I started to part these two ex-mercedes(no longer drivable) out.... but now is the time to give them away and get them off my property.....Why? County spotted them after a year of sitting in my driveway with a car cover.......300SD almost everything is still under the hood but interior electronics have been taken out/sold. Same with the 380SE......

My e-mail: [email protected]

the 300sd will be towed on tuesday to a junk-yard so fines of $250 a day wont begin.

I had the same thing happen in feb 2005. got a letter saying only allowed 2 untagged cars on the property or I get fined $100 a day. I think I had 15 cars at the time, but 4 untagged ones were my roommates and 6 were mine/customers. By the time I recieved the letter, the roommate was gone with his cars but mine were still there, so two went in the garage, two outside and two more moved up to the woods on my neighbors property :D

I've gone over the limit a few more times since then but no more problems from the county. All my stuff is only visible from in my yard, I just a nosy neighbor with nothing better to do at the time.

Yea right now the county hates me ....because I have a lawer fighting a hedge issue where our hedge is exceeding from the house. The county could fine me up to 250 a day for it but, they know the way the law is written(shitty law makers) we do not fall directly under it. So to get back at me....they micro manage me. The county commissioner also lives 4 houses down and we(my attorney's) have threatened him and the county with lawsuits. Its a competition out here. We have old people spraying round-up at 3am because we have the best lawn...... So I then bought an infrared camera system. Its war!!!!!!!!!

Jeez...

Sorry to hear of your car troubles guys. Don't you just hate it when people have nothing better to do and try to make trouble? I used to have an 82 Lincoln Mark VI that sat in my apt's driveway not bothering a soul. I had just gotten my 85 500SEL and had put some money into her, so I didn't have enough cash to fix up my Linc and get her tagged. Sure enough, the apt. manager started bitching at me over the Linc, even though I had lived at that apt. longer than most and my Linc wasn't causing any probs for anybody. And then while I was asleep she had it towed..damn I still miss that car to this day (Old Linc drivers know what I mean, these cars are sweet as cherry when kept up, but the upkeep gets expensive though..). I sure hope Karma works, cause these people need to pay for this kind of crap...
