haha that looks awesome. I'd say just go to an empty parking lot and try to stop in a preselected parking space.

i can drift into a regular parking spot (in a suburban no less :)), but i can't imagine the difficulty of the move in that movie... your timing/spacing/steering have to be almost perfect to pull that off...

...In a driving school with a lot of practice.

I used to do that in this one spot that would always be open (as someone else with a similar schedule would jsut be leaving) in the lot at the right time when I had to show up for work...but I only had worry about the car in front of where I would drift into. If I went to far, I didn't hit a curb, I'd hit grass/snow.

It would be hard to get it that perfect, but in my case I could just do it and if I was to far away, which I usually was to be safe, just pull forward, and it still looked cool.

It's a good way to practice after you get the basic technique.

There are people who do it all the time (pro drivers). i saw a video one time of a Vintage Benz and a Vintage Austin Martin and the guy drited into the spot in a Porsche 911 i beleive.

so a $100,000 and two irreplaceable cars.
