Question How many spots do you take parking?

I see that its a big debate. My .02 is that just park far away in 2 lines. Its not that hard and people more that less go after people that take up 2

Last night I took three. It made me happy, but I'm an employee(bouncer) and I was late so where the car stopped, I got out. I usually take two near the back, or hug a cornering line, but given the right circumstances, I occasionally go for as many as possible

Just one. Although I will park away from the crowds. Taking two, IMHO, invites negative attention.

I'm with the one spot crew. I park a little further where no one parks. 2 spots is just asking for douche bags to take notice. I try to avoid that as much as possible.

I never take two just because I'd rather have a door ding than have my car keyed or my tires slashed. I just park far away to reduce the risk of door dings.

taking two spots in a parking lot is just like begging to be keyed.

I saw a Ford GT in an Apple Bees parking lot, parked in one spot with everyone else. Your Camaros aren't that special to take up 2 spots.. lol

Edit: One spot by the curb or very far away. My wife likes it, because I always princess park her....

Just one here, but way out in the boodocks, it is also a good excuse to just walk a little bit more for a little exercise.
Lots of times I will usually find other nice cars and muscle cars to park next to. I figure if they have a nice car then they would appreciate you taking a little extra care getting out of your nice car. I have learned to not park next to dirty, dinged, rusty, crappy pieces of $hit cars that obviously the owner doesn't care about. I also stay away from any construction/utility/ work trucks, especially the ones with the service beds.
If you take up two spots (even out in the boondocks) people will go out of their way to adjust your paint job to automatically ruin your car property value, or even make it so you are looking to purchase a new set of tires. This day and age many folks out there are miserable and cannot stand to see others making a life for themselves and having decent things. When you do something like take up two spots then you are just asking for it IMHO.

I keep reading the comments about cars getting keyed because someone parked in two spots. Does this really happen? I have never actually met someone who has had this happen to them because they double parked. Usually, if you car gets this type of treatment, it means that you did more than piss someone off because you took up two spots.

This. I also make a point of not parking under trees. I've had cars get water inside the cabin due to leaves blocking the drain on the evaporator housing.
