Did you explain why you were asking, or did I somehow miss that? Or do you not yet have sufficient responses before you give us your reasoning?

"That sounded stupid, didn't it?"—Kolzig, to the same reporter a few seconds later.

"Stall", referring to the specific physical space between the lines delineating it.

It is, of course, also a "parking space", but that is a broader term that could also apply to street parking, or just an area of a private driveway. (Mine usually has room for three parking spaces—but no stalls.)

A "parking spot" is basically the same, but would usually imply some amount of difficulty in finding one; i.e., "My parking spot is ten blocks away" (in midtown Manhattan, perhaps), or "I got a great spot right out front!"
