    Louie is gonna be PISSED!!! [​IMG]

    Some busy-body fucking bent over old bitch representing the City Of Dearborn just stuck a notice on my door saying that my old Chevy has to be moved, or it'll be a $500 fine!

    This fucked up, crime-ridden Hell-hole, a miserable EXCUSE for a City pulls shit like this to justify hiking taxes every year. The Mayor is a crooked shitwad that makes Boss Hogg look like Mother Theresa, and his little cronies flock to kiss his worthless ass!

    Now, I'm a pretty easy-going fella...fairly laid back and downright silly most of the time...but my room-mate is a mean sonofabitch, and he AIN'T gonna like this one bit! His full name is Louisville Slugger, but I just call him "Louie" for short.

    The backyard has some snow on it now, and the ground is a little uneven. Someone comes poking around back there, they're likely to fall down and get hurt...BAD! Louie might TRY to help them back up...but he's kinda clumsy...could end up hurting them WORSE!

    People just never know when to keep their noses out of the other guy's business. That's how bad things happen...some fuckhead kicks a sleeping dog, and cries when he gets mauled.

    Shoulda stayed up north...people there mind their own affairs and don't go walking their uppity yuppie asses around LOOKING for trouble! Fuck this City, Fuck Mayor Guido, Fuck 'em ALL!

    Sorry about the rant, but when people fuck with your car, and your way of life, that's grounds for a fight!

    Usually don't have any trouble on the dead end street I live on until the snow falls. Then you get the threats from the city about $500.00 fines for cars on the street even tho they haven't plowed my street in years. [​IMG]

    Yeah, we've been round and round this forum on the irritations of Zoning Nazi's and busy bodies. I feel for ya man.
    It kinda boils down to, What can you do to become compliant with local ordinances?
    Registration is the first step but there's also needs like tarps or car covers, carport, privacy fence, etc...
    Whatta ya gotta do to store a future classic driver until returning the vehicle to servicable condition,
    or weather makes operation feasible?
    It's a load a shit that a true car-guy gets mixed into the 'problem' side of the equation.
    But at the same time you gotta consider that these same poeple are trying to make the community better, without discriminating,
    to weed out the things like a late 80's POS sittin in some back yard providing shelter to small furry mammals that also invade neighboring properties.
    You see the difference, I see the difference, they see the bigger picture,
    without discriminating against someone
    for there choice of era or intent of having it there.
    Hope that helps settle ya, there's ways to get around them folks. Butcha gotta figure out how best to bend Their Rules!

    I think it's funny how the notion of "Private Property" is such a farce in urban areas!

    They want a problem neighbor, I can step up to the plate and make 'em miserable...don't want to HAVE to, but if pushed, I push BACK!

    I'll be the Mayor's new Best Friend! Stop by to see him all the time, with a list of complaints that I'VE spotted around town. Call him up fifteen times a day to ask what's being done about it. Circualte flyers to let the Good People know what kind of a fuckhead is running the show. Tacky, out of season decorations will become my new obsession. No more quiet loathing...the time to become a Certified Pain In The Ass has come!!!

  7. Hack,
    Sorry to hear about your problems with the code nazis.
    About every 2 years someone turns me in for somethin to do with my cars.
    This year I told the lady (I use the term loosly) on the other end of the phone that there were 3 dope houses on my street alone and they were busy counting cars in my drive.
    She changed the subject to keeping my lawn mowed. Didn't bother me I mow at least once a week in the summer. I said OK. I did mow early when the crackheads were trying to sleep.
    They busted one of the houses and the other people moved away.
    Red Herring bro always works for me. [​IMG]
     
  8. Is the car in the yard? Or still in the street. I know here where I live you can't even park over night in the street at all. You may have to go get the car regestered jut to leave it in the drive.

    Don't worry. You're in good company.

    Atlanta? They can't get the crooked government and entrenched and exempt Delta to let them lease their airport to cover the $3.5 Billion they need to update their sewers.

    Houston: When voted on, the public enthusastically told METRO they wanted nothing to do with light rail in this city. METRO figgured out a way to do it without a vote (or taxpayer money) then proceded to require taxpayer funds for three years to fund the first leg. Construction almost made a ghost town of the newly developed and pedestrian friendly downtown area. Now METRO is asking for huge awards to build other rail legs that are not useful or wanted.

