Ok,

so I looked at my driveway this morning and for the first time I was horrified. 4 stripped bikes, a 1967 Pontiac Shell on blocks and my rotting GTO which lost its garage space and never got it back. There is also a sink and a radiator out there that I was supposed to move to the basement 2 days ago and I have just been lazy about it (actually it is heavy and the person supposed to help me has yet to come over).

So am I officially "white trash" now? How do I get away from this?

easy to get out....get one of those under 300 dollar instant conduit sheds/shops/garages ..cover the GTO under it slide the bike frames behind it and put a tarp over them they will just take up space.Slide the rest of the junk beside them and get a tarp for that, bind it good so the wind wont uncover it .Now take a few steps back and you will see you will look organized uncluttered and maybe a chance to save the Goat right there at home.WARNING IF YOU LET ANY OF YOUR INLAWS OR PETS TAKE UP RESIDENCE IN THERE well then my friend you are white trash go directly to the video store and rent JOE DIRT so you get the accent the hair style and the clothes right...and sit and watch Talladaga Nights thru your VCR with the tv that works, that rests on top of the old tv set that no longer works...crack open A ice cold SHULTZ MALT LIGUOR BEER and enjoy your life!

Im so far behind ,that I think Im in first.

Branson - you are getting senile in your old age. This is the 3rd time you've asked me about my GTO since I joined the site. 1967, burgundy and primer, 400, th400, his/hers, 3.55 posi rear. Your car is a vedoro green 1968 and it doesn't run. Am I right?

Yeah, The neighbor put up one of those plastic white tents, you can barely see it over the top of the fence so I don't mind. His can hide two cars and I wonder where he got it. I have to get the motorcycles out of sight, technically within NYC limits I am only allowed four and I currently have 7 on premesis and the neighbors and I are stating to be on not good terms.

You know you are white trash when you live in a home that is Mobile, surrounded by 10 cars and motorcycles that are not!

Geeto, how do you get away with that in Long Island, unless of course you live in East Northport....

I know the feeling, before I moved I had a 71 F100 (yard truck) a 72 Oldsmobile Cutlass for parts (couldn't chop it up though cause it had no rust and was perfect) a 85 Cutlass (first car) and then a couple raidiators and stuff like that on the side. Finally I had to get rid of it all before I moved. I miss my 85 Cutlass the most since it was my first girl

Yeah...I realized that after I posted....but was too lazy to check the archives. I'm on a lot of forums....I don't retain much.

I live in a small town where you aren't supposed to have more than 2 unregistered vehicles on your land, even if they are out of sight. That includes parts enough for 2 vehicles.
I have a dead chevy van (parts vehicle) International fire truck (that hasn't been started in 4 years), a jeep (plow vehicle) and about 30 motorcycles. They don't count all the lawn tractors and real tractors.

This is a true story.
About ten years ago I went to one of our town meetings up on the mountain. The topic was junk cars....they passed a new ordinance that said no more than seven junk cars on your property without a junkyard permit......ordinance number two that passed....make it easier to get a junkyard permit....I shit you not.

So, it's OK to be white trash.....as long as you have the proper permit.

I like it.

Well, I kinda qualify...my home is not a mobile, but it's small and needs work. It's a bit neglected 'cause much of my $$$ goes for bike stuff.
In the driveway is the fading, dented, one flat tire remnant of my old car, an '85 Chrysler New Yorker. It was my Mom's (RIP) car & so I can't quite bear getting rid of it. It hasn't ran since about 2002.
On the side of the house I have a rusty '74 RD200, and an even rustier '75 TS50 Suzuki. On my covered porch out front sits the rolling chassis of the '74 TX-500 I bought last month. I used to have the rolling chassis of an '72 R5 and '75 RD125 in the back yard, but I finally hauled 'em off to the scrap yard, so I'm making progress.

I want to build a workshop in my backyard, but I'm afraid it would just become a repository for old bike chassis and parts...hmm.

Worse, I get away with it in NYC (Queens). The apartment (top floor of a house) I live in has a really long but narrow driveway that opens up to the back yard and a two car garage. I have one side of the garage (filled with bike parts) and in parking area for two cars outside I have the GTO Shell (on blocks) in one spot and the GTO in another. Behing the shell I park 4 bikes. The driveway narrows to one car just past the bikes so you can't see them from the street and the fence is really high so the 1st floor neighbors can't look in.

At my parents house the neighborhood watch are like nazi's - When I still lived there I took the plates off my car to turn them into the DMV (when we wnet from liberty plates to blue plates) and someone called the police to report an unregistered car in the driveway. I got home and a cop was waiting for me. When I explained the situation and showed him my Fireman's id and the new registration and plates, we both went over to the neighbor who called's house and kindly explained what a harassing phone call to the police was. Since then I keep everything in the garage or under a cover and my parents don't get bothered.

My friend who lived 8 blocks away used to park his car on the lawn (1967 Firebird). One of his neighbors complained regularly to the point where one day when the guy was mowing the lawn with his garage open, my buddy backed his firebird into the open garage, did a lengthy burnout, and then tore ass up the street. Now his younger brother parks his car on the lawn and nobody says anything.

Edit: Dammnit I just read it over and I am white trash. FUCK!
