We’ve got 2 daily’s, 2 vans and a 4x4 GMC and we feel like we have the least amount of old steel on our block. Crazy people are giving you that much crap about it.

Sounds like you need a few more vans.. Or a really tall fence.

F**k them! Find out what neighbor complained and make their life living hell. It is nobody's business what you do on your own property. I lived in a neighborhood for a few years and they were always complaining about cars being parked in the yard and noise complaints. The best decision I ever made was to move out into the country. We have neighbors, but they are further away and not uptight at all. I do standing burnouts in my driveway on the regular and have had no less the 2 inop vehicles parked outside since I bought the place and nobody cares.

Edit: not sure about where you live, but in the city limits around here, as long as the cars move every now and then and are on your property, they can't do anything about it. I've known several folks who pump up the tires, and re-arrange their shitboxes on the driveway every weekend. Back them in the driveway so that the out of date (or lack of) plates isn't visible. They would have to trespass to be able to check.

Another great day in Vannerland!
Thanks Jason! I'll bet you could R&R this '94 B350 360 WP, like by lunchtime. No worries! I am so on this thing Bro. Like a raging Herd of Bloodthirsty Turtles...
Maybe another Chevy to even things up! Good thing it's not in frscke1's driveway, although that would be a Blast. If you drop anything, it's rolling into the street.

frscke1 did find me a Rad Ugly Big Blue Stepvan that would easily take up the rest of the front yard.

When the Oversize Vehicle ordinance was passed, it was aimed at commercial trucks in residential neighborhoods. Semis, semi trailers. All trailers. Big service trucks, MH's, etc.
This all stems mostly for the crappy F150. I believe whoever complained, didn't know Issac's F150 wasn't mine. When CE showed up, they tagged what they could tag, according to the city code. Sounds like someone doesn't like the Vans, but IDK if that will be an issue. I have complied with the 2 statutes they listed, provided current registration as per request, as per statute. (30 day temp, on Campervan.)

I had parked my utility trailer on the street, so technically... shocked So. In the yard, everything is legally parked. They may, or may not say anything about the Big Block EXT? My neighbors shiny new $50,000+ F250 4XDcab fleetside Oilfield service truck parked right in front of it has a similar wheelbase, the Cab is just as tall. Similar if not heavier GVWR.

The EXT is 12 passenger, not 15. So not a PE CDL Bus. (Pay no attention to that digit in the VIN, lol) The listed unladen weight on the Reg is 6100lbs. 9100 GVWR. I've parked it in the yard before, but you have to grow grass, or else you get weeds. Well. You get weeds anyway, but I digress...

My apparently highly unsightly, visibly offensive, and allegedly annoying Fleet consists of; In front parked at the curb, a 2014 Ram 1500 Shorty, and a 1990 G30 EXT, one on each side of the driveway.
In the driveway left to right; 1987 19ft Searay Seville 4.3 OMC CB, A tow dolly behind the boat, 1988 B250, 1994 B350 Xplorer, 4x8 utility trailer.

Geez, It's only 3 Big Vans, a pickup, a boat and 2 small trailers... grin

We'll see. Like I said I am highly amused. IDK if they can really do anything. I relish the interactions with the City. They are all really nice. The Legend, remains consistent. Priceless when he pulled up here though. He is a good Inspector.

He reminds me of one of my 2 Union "Bosses." Leonard, "You do it out of Love," and Carl, "You do it out of Fear." You guessed correctly. Carl made a homeowner Lady cry once, and we chewed on his ass, mercilessly!
Annual company ocean fishing trips were EPIC...

Wait until I jack up and RIP and Tear into the highly visible Cabin Cruiser, in order to R&R that wonderfully designed Mopar water pump. Talk about all A**holes and Elbows. Better stock up on Pizza and Beer, make a few calls, All Hands on Deck! They're gonna love that!

I will strive for the Fleet to always remain a part of Vanning history. Loved by all.
Well...

As a side note, Burnouts!! Every car show in the park here they park a fire truck over by a designated concrete burnout box poured on the road in front of the Park. Carnage ensues. Hilarious every time.

Quality Parts. Line it up. Safety First. Good Wrenching!

Wedgy, I'm not sure that the same policies would apply in your area as where I live in SE Michigan, but we had a nuisance blight officer harass us once when my son was working on his racing Cutlass Supreme.

Now, I'm in the last house at the very edge of the township limits, the car was about 100 feet back from the road, and we have a privacy fence... someone had a real hard on over that car!

My son spoke with a State Trooper he knows, who told him to buy a cheap car cover and put it on the immobile vehicle. As long as it's covered, it doesn't even need to be registered/plated! -Bingo!

And he said if the blight officer ever dared to walk up onto our property, to press charges against him for trespassing.

-Yes sir! ;)

It's what you learn after you know it all, that counts...

Are you living to work, or working to live?

Well, Gentlemen, thanks for the replies,

Issac yanked up the truck into his driveway, sold it about a month later.

Catifish, Nice... love yer show!

Reed,

I love my Country, I love The Republic of Texas. Mean people are the problem. I just didn't know about the nicer neighborhood class distinctions/look down nosey people, when I bought the little "Brick house in Town,' Nothin fancy, I assure you.
I can only imagine the code 3 carnage, had I bought over in the Country Club... shocked

I came here to see Mom in 2014, on Vacation, never went back. California Sucks. My Family has owned and farmed land here in Hockley County for going on over 100 years, since the early 1900's. Dry Farm. Where Colonel Scott, U.S. Army, in 1830 said, "This area is so desolate, No-one will ever live here..." Wrong.

I ended up in Cali due to Dad entering the Marines right after Pearl Harbor. 2 wars, long story. I moved back here when I realized Mom wasn't going to be here for very much longer. So. Good Call. We enjoyed that 18 months.

A**holes are everywhere, you just have to deal with them appropriately.
I do have room in the yard for a couple of Rectrans Discoverers...

That outta co the Trick!

A new ordinance was passed in Sacramento about 7 months ago that makes it illegal to work on your own vehicle on your own property within city limits if it requires the vehicles to be out of operation for more than 24 hours. Absolutely insane.
