Just shows how serious some people take their right to a parking spot.

LOL. I like this guy. He should just have a personal driver always available but I also say let him have the sham parking space.

Even though he was just a millionaire, Thurston Howell and Lovey would have never done this!

Yeabut Mr. and Mrs. Howell also wouldn't be caught dead living in the West Village either.

In one episode when castaways were supposedly going to be rescued Ginger tells the Howells they can visit her in Hollywood. Mrs. Howell responds she would have to see if their passports were in order. Ginger responds that Hollywood is part of the country/USA and they don't need a passport. Mrs. Howell shoots back "not part of any USA we know....".

I've heard you can pay the city to plant a fire hydrant in front of you property.

My thoughts exactly. He's using his money and power to literally bully people who are doing nothing wrong.
