Self Parking Cars

If you live in any type of urban area then you know that parking can sometimes be a nightmare. I’ve lived in the boroughs of New York for the last 20 years which means there have been nights that I’ve circled the blocks for the better part of an hour just looking for a spot. It’s a painful experience that requires a lot of patience. Once you find a spot there is then the daunting task of parallel parking. At this stage in my life I consider myself to be an expert in this field, however for those out there who find this challenging, a device designed in the 1950’s may just hold the answer. The system, known as the “Park Car”, utilized the spare tire in conjunction with the drive shaft to literally swing the rear end of the car out into the street, thus eliminating the need to parallel park. This film is from the 1950’s which is unfortunate as this is one of those rare ideas that actually looked to have had some promise. Too bad it never caught on as there are millions of crappy drivers out there that could have benefited from this baby. Click through for the video.

    cool find! The best part is when the guy swings it in the garage with only a couple of inches to spare. Think this was thought up in old Detriot, or in a custom shop in Cali?