    Agoura Hills, California: Has made it so difficult to operate an auto mechanics shop that even the dealer sends his repairs to a neighboring town. Land prices, chemical constraints, waste disposal, and no local depot for replacement parts has run off most of the garages - even the large ones. Local residents have to drive to a neighboring town, or pay fairly high local prices to have repairs done.

    Want to live with other humans? The higher the density - the lower the relative intelligence. Just ask security - they don't fear a person - they fear a crowd!

    Hack...here's the fix.....call your insurance company and tell them to transfer the insurance on your daily driver over to your chevy. Mail you an insurance certificate. On transfers of coverage, you don't have to show them the car. My insurance (state farm) gives me 30 days free ride to decide which car I'm gonna use. Take the insurance cert to the sec of state and get some "antique plates" ...25 bucks and good forever.

    Wait a week and transfer the insurance back to the daily driver....Once the chev is licensed, they can't do a thing about it.

    When storing a car in my driveway, I never leave it uncovered. I cover it real tight, so you actually have to untie the tarp to see if it is licensed....if the nazi's do that to check my plates, it's an illegal search. First, they would have to prove it's a car and not some lump of grass clippings or a large snowblower, much less if it is licensed.

    My neighbor was getting hassled about his cube van and I told him the same thing...he went to the sec of state and they questioned him "why do you want antiqueplates for a cube van?"...he told them he uses it in parades as an antique fire rescue vehicle....no problem!!!!...dumb ass counter help [​IMG]

    It's always best to screw them with their own rules...hatch(the rule twister!!!)

    Stay and fight, it always blows over. Soviet Socialist Republik of Burbankygraad was on my ass about my caddy and VW bus a coupla months back. Bus would get its tires chalked EVERY day, regardless where it was parked, and despite the OFFICIAL city of burbank residential parking permit hanging off the rear view. got a notice on it saying it hadda move every 72 hours...

    I was out there with the can of cheapass black primer painting over the shit every day. Finally got sick of it, called the cops and demanded to speak to whatever fuckwit was in charge of parking enforcement...

    1) someone complained for this to happen, but they wouldn't tell me who.

    I think thats BULLSHIT, If some dipshit is gonna subject me to the hassle, expense, and otherwise bullshit of having my rolling asset impounded, or fear thereof, I should be able to "inconvenience" their life to the same extent. More on this ina second... I COULDA and almost did find out...

    2) Alls I hadda do was prove it was able to cross an intersection. Fine, so I gotta park it on the "more ghetto" block where it can get broken into? Fortuneately it didn't and a couple days of this, they left me alone.


    Actually, what ended it was the word "subpeona." (sp?) With a bit of joe-6pack legal wrangling, I coulda gotten the PD to tell me who the complainant was. Maybe I woulda needed to get a schmuck lawywer, maybe not, I got a couple who owe me favors. Even metermaids don't like going to court...

    Beurocrats only think they're safe when you seem stupid to them... you start talking tough and pissed in THEIR language, their tru yellow shows thru and they back down...

    So, just tell your parking enforcement people to leave you the fuck alone, otherwise you'll subpeona the complainant information out of them, and bring formal complaints against both (or SUE, if you gots duckets) for HARASSMENT!

    Yeah, the MAN may try and keep you down, but a kick to his nuts hurts as bad as it would to the rest of us...

    Hack,
    Plate and insure it, then drop the insurance after you get your paper "proof" in the mail. At least you'll get proof of insurance in the mail from your insurance co to prove it's insured. I don't think they (the city) have a way of checking that it actually isnt (as far as the inspectors go).

    After that, spray it flack black and stencil a skull and crossbones on the hood or trunk in white. That should tell the neighbors you mean business.

    Why can't you just park it in front of your garage? Leave the daily stuff in the street?

    My project car had been sitting next to our garage for almost exactly 2 years, with me working on it pretty much only in the summer, then covering it up in the winter. Then last month, out of the blue, we get a nasty letter from a CITY INSPECTOR about how it's illegal to have an unlicensed car parked on your own property, and all this other bullshit. The license plate on that car expired in 1971 for godsake and everything from the firewall forward was off and in the process of being restored inside. How the hell am I supposed to license a car that doesn't even have a gas pedal?

    Of course it included a declaration that we either move it within 2 weeks or we'll be subject to monstrous fines. It was obvious that one of our neighbors had decided to file a complaint when if they'd just ASKED I would've done something about it.

