Had no choice but to valet park my 2005 Mazda RX-8 at a fancy hotel. I warned the Valet that if the engine got cold, he’d have to warm it up again before shutting it off lest it flood. Sure enough, got a call hours later (while sleeping) that they were trying to shuffle my car around for space, but it wouldn’t start. Having warned them, I was mad, and told them tough luck...I’d come down and de-flood it in the morning.

To their credit, one of the cooks at the hotel happened to be a rotary enthusiast, and de-flooded it sometime during the night shift, so the car was ready to go and running smoothly when I checked out the next morning.

Was the last time I’ll ever Valet a rotary.
