Is this the ultimate Valet Parking? Inside the hotel lobby!

Actually a group of hotels including the one I was staying at in Milan were holding a contest to win a 911 Carrera. My hotel had the car on display in the lobby.

When they hold the drawing and they pull the winning card, what do you think their reaction will be if the card has the name of some guy in California on it? My guess is they'll call "do-over" and pick again until they get a local winner. But the idea is great - winning a 911 Carrera from a drawing held in Milan, Italy

What Italians are driving...

a Smart car (made by Mercedes Benz I believe). There are MANY of these in the cities in Europe.

My associate traveling with me asked me if I thought I could tip one of these over with one push. I'm sure it would take more than one

How Europeans are parking...

It's especially funny to see Smart cars sometimes parked in between other cars along a street backed up against the curb...

I coulda had a lot of fun with my Land Crusher SUV in Europe!

The Mini is getting to be a fairly popular car over there although it is rather expensive compared to the many other cars of its size (and many that are smaller).

Vegas has rentals that are about that big.

A cross between that and a golf cart. All driven by young girls as best I could tell.
