Other Sports Cars Parking Next to You

So I was at the driving range yesterday and parked pretty far away from other cars with no one next to me. When I'm about to leave, I see this.

Haven't had this happen yet. I think they think they're better than you
I like how you debadged your car and then re-badged with a vanity plate?

On a side note, I wonder how may people park "nose in"? I always back-in when I park. I find that if someone clips you, it is easier to replace a front fender than a quarter panel! Plus I like to pull straight out. Hate the visibility of the Z....

I think it's more like they know you won't ding their cars and they won't ding yours either.

I'd rather come back to my car and see nice cars that show that the owners actually care about their cars than a junk car parked crooked and over the lines. They trust that you won't ding their car and they won't ding yours. I've had 350z's parked next to my car on several occasions. I'm happy that they do that.

LOL... Unfortunately for me I had the ugliest piece of shiet van park next to my car one time. I don't know if he thought his van was a beauty queen or if he was just trying to screw with me. That rust bucket was ugly and he parked pretty close to me. Good thing he had enough respect to not ding my car.

The dork in the Camaro does not know how to park.

I love it when people park their fancy cars next to mine. I do the same thing. I like to park next to other Z's whenever possible, but also next to sporty cars.

I usually park nose in, but I feel you. I hate backing out in this car.

Once I parked next to a bunch of outlaw motor cyclists, because I knew they did not want to be door dinged, and would show the same respect. At least my left side was safe. No problems either way.
