Do you know how long those doors on the R8 are and how low your
seating position is.? If you are over 40 and want to get out you have
to park like that. 8)

And as usual, if you drive a car like that it of course doesn't mean that
you are a selfcentered a... who'd park on handicapped spaces, as well...

After watching that video again I'm not sure who the real pr**k was. The guy in white car snagging a parking space (but pulling as far to the right as he could to allow another car to park next to him) or the driver of the red car squeezing into the space (and blocking the doors of the white car). I don't speak Chinese, but from the voice inflection, and chuckles, of the two guys making the video I'd say the driver of the red car scored massive retaliation points (notice how he placed his vehicle as close to the white car as he could get), giving the driver of the white car only one option; to leave. Checkmate.

I was expecting the Parking Lot scene from Fried Green Tomatoes...

Love the mid '50's VW Beetle. Those are my favorites. I think I would prefer one of those to a 356. Fun.

And would be even more fun with a 356 boxer stuffed into it; the transaxle engine mounting surface is identical. Total Sleeper.

Actually, I would go with a fuel injected 2.0L Type IV 914 engine.

Gotta love those old VWs. Out here in CA the good ones (56-68) are old enough that they've fallen off of the DMV/EPA "smog certification" list ... meaning ... stuff anything you want into one, it doesn't have to be tested every two years !!!
