had my Elise).

Its much better to get 2 shots. One of the situation, another of the plate. :D I had a lady back over the front of my Silver Anniversary Corvette while I was at the fuel pump :mad:...I guess that counts as a parking situation heh.

I've been doing it for years with all my sports cars. I'd rather look silly then come back and look helpless.

I wanted to post up the picture of the Elise 'parked' under a police car with the police car's rear wheels off the ground, but I can't find it. :(
