I KNEW IT!!!!!!!! Saving this one for a rainy day, when my DH gives me that "look" and points out how close I got to the car.... He doesn't believe me when I tell him that I can get that close without hitting it because I REALLY AM THAT GOOD!

I cannot parallel park worth a hill of beans. Even in my little Prius. Used to also drive a big F250 diesel truck with a full bed. I would walk a mile rather than try to parallel park it!

Same here. I avoid parallel parking like the plague. I saw a student at UVM park once, most amazing parking job I've ever seen, and this was 30 years ago. By the time she was done, without striking anything, there was no more than 2-3 inches clearance front and back.

I've always KNOW women are better drivers then men. I can drive circles around my dh (we both have had CDL's) I've paralled parked a shuttle bus ladies. My personal car is a Mazda 3 (I honestly prefer driving either dh's truck or a bus) I've been forced off road in my Mazda by male drivers

...Mazda 3. Even if I had Romney's stash of cash, this would be my car of choice.

I love my Mazda, but want a Mazda CX9 or 7. When I say I've been run off I-5/I-90. I really mean I've ended up in the medium twice now both times by semi's {and very stupid MEN drivers} the first time in happen I called the CEO of the company that owned the truck & screamed at him he had better be thankful it was me and not a min van with a scoccer mom & bunch of kids because he would be dealing with a wrongful death suit. This guy got all nasty at me what do you know about it? I informed him I was also a CDL driver B class & that's what I know about it.
