Grandpa Dan & Grandma Cookie collect American-made antique, classic muscle cars. They ALL run and are registered and in the process of being 'finished'.
Code enforcement fascists from 'city haul' allegedly got one complaint. They went to court and committed perjury stating, (I quote), "ALL of the cars appear to be dismantled, junk, inoperative, salvaged. . .and there is
trash and debris in the yard." = B.S. blatant lie.
These neo-Nazis showed up with eight cars full of code enforcement 'officers' = city employees with a bad attitude and a badge. They brought along two sheriffs deputies and a detective. For CARS?! All the cars started and ran and moved forward and backward. Ok.

Next, the back yard (NOT in plain sight) = a fishing expedition / witch hunt. I had to take down my steel car canopy (EVERYBODY has one) but mine was deemed, "An illegal steel building" even though it has no walls, no front or back and no floor! I had to move my billiard table, my weight lifting set; I could only have 'patio furniture'. PERIOD.

My 4 cars in the backyard (1963 TBird, 1966 Coronet, 1967 Coronet and 1966 Chevy stepside pickup) had to be moved because Hesperia does NOT allow any inoperative, non-registered cars in their city! I complied and paid all fines and levies etc.

Meanwhile I found out my friend & mechanic, Robin Garcia was ALLOWED to have 12 (yes twelve) in operative cars in his backyard by Hispanic code enforcement 'officers'. They winked and nodded and told Robin to "Put them in a steel poled canopy." ! That was the very 'building' I was forced to tear down.

I told Judd McIlvane, "the TroubleShooter" that Hesperia needs to save it's zero tolerance hard-line for the drug labs and gang bangers not the car collection of Grandpa Dan & Grandma Cookie.

Somebody needs to be fined, somebody needs to be fired and somebody needs to go to jail for this outrage!
P.S. FYI my block has no sidewalk, no curb, no gutter, no street, no sewer, no storm drain and no streetlights. But we do have gangs, graffiti, litter and illegal dumping, guns being shot in the air, illegal, explosive fireworks going off; never mind that sh*t: let's look for some guy with cars to give a 'ticket' and make the city some revenue!

Fighting the Same Fight

AUTHOR: JJRoute66 - (USA)

 Captain Dan please email me. Our family has been going through the same thing in Glendora, CA. My family has been held by gun point, threatened, and maliciously attacked by code enforcement and the city, simply because they do not approve of our classic car business.
