I know not everyone agrees with this, but as far as I can tell, life can be interesting, and the purpose of a Homeowners’ Association is to prevent any evidence of that fact from being demonstrated. At least that’s what I’m taking away from the situation with Tony Buzbee, his authentic WWII Sherman tank, and the HOA…
Pictured above is my car, a 2008 Honda Fit Sport, parked snugly Wednesday on my street in Sunnyside, Queens. I was lucky to find that spot—just 100 feet from my door—and the rules for that side of the street meant it could stay there until Monday. All of which was great, until road crews showed up Thursday morning,…
You know those stupid novelty signs that say things like “Mustang Parking Only” that dorks like to put in their garages? They’re harmless fun, right? Of course they are. But you know, you could make them a whole lot less harmless if you replaced handicapped spots with signs like that, in exchange for money from one…
Somewhere deep in the Earth’s irritable bowels below Los Angeles there lies a parking garage with one spot so gloriously wide, so completely ensconced by paint and concrete that if you can claim it, your chances of collecting new dents in your doors while parked drops to almost zero. Imagine it.
The woman who fell seven stories in her BMW 4 Series from the Littlefield Parking Garage in Austin, Texas has shared what the terrifying experience was like in a new interview.
Police have released video showing the moment a BMW 4 Series fell seven stories after driving off the edge of an Austin, Texas parking garage—the second such incident to happen in less than a year, which is terrifying.
At some point, installing sturdier railing might be a good idea for Austin’s Littlefield Parking Garage. The same garage we live-streamed less than a year ago as a car was dangling from its side just had a BMW fall from its seventh floor, reports the Austin American-Statesman. The driver was taken to a local hospital…
“I’ve never seen you happier,” my wife told me one day last week. She shook her head and rolled her eyes. As I started to do a little dance around our living room, she looked at me with bewilderment. The reason for my burst of happiness? I had parked our car and wouldn’t have to move it for more than a week.
Here’s a lesson in how to park good. Step 1: Acquire a powerful rear-wheel drive vehicle, such as this ‘JZX100' Toyota Mark II, complete with a powerful turbocharged 1JZ or 2JZ straight six. Step 2: find a empty and remote parking lot. Step 3: big, wide, sweeping, wonderful donuts.
What would you do with $664,000 to spend? Buy a house on a quiet property along a lake somewhere? Take an extended trip to Antartica? Buy an expensive parking space? If you’re Kwan Wai-ming, you’d buy the primo parking.
It turns out that, in Canada, a “real place,” you could just, like, park your car in a spot. For a decade. And then you own it. The entire parking spot. That’s it. It doesn’t matter if someone else owned it. You own it now. Somehow.
In what I can only liken to some sort of a dystopian horror scenario for cars, one of the best accounts on Instagram posted a video of a tow truck driver having no qualms whatsoever about dragging a helpless Mercedes out of the Tesla Fremont parking lot at an, um, uncomfortable angle.
Maybe it was a move that started out with the best of intentions. I’d like to believe that, anyway. But this Chinese city’s attempt at helping women park more easily by giving them larger parking spaces doesn’t come off as anything but ridiculously patronizing and possibly dangerous.
Some parking garages are a confusing maze of drab concrete and flickering fluorescent lights. Whenever I park in one, I double- and triple-check that I know the section and row that I’m parked in. Sometimes, I even take a picture. I’m terrified of losing my car in one of those things. And then there’s this guy, who…
Oy. During a seemingly interminable presentation for the big Faraday Future reveal of its data-point named first production car, the FF 91, the company’s senior vice president of R&D and engineering, Nick Sampson, appeared on stage with the company’s main financier, Jia Yueting. Sampson asked it to park itself. It did…
One of the great conveniences about riding a motorcycle is ease of parking. And at no time could that come in handier than if you’re flying out of town for Thanksgiving this week. Thankfully, there are more options than you may think.
Remember the epic rescue of a Toyota 4Runner dangling off the side of an Ausin parking garage? Driver William O’Connor recounted his experience of hanging by mere cables and having to jump out of the precariously-hanging vehicle to the Austin American-Statesman, and absolutely none of it sounds like fun.
Never a dull moment in Austin, Texas.
“Don’t park like an asshole.” Yea, well, dragging a parked car across a parking lot when it’s not in neutral is also being an asshole. In this video, anarchy prevails.
