I'm driving to Vegas...first visit to Los Vegas. I want to drive my R/T, but I'm a bit cautious about parking. A simple door ding would ruin my trip...yup, one of those guys.
Not sure what hotel the Mrs. has planned yet, but I'm am curious about safety and respectful parking.

Is there better places to be more than not? Are there private, professional parking places? Or should we take her car...

Take her car if you are ocd with the Challenger. The only place I would park is on the top level with my car cover on in an area that is protected as much as possible from the wind. No one wants to park uncovered in lv so the roof area is usually clear. Good luck...

whats the difference between a door ding in vegas as opposed to the grocery store? If you got the car, dont be afraid to drive it.

Perform a thorough detailing of your RT and park it in your garage. Then call Enterprise and rent a Chevy Cruz that gets nearly 40 mpg highway. Eat Taco bell and chili dogs the entire trip and put on what I would imagine will be a thousand miles or so. Return the Chevy Cruz to Enterprise and go home and hug your Challenger. Then take it for a relaxing drive. Challenger safe. Door ding problem solved.

Im one of those guys too (try dealing with a NYC parking garage!) but I wouldn't let it stop me from taking my car on a road trip. Im assuming thats half the reason you got it.

Take the standard precautions and use your judgment about where to park. Im sure itll be fine.

If you spend your time in Vegas worrying about your car, you will never relax and enjoy yourself. Get cheap airline tickets, rent a car and have a wonderful vacation! (by the way, I travel a lot, and my experience with valet around the country has been brutal!)

Come on, drive that baby down! When you valet it, pull the guy aside and let him know what you expect: zero dings, park it in a safe spot, slip him a $20. Tell him there will be another tip when you leave, providing it is ding free. It worked for me when I drove down to Hot August Nights in Reno!

Your car was made to be driven, so have fun, enjoy that great car as you blast down I-5, be sure to beep as you pass thru PDX, I'll be looking for you!

P.S. You should attend this event next weekend, 145 cars going so far: http://www.challengertalk.com/forums/f59/9th-annual-mt-st-helens-cruise-mopars-mountain-will-august-8th-2015-a-315706/

Thank you all for the input. I do love to drive my car, it's my weekend warrior...

RWL11, I've done the St. Helens run before a couple years ago. Two other guys and myself broke free of the pack and torn the mountain up! It was a blast. We were slightly chastised on the forum later that week. Unfortunately I do not have the patience to stop and chat for an hour at every poker stop... I will be looking for the post of the event pics though...
