Parking on an incline

I have recently relocated to an area where I have to park '91 20V Coupe on a
steep 35-40 degree incline. There is some valve clatter when I start the car
up that persists longer than usual.

Therefore, I was wondering, for those that know the anatomy of the engine, oil
pan/pump, etc, as to whether if it is better to park the car with nose down or
nose up to provide the best lubrication on start up.

Or does it matter at all?
