How to Make Yourself a Parking Spot

Lifted from the comments section of Are the SF Progress Haters Targeting SmartCars?:
A few years ago I was waiting for the M4 at the stop on 32nd. A black Yukon with tinted windows and blasting subwoofers drove by, pulled up to a really tight parking spot (as usual in midtown on a weekday, there were no street parking spots available), but gave up and drove off.

A few minutes later it re-appeared, slowed down in front of the tight spot, but again left, only to show up once more after clearly having circled the block. This time it came to a full stop in front of the spot and three burly guys hopped out.

A SmartCar was the rear side of the open spot, so without seeming to exert much effort they picked it up, put it on the sidewalk, and their buddy parked. I've always wondered how many tickets that SmartCar had by the time the hapless driver returned.
