Re: Nice bit of parking

I saw that a while back on a friday night TV show and we were amazed how he could go through all that everytime he wants to use his car. It would drive me mad.
2 jobs back I used to drive a berlingo van for my employer and was out one evening with a colleague. I found the smallest of spaces (only one available) and decided to parallel park in it. Now I'd had my licence less than a year at this point and my colleague was an experienced driver who started becoming very vocal that I was going to hit the car in front as i swung the front of the van into the bay. I never touched it or the vehicle behind and to this day I've never managed to replicate the performance. I didn't even have to shuffle the van around either - it just glided in smoothly and I straightened the front wheels and put the handbrake on. I was very pleased with that. Oddly though over the years I've noticed that the less I drive the worse I get behind the wheel. If I'm in bed with a cold for a week I feel like I'm learning to drive again the first time I get back in behind the wheel. Weird huh.
I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

excellent security too.  no one can nick his car, nor get into his house from the 'garage.'

I'm disappointed, I was hoping to see him squeezing through the sun roof Sad
