    No problems with valet. Speaking from experience, it'll get stored in a nice safe spot and driven there with care.

    Worse case scenario, they're paying to get it fixed, and that is enough of a reason for them to care.

    Hell will freeze over first.

    A couple of times at restaurants I've had valet parkers tell me that I can't park the Viper myself. I explained to them nicely, "Sorry, but that's not going to happen." They were unwavering so I drove off, called the restaurant and told them to cancel my reservation because of their valet parking policy.

    Good first post. If they are that set in their ways, they deserve to loose business.

    I Agree 100% I just can't see putting my car in the hands of a 18-19 year old kid! JMO

    Valet park my Viper?

    "Only if they can pry my key fob from my cold, dead hands...."


    [But I have sold body parts and wheels to owners who felt otherwise]

    The first time I pulled mine into my garage I damn near hit the front into my toolbox. It's a very hard to judge and would be easy as hell to just go right into a curb. *I always back in now* but I could see it being super easy for one of those guys to just accidently hit a curb.

    HAHAHA, NO THANKS!!!! I park my truck in a garage that shares a floor w/ a nearby upscale restaurant's valet service and based on what I've seen in and near that garage, there is NOTHING anyone will ever say to convince me that my no-valet policy is wrong.

    It depends on the location/ restaurant. When I know it'll be up front sure, if they have to drive it to a remote lot, hell no. I also have to take my wife footwear into consideration.

    Exactly. The meal tastes just as good if I drive up in my beater while the Viper snoozes at home. And I can relax.
