Reordering of Automotive Royalty

Anybody who knows Atlanta knows that the valet parkers at Lenox Square estimate a car's cachet rather well. Plebian carriages are relegated to the lot, while they reserve these premium covered, angled spots up near the pick-up/drop-off driveway for the cream of the crop. My pedestrian (bad word choice?) Audi A4 has no business in one of those spots. Porsches, Rolls Royces, and M5s and S-Class Mercedes get those spots.

So imagine my shock yesterday when I saw a lowly Ford Fusion in one of those prized berths. And next to it...a freaking Buick? Yep. Apocalypse Now.
