that is certainly inspired by my friends Judd Engles in ohio... he mocked up this car in red back in 2009ish and the images float around the web. He is a hyper-miler. and indirectly runs a forum called weusecoupons.

if you cant parallel park you should not be driving


looks like it's only 215" 220" at the most (size of a 2008 Chevrolet Suburban)

so it should not be much an issue..


but the difficultly level will be about a 9 out of 10. because of the wheel base to length ratio

objects in the way such as trees power poles and fire hydrants will make it impossible to parallel park

It looks like this guy has used a lot of the techniques from this site. It would be great if he would start a thread and post some data on his results from the mods.
