Personally I like this:

A rare early Toledo two door in a fetching shade of turd, except the bits that aren't. Obviously I'd need a drivetrain which is where this:

Crusty looking four door would come in, handily located in Glasgow already...

And that's BEFORE they are lined up on my street behind my equally fucked Dolomite and I decided that they're all good enough to be "saved".

Just hide them around the local streets all with the same number plate, no-one will notice.

Finally figured out who complained about my Shitefest tent.

 

While refitting the Doloshite's headlight and older lady who lives in my tenement approached me and asked if I had a license for trading cars. I said no, as I'm not trading cars. She didn't believe me and said I was causing a problem for residents parking and that she'd be "monitoring the situation". Why she cares I know not, as she doesn't have a car or drive.

 

My landlady did mentioned an unusual lady who lived along downstairs, my suspicions of it being complaining woman are now confirmed.

 

Can't wait until I get to explain to the police that car traders rarely keep a car for 5 years before selling it on and that over that period of time I've probably lost about £5k in my "business venture"...

Sounds like the complaint my grumpy old neighbour put onto me. He also said he'd report me to the inland revenue. Kinda wish he did as it'd force me to calculate how much money I've wasted on cars...

Do you actually need a licence from the council to trade cars?

You're causing no complaints from the other residents on the road are you? Plus you have V5s, insurance and MoT certificates for the 2 cars you own. Tell her to keep her beak out of matters that don't concern her.

Neighbours can be real wankers.

Other than that - ignore the bint - complaints will only make your life harder and antagonising her won't get you anywhere at all fella. Just plod on - you have enough to get on with.

I assume she thinks I'm operating an illegal business from my flat and dodging tax. Given the lack of evidence I give not a solitary fuck.
If she lived next door to FOAD she'd die.

The fact she brought up parking is amusing given she doesn't have a car to my knowledge and there are several cars on my street which don't move for months at a time or have expired tax/MOTs, they are just less distinct.
Mine are all legal and used regularly!

Neighbour up the road decided to have a pop at me over the fact that I have a couple of cars recently, apparently having decided that I was "rich". Ignoring the fact that his daily driver cost 10x what mine did, costs 3x what mine does to tax and totally ignoring the fact that he himself usually has a spare car lying around.

 

I did somethat totally out of character for me, and I'm not proud of it. I told him to fuck off, and walked away. If he won't talk to me again then I'll call that a result.

I have thus far been lucky with my neighbours car-wise although I suspect one or 2 whom I don't know well might possibly think I am up to something because there has been 5 changes of car so far this year.

Just tell her that your cars are your concern and she can tell whoever she likes.

Thank her for constantly watching as you now feel much more convinced the perpetrators of any damage to them would get caught.

In cheerier news the Doloshite's starting issue has been much improved with a new rotor arm. It was a good mm longer than the old one...

New matching HT leads look the part as well.
