Money talks and bulls--t walks.....Big tip.... leave it up front and take the keys.....everyone is happy:D

I never valet park my cars, any of them, if there is any way to avoid it. If I absolutely must valet park I take a beater. I just don't like anyone driving my cars. Call it a personal quirk if you will, but that is the way I am. I own and have restored several cars, including a couple of "classic" Corvettes, and therefore worry excessively about "originality," including things like factory paint jobs and like to keep all my cars as factory original as possible.

valet

I ask to park up front in 'valet' spot myself.. and give valet $10 to watch it, keep keys. At the dealer, wrote the mileage on the service slip in front of the writer/manager, told him no one but he or Viper Tech drives.

No way - mostly b/c of their tight parking habits and relative lack of concern about door dings vs. hot rodding, although that is a possibility too.

i usually even pay for two stalls when i self park downtown and tip the guy to keep an eye on her for me.

I don't have my Z yet (next week) but whenever I take one of my Vipers out for dinner ( I didn't mean buying dinner for my Viper!!) the valets always let me park it in an open space right in front. They just assume I don't want them to park it and are cool about it. I usually pay them a decent tip just to keep an eye on it for me. I expect the Z will be similar. If they ever insisted on parking it for me I would leave,but this hasn't happened yet.

I know what it is but never been anyplace that offers it. I'm just a hick from in the sticks.

Re: Do you ever valet your Z?

I have fun meeting all the people. I hate when I don't make any money. I hate working just off tips on slow nights. I like getting $20 tips and driving nice cars. And when women who are wearing skirts get out of SUV's and forget to keep there legs closed. :-)

I think we found a valet who likes upskirts! Which begs to question, should we tell our wives to flash the valet and consider that his tip? Maybe ask him for a dollar for the free peep show.

Nope, no way, never...and it has nothing to do with money, etc. I take care of my 'vettes in a particular way...no one drives my Z06/Z07 but me, no one.

Re: Do you ever valet your Z?

Me and my son are the only people driving my Z. I would never take it somewhere that would require a valet. I would never let someone get behind the wheel of a 500+ hp car with out knowing them very very well. And i would need to be holding something he really valued. Besides I have other cars for a night out like that. Like my wife's car for one. Hehehe
