I finally found my old 1954 Chevrolet Deluxe Panel truck.
I sold it in 1982.
The truck is fairly intact. picture
1 rear fender is missing & the engine does not run.
My intentions are to use the parts on my other 1954 Panel truck and parking it in the driverway is only
only temporary.

I parked it in my driveway, 10 days ago.
2 days ago I received a "Parking Violation"
The violation states,
Violation Type: Municipal ordinance
Parking Ordinace, all vehicles must be operational and registered.

Has anyone ever heard of a parking violation like this?
It is not on the street it is in the driveway.

Common law in many municipalities. No parking of non-operating vehicles on the street, lawn or driveway. We even have a law against repairing your vehicle while it's parked on the street in front of your own home. No parking on your lawn whether it's running, registered, tagged, insured or just unloading a load from your truck.

A veteran - whether active duty, retired, national guard, or reserve - is someone who, at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to The 'United States of America', for an amount of "up to and including my life."

My in-laws had to rent a space out side of town to park their motor home. Happens every where, fortunately i live out side of town but in a covenant addition. Watch the news and will see people being sited for flying and American flag or a too large of one. We are told that we are nation of laws but not all of them make sense.

Covenants are created by neighborhood associations with the rationale to protect property values. The people that get the power in this situation are the neighborhood citizens, and the government is just the enforcer. I know some folks love to bash government when ever possible, but this one is way off target. Often some citizens are overzealous about old vehicles, trailers and campers. I bet the plastic tarp on your truck torqued off one of your neighbors and they reported you. I don't know why, but plastic tarps are a lightening rod for "aesthetic police" type neighbors. I once lived in a neighborhood that did not allow any car work even inside your own garage! Once in that neighborhood, an "activist neighbor" stalked and confronted me because I was using a circular saw for a wood working project. She was screaming at me about working on cars...lets just say we never had them over for dinner.

I don't know the best solution for you, other than careful creative concealment and trying to pacify the nosey neighbor that busted you. Sorry you are having problems, I wish folks were more compassionate with our hobby but rules are often created from precedent from past poor behavior from someone long ago.

Why not? You could have eaten her liver with some fava beans and a nice chianti.

True, sort of morbid, but true. She was a nasty old beast I don't think the liver would have been very tasty.

One thing that the "greasy spoon" never ceases to provide is great humor. Thanks for the laugh.
