Nothing is better than getting a good parking space, but could there be a greatest space? Jalopnik readers think they've found the ten coolest parking spaces imaginable.
Welcome back to Answers of the Day — our daily Jalopnik feature where we take the best ten responses from the previous day's Question of the Day and shine it up to show off. It's by you and for you, the Jalopnik readers. Enjoy!
In the future, we will have driverless cars that will drive themselves home when we're not using them. While we're at the office, our cars will be driving themselves around, dropping the kids off for school, picking up the dry cleaning, and getting the groceries.
The problem is, that's the future. Now we have to leave our cars where we left them. It's a like disrespectful, like tying your dog to a tree while you go inside a coffee shop.
There are some parking spaces, though, that are a true honor for your car. They are gorgeous pieces of architecture, palaces for an automobile. These are our ten favorites.

10.) Parkhaus Engelenschanze
Most parking garages are dark, and claustrophobic. Not this one in Münster, Germany. The walls are glass, and there's a running creek with a waterfall in there, too.
9.) 1111 Lincoln Road Parking Garage, Miami
Take one look at Miami's wall-free, multi-use supergarage and you'd say "wow, that must have been absurdly expensive for a parking garage.'"You would be right, to the tune of $65 million.
8.) In A Yacht
Only a total loser parks his McLaren at the docks and then takes his yacht for a cruise. Real multibillionaires buy 158-foot UltraLuxum trimarans and park their supercars inside. Of course, it's just a concept so far, but plenty of yachts have garages for cars. Few are quite this stylish, though.
7.) McMurdo Station, Antarctica
Only a handful of regular cars have ever driven on Antarctica. That means McMurdo Station, the continent's biggest base, has the most exclusive parking spaces on Earth.
6.) In A Swiss Mountainside
This garage in Herder, Switzerland is sunken into the mountainside, and looks out over an alpine valley with five glassed-in concrete cubes.
5.) In Your Living Room
Holger Schubert won Architectural Digest's Design Driven contest in 2009, as well as an award by Maserati for parking his Ferrari 512BBi in his living room overlooking Brentwood, California. His neighbors hated him for it.
4.) The Ferris Bueller Garage
You know 370 Beech Street in Highland Park, Illinois as Cameron's dad's house in Ferris Bueller's Day Off. It recently went up for auction for $2.3 million. If you have the means…
3.) The VW Tower
In VW's massive Autostadt (Car City) in Wolfsburg, Germany, new cars awaiting delivery are stored in two 200-foot-tall towers with lifting platforms. There is no cooler parking garage in the world.

2.) On An Aircraft Carrier
Of course, you could also have your car park on an aircraft carrier. At $4.5 billion, the USS Ronald Reagan (pictured above) is probably the most expensive parking lot ever made.
1.) On The Moon
You have to be really cool to get to park your car on the moon. The lunar rover is still up there, probably with a million bucks in space-tickets by now. Technically not the world, but it's orbiting the world so we'll give it an exemption.
