Looked like the parking lot surface was smooth as glass. Not much skill, and I would have laughed had he smacked up against one of the pillars.

No kidding. I've "drifted" on an icy highway and believe me that took no skill whatsoever.

stop drinking that haterade folks. Granted the conditions make it ALOT easier to do what he was doing, it still took a decent amount of skill to NOT plow into one of those pillars.

Wow, that is a pretty gutsy driver...uless its not "his" boxster. I agree it does take some skill in order not to smack up the car though.

I say if he can afford to fix it then good for him. Me, I'd be scared to death I'd hit one of those pillars. If I win the lottery then I'll try it.

Shoot, y'all, that's how I drive in all the parking lots downtown!

Seriously, I'm with gmboxster. I'll try it if I win the lotto. I am not the best at judging distances and am a really paranoid parker, so I can imagine that would turn into a disaster if I tried it.
