My roommate seems to be a bit challenged when it comes to your basic, nose-first perpendicular parking. Last year I found his old car, a Chrysler 300, sneaking a little kiss with a Honda Accord (although that was more the other car’s fault). Now he’s scraping the nose of his new Maxima on the parking barriers. Before I saw this I actually let him drive the Alfa today, albeit with me in the car.

Not my coffee.

Ironically he’s actually almost as good at parallel parking as I am.
