It actually turns out that I'm being "sued" for holding a wrecked car in front of my house. The good news is that the Bonneville will be up and running again very, very soon!

These posts about shooting code enforcement officers and whining about your community actually having some pride and standards that some of you would rather thumb your nose at is just inane. You do kind of choose where you live, they don't put a gun to your head and say "you must live here where we don't allow junk cars in the yards, and you may not live anywhere else." I feel bad for you guys, living in a community that cares about how the place looks, with you guys thinking it'* your god-given right to create an eyesore and bring down everyone else'* property values just because you don't give a damn.

This isn't aimed at you, Radomir, you seem to actually have the decency to take care of the matter. But you other guys are the kind of people I'd report to my neighborhood improvement and public works department. I think you might be missing the big picture because we're talking about our Bonnevilles, which we adore and love. But consider for a moment if it were something else, like your neighbor, with say, shopping carts littering his yard and rusting away in different states of decomposition. Maybe you wouldn't care about that either, but the fact is that when you live in a community with other people, some of us don't want to have a junkyard next door, and believe it or not, a junk car (an actual, junk car, not what Radomir has, which sounds to me like a work in progress) can actually pose a danger and a hazard. Maybe not to you, but it might be to your kid.

I hope some of you do take a shot at your local authorities some time, so the rest of us won't have to live next to you while you spend the next 10 to 20 in prison. Seriously guys, just think for one moment how utterly ridiculous your reasoning is. There'* reasons why there are laws against people having a meth lab in their house. You might not understand that until the day your next door neighbor'* house blows up and burns down your house and kills your family.

Yes, it'* a free country (sort of), which give us the right to form community standards so that we can have an expectation of a pleasant, safe environment to live in and raise our families. I can think of some things that I'm sure you wouldn't want to live next to, or have in your neighborhood. If you seriously have no sense of decency and still want to have a junk yard, do yourself and the rest of us a favor and go move someplace where that'* okay. People who move into a community that has laws, standards, and zoning codes, and then whine about them are just inane. If you don't like the local laws, go live somewhere else!

Wowzers. Well said overall.

If I were the inspector and came to my house to see a car without the bumper, with the fenders hanging off, and with the hood sitting above the fenders, I'd probably take a further look. There is nothing but carpeting inside my car, and it'* pretty soaked. It'* going to be a long day tomorrow while I pull up carpeting and run wires. Fun, fun, fun!

I'll finish my car and then ***** out the newly painted awesomeness.
