Do the fruits have spikes on them too?.
No, the fruit skin is very smooth. Like an eggshell.

Looks to me from the fruit pix I can see (most I can't) like either cucurbita foetidissima or the aforementioned cucurbita texana

I can see the pictures in post #12 now. It looks to me like it might be lemon cucumber. Cucumis sativus. Or something related.

+1 for this - a rather overripe lemon cucumber. I had a jar of lemon cucumber pickles last year - not the best pickles I've ever had.

Yes, but people said they can't see those pictures, so I uploaded them to Google+ and reposted.

Lemon cucumber - really the closest guess, but why there? The parking lot has no ornamentals or anything purposely planted

Oh, I just saw this link:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/907133/
this perhaps explain the (wild) location...

Geez... more pictures, and more names.....
http://davesgarden.com/community/for...hp?pid=5603163

I stick with the lemon cucumber!

Thank you all!!!!!!!!!

Birds spread seeds. They eat the fruit and seeds in one location then fly away and poop out the seeds somewhere else, where the seeds germinate and grow. So you can end up getting all manner of plants being spread around the country that way by birds and found in the strangest locations.

There is another very similar looking fruit, it is a small yellow melon called Sweet Korean Melon, but the seeds are arranged a little differently on strings in a sort of compartment and don't have so much juice around them as the fruit you found. But you could look that melon up for comparison too.
