Mines stripped bare, no wheels (on jackstands), and engine/trans sitting on the ground underneath it.

It'* also covered.

I have trigger-happy neighbors that love to report things like this. I am hoping Wednesday the car will be gone for good...but I still hate sleeping with one eye open, if you catch my drift.

Wow all that for a vehicle that is inspected and registered! I had a problem with my neighbors a year ago. These are all row homes and in the back of three houses were about a dozen "auction" cars. None had plates or valid inspections and most were obviously not road worthy. Tow trucks would come and go at all hours and as fast as they were taken another one or two. I complained to my borough numerous times and they finally took action. They denied that they were selling these cars, even though they had "shoppers". They were shipping them to Africa to their relatives.

I don't mind if someone has a car sitting with tags and inspections, just shows to me that they are working on it,probably cash is tight. Good luck!

but its his own property.. he should have every right to keep his car there if he pays his property tax.. and i would not mind it if it were in my area...

i would only mind it if every single house in my neighborhood had a half assembled car on their driveway... just one or 2 is fine to me...

you own the house and property and pay tax you should be able to do what ever you want on your property as long as its not a danger to those around you...

just my thoughts... put a car cover on it.... im positve they cant say nothing about it then....
That mentality of "one man is is his own island" is counter-productive and takes away from the fact that we live in urban and suburban centres. The idea that "just because I pay taxes" gives you or anyone the right to do what they want, or present themselves in a manner that could be deemed offensive is silly.

We pay taxes for the purposes of social infrastructure and other necessary municipal or (in your case) statewide services. Having a property with half assembled cars strewn on the driveway our lawn, and the idea that "I pay my taxes" doesn't cut my mustard.

Personally, I'd have a problem if my neighbor had a disassembled car sitting for months in his driveway while I do my best to maintain my home and property, but he'* allowed to do it "because he pays his taxes". That kinda thing devalues the neighbourhood, much like multiple families living in a a single family dwelling.

But whatever, put a cover on it....

The very reason I live outside of the City on County Property... Most all of us have 1 Acre or better... And the Neighbors don't really care... 3 out of the 4 of us have some project happening...LOL

Inside the city this is a completely different story..

Radomir... All I can say is pull the car in the garage and shut the door..

My old 94 SSEi is up in the air with the right rear tire off and cardboard and rags underneath it in our driveway but we live back on a flag lot so no pesky neighbors to worry about!

I would just cover it up so they can't complain and tell them that you are fixing the problems as fast as possible.

Good luck with it!

Lots of good info here. Because of the way my car "stands" (pardon the pun), I agree with Jim W. I'm in the suburbs. My neighbors very rarely have anything worked on. There are two houses I can think of that are filled with "stuff" that makes noise or leaks oil, and they're a whole lot worse off than I am. I talked with some of them, and they've just been shoving things in their garages. My house is going through some construction after a couple toilets literally exploded (), so the garage is filled with tiles, some equipment, construction materials, and so on.

Should I really black out my info? Swing by some time and help me with my car(*)! :

If they came to tow my baby when it was down in the driveway they would have a few bullet holes in their towtruck believe that.
