Business Idea: Rent Out Cars in Long-Term Parking at Airports

FlightCar's business model would allow people who leave their cars at airport parking lots to rent them out for a few days:

Owners can post details of the airport they will be departing from, how long their car will be available, details of the vehicle and how much they want to charge for rental. Those flying into the airport at the same time can then avoid more expensive rental companies by borrowing a car that would otherwise have sat in the parking lot for the duration of the owner’s break. Once a transaction is agreed, the carkeys are handed to a FlightCar representative who cleans the vehicle before transferring them to the renter. FlightCar includes an approval process for both parties through driving licence checks and is insured against damage and theft.

Do you think it would work?

Nobody would want my van. The sliding rear doors don't slide, the driver's window won't roll down, the heater fan only works on two of the four settings, the DVD player is gone but the screen still lights up at night, and half the knobs for everything are missing.

On the up side, I never have to lock it.

Sounds like an insurance nightmare. I'd rather pay the parking fee than chance not having a car when I get home (inevitably) at 1:00 in the morning with an hour drive ahead of me.
