I remember renting at one point and I got a warning for one of my car tires being parked hanging halfway off the drive and onto the rocks in the front yard. Rocks, not grass or bushes but rocks... All I could do was laugh. People and their little perfect worlds are comical to me! BTW, when people say HOA's are good cause it keeps home values up I typically just wonder when they're going to move cause they obviously bought their house as an investment and not a home. I bought my house in Az as a home just as I bought my house here as a home. If I profit, awesome, if I loose money, so be it. Either way, my goal is achieved by making it my home, not what the rest of the block thinks my home should be.
Tonight sucks... I gotta pull the upper control arms off the race truck which involves removing coilovers and all sorts of other goodies so that I can tighten up 4 nuts. The truck should be pretty much race ready after that. Just need to double check on board supplies, pull it out into the sunlight and inspect the chassis for cracks and then load it on the trailer and park it till race week! I'm a month ahead of race day... Strange concept to not have a crap load to do all the way up till we hit the starting line!
