How did we ever do it? When I got this photo out to show it to you, I was surprised at how big it was! Yet I too must have parallel parked it.

I remember the very specific instructions I learned about parallel parking in Driver Ed class in high school. And I guess it is the same rule for any sized car. Drive up to the car you want to park behind. Slowly back straight up. When your front passenger door reaches the car's back tire, slow down more and cut your wheel hard clockwise. Continue backing into the space. Slowly straighten the wheel and when your front fender reaches the rear of the car, cut your wheel hard, counter-clockwise. If you did it right, your tires won't hit the curb and you can cut your wheel back to straighten it and pull forward. Piece of cake~!
