Parking Problems ?

I took this picture of when somebody parked on a friends works compound without permission, so they put somewhere a bit more out of the way (with the help of a fork lift)

Wow - pics a bit small but I get the idea - lol

What happened when the owner came back ?

Not bothered about my car - but if someone did that to my C5 - I would make RAMBO look like a geriatric - lol

I think they exchanged a few colourful words, luckily it is an old banger and they did know each other well, still very funny  :D

On the topic, where do you park your C5s?

I park mine outside in the rain :(

I do cover it with a car cover but its less than ideal for an awesome thing - thats why I only have one, just no where to put another plus Julia (boss) would moan.

No need for a bike lock, its a private no through road. Plus the area is all camera'd up.

Thing is if they want it; no matter how secure you think it is - they will take it.

I suppose. They could just carry it away. But with an A-Bike, you can pop it in the C5's boot/footwell drive to a secure ish/family members house whizz out the A-Bike and zooom away. I think Clive really has got transport covered.  :D Has anyone got an A-Bike?
