Watch as a Hialeah, Fla., man wraps his 1987 Datsun 300ZX in plastic sheeting to protect it from Hurricane Irma, while asking his wife to help out by grabbing some tape. "Sure, sure. I'll get you some tape," his wife responds. "For the car in my living room. Not a problem."
Spoiler alert: He dismantled the sliding glass door to get the car into the living room so it could be safe and sound with the rest of the family.

So, it turns out more than one dealership came up with the bright idea of filling public parking decks with unsold cars. Residents in West Palm Beach, Fla., found the parking decks at CityPlace were filled with 400 cars from Napleton Hyundai, the Palm Beach Post reported. Lynn Tidwell, general sales manager for the dealership, told the newspaper the dealership made arrangements with CityPlace's parking managers for the spots on Tuesday, before the hurricane hit. The city decided to open the spots up to the public for free on Friday.
And in Hollywood, Fla., residents were perplexed when a public parking deck was already jammed with unsold, unmarked cars when the residents arrived to shelter their vehicles, according to the Sun-Sentinel. The unnamed dealership took up about 40 parking spots, and ended up with $30 tickets on each car.
And it will be difficult for the dealer to get its cars out. "Other drivers have since double- and triple-parked in the garage and have blocked in all of the dealership's cars," the Sun-Sentinel reported.
