That's better than where I used to live... Any uninsured vehicles on the property were considered derelict and the township would confiscate them unless they were stored indoors or you could produce receipts proving the car (that car) was being repaired.

cant show any pics until I get her here
I drove it to a friends house and left it in his driveway
until I can get a temporary 20 day plate
should have the plate tomorrow , now I just need someone to
drive me down to mass to get it home

it has some funky looking dayton wire wheels with knock offs
they will be taken off asap, lol, not a fan of those
plus they are showing there age a bit
I have a nice set of factory alloys for it
kinda wish I kept them chromies I sold to a member a couple months ago

this car is really nice :)

In GA you cannot have a car that is unregistered in your driveway at all...they will even come onto your yard and the back of the house if they know its back there, lol...amazingly, as long as the car is registered, the City of Atlanta doesnt care, no matter what condition its in, ha!

outsider
11-29-10, 02:22 PM
that sounds like just a money thing to me. You have to pay to register it...even if it's an eyesore and never moves and doesn't even run, as long as they're getting money out of you. I'd just build a fence so they can't see into my land :D

Stingroo
11-29-10, 02:23 PM
That to me is total bull crap. lol In FL you can't have an unregistered vehicle in your driveway either, but we have at our house a few times. Pretty much as long as it's backed into the driveway nobody cares.

Happened to my folks a couple of times when I was in high school, in fact they "cleaned" up the whole neighborhood that week and got everybody. Didnt know it was a state thing though, thought it was just city ordinance.

Actually you are right, it is usually a city ordinance, and in the metro cities and surrounding areas, most of the cities and municipalities have ordinances regarding that. In the city of Atlanta, you are not even supposed to park on the grass. But my family is from a rural county in GA and there, they could care less about the cars in your yard, lol.

@OUTSIDER, it definitely is a money thing. Say you have a car you are not driving or planning to sell perhaps, and you do not renew the registration, they send you a letter pretty much asking whats going on with the car and what plate is on it, lol...

Matt
most likely sell it
, I had to replace the e&g grill with a stock one
since it was damaged a bit
and the wheels are coming off for a set of factory alloys
the vogue tyres are in decent shape , so I will retain them
it has a super clean under carriage since it was in navada most of its life
the paint is near perfect, roof is a little tattered , but I can fix that up too

should keep me busy for the next few days!!

Jim, nice one man:thumbsup:. HOWEVER, I just really hate those tops on these Fleets (and you know that already). You said you are getting rid of the wheels so I wont comment on those (unless that was a comment).

All those damn FWB's I swear I wanna be just like you when I grow up man.

Stingroo
12-02-10, 08:07 AM
Yeah I don't like the top but at least it's clean. I actually do like the wheels, kind of. It's weird. What are they, 15's? Maybe it's the high profile tires that make them look like they fill the wheel well or something, but those aren't too bad at all.

Damn, that's one sharp FWB. I like the whole thing! Hey how much would it cost to have a top like that done on a 93-96 FWB? It looks classy. I actually saw a 98 Deville last night that was customized, it had the chrome panels like the Fleetwood added to the bottom of the doors and fenders. The top looked just like the one in the pics shown, but what was cool, is that it had the little lights on the side added to the top. I don't know how it was done, but it looked really nice and classy.

I think its an aftermarket roof
it has prestige edition stitched into it where the
small crest and emblem would be
the car was delivered with a vinyl roof
image them ripping off that new roof:annoyed:

Im not a fan of the carriage roof
but the one on my triple black 95 is like brand new
not even a broken stitch, it was delivered with vinyl roof delete

im sure the wheels looked good when new
but they have seen better days
there not my bag, I do have a mint set of factory alloys for her
sucks its getting so damn cold up here, cant get much done!!!!!http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v301/hemijimbo/STA71974.jpg

Im not sure anyone out there still has those roofs for sale

I saw one of those fleetwood devilles I guess there actually stretched out a bit
but I dont like the front wheel drive northstar much (no offense to the fans)
it did look pretty nice with the added chrome and all
I would think being in so-cal you would have a better shot at finding the custom stuff for these cars

I love those tops for some reason over the plain vinyl. We do have more choices of auto custom shops out here in CA. The problem is, even some of the great ones have a hard time getting the material for the tops to do them. Didn't dealerships added on those cloth tops to Devilles and Fleetwoods back then? I just got my top redone this summer, but thinking some time in the future I could change it up for a cloth one, it's going to cost mucho bucks, but hey I'm keeping the Caddy forever so might as well make a good investment to keep it nice.

You can still get the tops. An E&G Classics installer can order it. It is fiberglass with a cloth or vinyl covering.
