Yep another blight ticket issued by the city, second one in 2 years.

I went through this last year and had everything dismissed because I met all city ordinances.

Well here comes the angry little neighbor troll complaining about the car. I explained that it met all city rules.    He said  "we'll see about that".

I have an appointment with the officer on the 3rd to show him what I have.

The car is fully licensed and insured. located on a concrete pad. Is fully functional (engine runs). Properly covered up. And above all it's a Corvette for crying out loud and not a pinto.

I expect the ticket to get dismissed again.  As for the troll.... No soup for him!

His mother must have ignored him when he was a child.

You don't think starting it a few weeks ago at 7:30 am had anything to do with it do you???


UPDATE... I win again. The car met all ordinances and the ticket was dismissed. Starting the car was rough with low temps but it ran. I did have to get a new battery, still under warranty so no charge.

Sunday morning is looking real good for an engine test start say about 7:00am right before pancakes and bacon??? I need to clear the pipes of mouse houses.

AND WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH A PINTO HMMM???

Everyone should have Corvettes dead and alive as lawn ornaments. I want to live in that world. This world is a "no troll" zone. Good luck!

Reading stuff like this makes me glad I have cool neighbors. I had a neighbor from hell years back. Always complaining to the cops whenever I was working on my cars. Funny thing was I know most of the cops in town and they understood what the deal was. It was a joyous day when the old bat passed away. 

One other quick story. 
A friend of mines friend had an old shed in his yard. The neighbor complained to the town about it not being sided. So the guy got a hold of vinyl siding scraps of various colors...Pink, light blue, mint green, etc. and sided the neighbors side with the multitude of colors. The neighbor complained again…the town said the shed was in compliance and there was nothing they could do. LOL

Had to wait a little before I replied.  Makes my blood boil when I hear about abuses by the city.  I understand they want the city to look good but if they want to control how my house looks, they can buy it, rent it out, and keep it looking how they want.

We even have an ordinance that you have to take down your Christmas decorations after two weeks!  I better shut up lest the NSA report my posting to the city Wacko

I'm new to this but I have a 1979 corvette that I am working on which I saved from the salvage yard. I feel for you because before I could get the car off the trailer and into my garage the police was knocking on the door. My nosey neighbor called.

Its a sad state we now live in. Not so much about the car thing but there is little sense of community. People would rather hide in their little rat holes and call the cops vs. walking over, handing you a beer and asking about your project...and then, maybe, asking if you might cover it or? Ya know what I mean? More flies with honey. I left CA for NV many reasons but one was the sense of community is strong here. We're still small town. I know my neighbors and have keys to a few of their homes. We pass a lot of beer over the fence.....sorry for your hassles.

Maybe we should consider a "CruiseIn" at Indy's place.  LOL That might add to the neighborhood excitement.
 I'm fortunate with my neighbors. The guy next door is forever asking if he can help me with the vette. A great guy whose grandfather actually raced in the Indy 500 and several cross country's back in the early days of race cars. Some of his pictures are really cool. One guy has a really nice Nova setup for the track, one owns a pretty hot mustang, and one has a 2006 vette. There are two other C3s, a C4, a C6, and a 1955 swb pickup being restored all within two blocks of my house.

Ya its similar here. 2 69 chargers, a 69 convert. firebird, 70 cuda, 71 GTX, 65 Mustang fastback, some ratrod truck, couple of 60's rally cars, handful of jacked up rock crawlers all within a block in 3 directions. Tons dirt toys and street bikes. Many of the local sheriffs are hot rodders or off road guys. I bought a model A frame from a local Sheriff last year. I would not last in a city situation. I feel for those living within a "homeowners association".

I'm lucky as my neighbor hood is not a stranger to Corvettes.  I have a '68 C3 and '98 C5; three houses up is a '67 C2 427 autoXer and '06 C6; two houses up from them is a new '14 C7 which replaced his '08 C6.  It's a older neighborhood, so I think most are on hearing aids so that's a plus.  While none of the vettes are in the drives or yards, there are motorhomes, trailors, and boats on the street from time to time.  So I think we have a live and let live attitude.
 
We have a Neighborhood Watch Block Party annually where everyone can rub elbows with their neighbor.  People walk and wave and take the time to say Hey! 
 
Kinda takes me back to how people accepted and tolerated each other when I was growing up.
