An Actual Interesting Article from Yahoo Autos

5 lessons in luxury car design from the guys who park them - Yahoo! Autos

Auto impressions from valets. I like the last bit:
After all, how many Ferrari drivers are going to admit that their pride and joy could be improved?
I don't know, Ferruccio Lamborghini?

When I worked at a high end dealer, I got to drive a lot of different cars myself. 911's were my favorite. I never did get to drive a Ferrari. Or a Smart, even though we had at least one of each for sale.
Anyone who thinks a 300D is fast drives too slow.

83 300D Turbo with manual conversion, early W126 vented front rotors and H4 headlights 360,xxx miles
08 Triumph Street Triple 28,xxx miles, lowered 10mm in front, Pirelli Angel GT tires, EBC HH brake pads, otherwise stock.

lol, thats a pretty interesting article!

I worked an airport valet job for a few years while in school, was a lot of fun.

The thing that most stood in my memory was when a man came to pick up bright yellow GTO, I ran down to get his car which only said pontiac.

Two cars were next to each other, a 2006? GTO, and a 90s rusty grand prix.
Assuming that the check in guy would have written GTO for such a car, I jumped in and pulled up the grand prix.

The way the place was run was in winter time your car would be running, heat on waiting for you when you came in from the airport, summer the A/C would be on.
Guy came out and flipped out that a rattletrap grand prix was sitting there that I had somehow started with his keys.

Turned out his son has an old sonoma, and his sons sonoma key was sufficient to start a random other older chevy product.
