Nothing better to do!?!?!?! Yesterday, I picked up my "just purchased" 1982 Spider (non-running) from the garage that was trying to rip off the previous owner. I had to drive almost 70 Miles to get there and then fight DC traffic, got a parking ticket too!! AAA gave me a hard time (taking it from a repair facility to a private residence) and now I have to figure out how to get the darned thing towed back here to my place so I can work on it. The reason I had to do all that? Because if I didn't get it off the garage lot, they were going to begin charging me $75 a day for keeping it there!

Luckily, it's a beautiful car! I have always liked the 1982 because it is one of those 'cheater' years. It was the very first year for the Bosch L-Jetronic FI and has the leather, A/C, pwr. windows, etc of the Series 3 cars, but didn't have the spoilers and stuff of the Series 3 cars. This one is a rare Black Metallic car with Brown Leather. I bought it from the original owner, so I will get the window sticker and all!

Rev high! Alex 'Sandor' Csank

Yup. It is now sitting in front of the Capital Chapter President's home (under a cover, but on the street).

Good to hear that. Oh the joys of having a big driveway no on street parking for my fleet.

Waaaiit a minute! Let's go back a page. LM, did you get that workbench cleaned up? I'd bow to that kind of pressure.

Street parking...what's that? Isn't that when you visit people? I've never had an issue with "street parking" since my house doesn't sit on a street, front, back, sideways or otherwise.

Silly, it is where you keep the asphalt that won't fit in the garage.

When parking is a problem do what I did - sell the Spider, GTV6s, and Milano and buy a wide driveway with garage and house attached. THEN but more 164s!
