Full story w/ more pics . . .


"LOS ANGELES COUNTY - Drive around the unincorporated area west of Covina, and you might notice them: a dented and discolored black Plymouth parked near a divider island on Lark Ellen Avenue; a black Dodge Dart with a busted side window on Cypress Street, glass shards still fanned out on the asphalt; a line of three oldies veiled by car covers sitting along Aspan Avenue.

"He treats it like his own personal parking lot," said resident Janet Bubbert, who filed a complaint with the county last year.

thank gawd for folks like this, who set the bar so high...

now i am comforted in knowing that there are more compulsive people than me. my nine, beaten, rusty 02's are nothing compared to 48...

i have a neighbor with three cars that haven't moved in 20 years, just parked, claiming the community space as his own.

So if a guy's ambitious enough to keep air in the tires and keep the cars mobile, he can start a "rolling salvage yard" right there in the city streets? No EPA regs and property contamination issues to deal with. The city sweeps the street for you, and the neighbor keep track of your inventory. Hmmm, this could work.