    Well, what do we notice the very next day, but a guy in our neighbor's yard surveying their property. The next day we saw them leaving while reading a big Parade of Homes newsletter. The old jackasses were thinking about selling their house and didn't want that UGLY OLD CAR sitting there bringing down their property values.

    Now, we've always been friendly to them even though we have never liked them. The old man used to be a woodworker as a full-time job, and has about the equivalent of a three-car garage full of woodworking machinery. They also sit on their back porch burning garbage and listening to really awful country music as long as it isn't snowing or raining out. And virtually every morning we're woken up at 7AM to the sound of table saws and drill presses (when my mom bought this house she was concerned about the noise that might come from a professional woodworker having his shop 100 feet from her bedroom window, but he assured her he was retired and hardly ever worked out there...that was until they bought a giant RV the next year and started working again to pay for it).

    Nothing pisses me off more than passive-agressivists. One of the biggest problems with this country is that everyone is of the mind that all problems should be solved with lawsuits and other legal action. Ugh.

    Hack, check with the DMV. We have what they call black tags here. Means you are tagged but under construction. No insurance required.

    "The old jackasses were thinking about selling their house and didn't want that UGLY OLD CAR sitting there bringing down their property values."

    Get the car out of the bastards' sight, Then when they're having their open house throw a good, big party-- with "Mexican independence day" or "Black Panther Legal defense Fund Event"banners and directional signs for same at every nearby intersection. Be sure all of your friends park in the street with their hoods up, and spend lots of time leaning over the fenders with beers. Be sure to have plenty of music matching your party thene, and ask all visitors to the open house to contribute to the cause and come to your regular parties.

    What the fuck! You can't even wash your car on the grass. We are encouraged to wash our cars on the grass here so we don't waste water (wash car and water the grass at the same time) Yep land of the free??????

    Hack-- do you own the house? If so, there's only one word-- FENCE!! I've got a 6' board on board fence (no gaps) and have had "junk" cars in the back yard since we moved in 7 years ago. We live only about 20 blocks from downtown, and right now I have my 54 plymouth, 80something olds donor car, a vw bus I drug out of the woods, and an old yamaha, all unregistered. I'm carefull about noise, and someone would have to climb a step ladder to check, and I always have something blocking the tag area, so they'd have to climb the fence to check. I've had no probs EVER.
     
  24. Do you rent the house or own it? The reason somebody complained is they don't want the precious property values damaged. Who ever is selling their house is your target.

    Do you have a local Pennysaver newspaper?
    I'm thinking they need to have a garage sale next Sunday morning, come early for the best deals. 5AM - 12 PM.
    Change of address cards, they might begin to wonder were ALL of their mail went after 2 weeks of not getting any. Make up an address in a CA zip code.
    Wait about 2 weeks, then fill out as many magazine subscription cards as you can with their name and the "bill me later" box checked.
    Devils night will be FUUUUUUUUUN next year!
    Next time it snows at night, take a bucket of water and pour it down their driveway.
    Ruin all Christmas parties in the neighborhood for the next 2 weeks with super glued door locks and a parking in the street complaint.
    Make up a nice "Beware, Child Molester" sign and make a nice name for you community action group like "Citizens Against Child Molesters", stick it in the yard one night.
    Use a permanent marker and write out the Constitution and the Bill of Rights all over the Chevy, call it lawn art. [​IMG] then get the ACLU and the news TV crews involved. Tell them you are fixing it up for your mother as a Christmas present, they love that shit.

    The complaint read "Remove car from the grass in the yard"



    Maybe I should set a patio block under each wheel? That way, it's not TECHNICALLY "on the grass"!!!

    [/ QUOTE ]

    Hack,
    Got a friend across the river (different county) they got an improved surface law. That is exactly what he does with his racecar. He leaves it on the grass until they give him a notice, then puts it up on patio blocks. They get satisfied everytime.
    Still think your best bet is try and draw thier attention to the other worse offenders in the neighborhood.

    Or you could move in with us, don't have much room in the garage... [​IMG]

    You guys are way off base. I'd kill them with kindness, such as offering them FREE oil changes on all their cars & RVs. Just dont forget that amazing additive of 2 jumbo grade A eggs in the crankcase.

    Somebody told me ( a guy I know that gets in trouble with the county every 5 years or so, for having 82 cars in his back yard )that any kind of car in any kind of condition is OK, as long as it is on a licenced Trailer.
    You could build a makeshift Trailer cheap, if you dont plan to use it for actual car hauling.
