    I dont get that video. Ok, the car isnt fantasticly parked. Although he isnt taking up two spots, hes just on the line and where I work there are people that park like that all the ####ing time and it does my head in, because they drive little Yaris' and on the other side of their car theeres about 4000 meters of space. Infact, ive started leaving notes alerting them to their sub par parking skills.

    But that truck, theres no way it should be in that carpark to begin with. Its clearly to big to park in there unless the other car is leaving more than enough room.

    Hell since buying the wagon, Ive had to be picky where I park because its longer than my old car and longer than the a lot of the car spots and its also wider. I have trouble parking in underground carparks at the best of times.

    There may be history , but that's extreme way of getting the point across , a burning bag of poo might be left on the truck owners front door

    And how do you reckon that incident panned out? Boofhead in the truck might have had a very difficult time explaining his actions and you can bet his hip pocket hurt afterwards.

    What truck? I see a ute (unless i missed another pic/vid posted)

    Maybe he's just old and mistook the go pedal for the stop pedal. Happens often (more often than it should). If it was deliberate, he wouldn't bother getting out to look, he'd just leave after his plan was complete.

    It's a Silverado which in NA speak is a "truck". That said, I'm sure you already knew that didn't you ;)

    I wouldnt call a Silverado a ute, regardless of country.

    Pick Up is what I would refer to it at work in our catalogues, along with the Hilux/Ranger etc

    Wow, a Camira that was still driveable! I'm amazed! Last time I saw one (was in really good nick actually) was a year or 2 ago in Gosford. Haven't seen any since.
