Jeep Owner Gets Last Laugh on Corvette Driver's Greedy Parking Job




Nice parking job, pal.

A New Jersey man got the last laugh on a Corvette driver who greedily took up two parking spots outside a Red Robin restaurant.

Instead of parking in the back of the crowded parking lot, Kyle DeMattia, 20, pulled his mud-covered Jeep partially onto the sidewalk, with the other part of his vehicle sharing a space with the sports car.

"The parking lot was packed except for a few spaces at the back and I could see people parking and walking by it in just plain annoyance," DeMattia told NJ Advance Media.

DeMattia scored a spot by the window and videotaped the Corvette driver's reaction, which has since garnered more than 1 million views on YouTube.

DeMattia had been on an offroading trip and said he had been stuck in traffic for two hours before arriving at the restaurant. There, he found a brand-new Corvette stretched like a lounge singer on a piano across two parking spaces right by the door.

"The parking lot was packed except for a few spaces at the back and I could see people parking and walking by it in just plain annoyance," DeMattia said.

By most people's math, two parking spaces should fit two cars. So DeMattia pulled his mud-covered Jeep in next to the Corvette, perfectly parallel, albeit on the sidewalk, and had his meal.

"I just did enough to make him think some [expletive] kid in a Jeep came and messed with his mid-life crisis mobile," DeMattia said.

DeMattia happened to get a window seat from which he could see Corvette driver's reaction. He took a video. The driver was not thrilled, not even by the "Zombie Outbreak Response Team" stickers on DeMattia's Jeep.

Jeff note: there is a youtube video but had a bad word in it, so sorry, no can post.
