Today a city worker came by when I was cutting my grass and gave me a note (next time will be a ticket) for having a car on jackstands in my driveway.
Apparantly there is a city ordnance that prohibits it. It also staes that any car in public view (such as in a driveway) has to look as though it is driveable on public roads. That means even cars that are inoperable, must have that appearance.
I did put the crossmember back on the car and put the engine brace back on as well.
I put the engine down - resting on a piece of wood resting on the brace.
I put the tires back on the car and now it looks like it can drive down the road.
The car has no transmission in it and the front brake assemblies are hanging by bungee cords in the wheel wells.
I would have put the car in my garage, but the wheel kept trying to fall off when I moved the car.
There is no drive shafts and the only thing holding the wheels on the car is the wheel bearings.
The left one popped out as the wheel rolled.
The city code inspector will be back in 10 days to make sure I am in compliance with the city ordnance.
I hope to have the transmission changed by then.
Anyone else have some surprised inspectors complain when they were working on their car??
