This sounds like an outstanding idea.

I could totally use a parts Jeep. I keep finding little stupid issues as I work on it, and it would be much easier to just walk over to your garage than it is to try to find the parts around here. Plus, they're not cheap, especially if I want OEM.

I wonder how MrsG would feel about moving next door to, and befriending, a self-proclaimed functioning alcoholic with a penchant for ogling young women at his next-door neighbor's pool. I suppose there's only one way to find out!

The best thing about a parts car is that it helps you figure out how to put things back together. When I did the head gasket on my pickup I spent an hour trying to figure out how to reattach the A/C bracket. Wish I'd had another one to peek into.

The compressor, power steering pump, probably the hideously twisted bracket itself--they are all made to fit a variety of applications. And the motor has a dozen studs sticking out of it. So it was harder to figure out than it sounds like it should have been.

I was involuntarily recruited to serve on my co-op's board. No one in my building wants to serve, so once you're on, you're on until you leave the building (or serve 20 years, which is what the most recent ex-member did.) Someone's got to serve on the board to address the co-op's issues, but I would not describe serving on the board as a pleasurable experience, even though meetings are only once a month. It has become worse ever since the addition of the most recent member, a very pleasant recent retiree who just loves to talk and talk and talk. I have started making a habit of drinking a martini before the meeting. The only saving grace is that I don't do much compared to the president or the secretary.

Yeah, there's the thing. Do not let yourself get drafted into being an officer.

Are there attendance requirements? Any board I've sat on has them. Easiest way to get yourself off any board you do not want to be on is to just stop showing up to the meetings.

With a co-op couldn't they make attendance a requirement for maintaining residency?

I want to maintain good relations with my neighbors, and the monthly board meetings are not that big a hassle. I've missed out on a couple of happy hours I would have liked to attend, that's it.

Anywho, according to 3 witnesses, Z had bandages on the back of his head and over his nose.

If they could do that they could also just make joining the board a requirement for continued residency...and that's not the case, so you decide.

Se we're now back to the dead boy!

You would think that the stuff in the above link would be enough to make a compelling case for bond. Let's see if the PC court allows that.

Interesting. BTW, I've decided I don't care about this story. I only care about the thread and will become probably slightly more indignant in the following pages.
