One needs to find the number under the car.

A picture of some parking spaces from the top down, appearing to be numbered "16, 06, 68, 88, ??, 98"

If you look at the numbers upside down, they read 86, __, 88, 89, 90, 91. The number that fits this pattern is, of course, 87.

Therefore, the space as the picture is currently viewed should be filled in with L8.

I am conflicted over whether to upvote this. It made me laugh. You have plenty of rep, so the positive comment will have to do. –  Ross Millikan Jun 27 '14 at 4:17
    
I was conflicted myself over whether it was better suited as a comment or an answer. The positive comment suffices. –  Joe Z. Jun 27 '14 at 4:36

L8 was my answer also! :) –  justhalf Jun 27 '14 at 10:27

Just one comment. Everything you said here is true. But you bolded L8 like it is the answer, meanwhile it is not, since the questions asks for a number of the parking slot, not "what is written there?". –  klm123 Jun 27 '14 at 11:16

You can probably tell that this answer was intended to be mostly facetious. –  Joe Z. Jun 27 '14 at 14:59

I believe the most obvious answer is:

There is a usual sequence of numbers, we're just looking at it in the wrong direction. The numbers of the parking spots must be viewed from the outside in, as a driver would see them, which is upside-down from the current view.

The shown numbers are: 86, ??, 88, 89, 90, 91. Therefore the answer is 87.

The Number is 87. Just rotate the image 180 degree. enter image description here
