We've solved the issue of random and sundry neighbors using our unused reserved parking space: we bought a car.

I was hoping for an M1A2 Abrams or a Merkava with a driver, but I spotted a 1984 Volvo 240 GL sedan on our way to run errands yesterday. Good condition, needs minor work (mostly cosmetic), seller was asking a reasonable price and accepted slightly less for cash upfront.

And of course, my new tank is blue.

The car has been named Thora. Vogon keeps snickering and saying "ZINE!" every time I address the car by name, but he'll get over it. His car doesn't even have a name. Pbbtht.

I have a Bentley manual on the way and with encouragement from the folks on brickboard.com, I am confident I can do most of the easier maintenance and repairs myself. There's a Volvo dealer 10 minutes away and two independent Volvo specialists 15 and 20 minutes away for the things I can't or don't want to do myself.
