Hope I remeber this right. The Click and Clack Parallel Parking Method:

Pull all the way past the spot. As you start to back up, when the rear wheels are next to the other vehicle rear bumper, turn wheel full right.
As your front wheel are next to the other cars rear bumper start to turn opposite.
It has always worked for me.

Of course I see the Allentown method every day:
Pull up next to spot.
Turn on flashers.

Nigels, that means we were brother in-laws at one time, being married to twin sisters and all. Did you go to any of the covens, uh I mean family reunions?

I can't say mine was ugly. As a matter of fact, I tell everyone I actually had one of those trophy wives...........it just wasn't for first place.

That's how I was taught to PP and it always worked for me. Of course,when I was taught,the cars had bumpers back then.

I'm just going to ignore any further comments from you that contain the words Tail Numbers.

I will suggest that you do what your buddy OC did and look up 14 CFR 45 and try to understand what it says.
