  1. update sorta? A few weeks ago while attending a local towns annual " pie ' celebration ( This town being a few short miles away from the possible location of the cars original owner). I talked to many of the participating car show owners old and young with their local cars on display . I asked them about the Auburn ,explained what I knew so far and showed them pictures and handed out some fliers I had printed up, although some stated they had no knowledge of what it was or any possible help to its source , a few spoke of a local police officer /car guy who grew up in the area and should know "something".It was during this conversation with a few show car owners that this officer was nearby they called him over , I introduced myself ... started to explain of my quest, handed him a flier he looked at it handed it back and said "don't waste your time " and walked away? huh? Why the curt response at a his citys social celebration ? Did he know something making his answer a true fact? ??? sadly the local historical society storage facility was burned thru arson..almost all documents and photos were lost. related ??? well I'm still searching...........
  2. no new news still lookin for the engine and frame... not a single lead as to previous owners or location of prior storage..
  3. It started with having some 50's cars parked along my double garage in the winter and not tagged ....they complained of them being visible .. then when I moved them in the spring behind the garage to an area that was fenced in put collector $ plates on them..they wanted to see "the way I stored them " which was" not allowed "no vehicles parked on the lawn" so I put patio paver under each of the wheels which was "legal"but torqed them off ...they complained that my metal lawn furniture sets could not be stacked against the back of the garage for the winter'"looks like a pile of junk" ,the tire /wheel rack back there also was not legal"car parts could not be stored outside"I had a set of roller tires with wheels in every bolt pattern ready for when I found another car about 6 sets with another 5 sets of nice painted take off wheels all coverd by a new blue tarp so nothing was visible as to what was under it. they even complained that me being a single guy had no reason to have 4 barbeque grills " as a single guy how would you use that many at one time?" so I set up 3 different spots in the yard for sitting with a barbie by each one left one by the back door of the house moved the tire rack to my parents acerage 17 miles away then on the next visit they started on the boat ...never ever asking me if it was mine .. just to move it onto paved surface or into my garage .. when I said I could not do that or would not do that .. they started the tickets and 30 day compliance ,threats and such... during all this my brother came over with out telling me and borrowed my swapmeet trailer for one week and left the contents bicycles and kids peddle cars on the drive way ... "thats not allowed as it attracts vermin and without a family/kids there is no reason for me to even own them!" you mean to tell me that when 4 bikes and 2 peddle cars are set together that attracts vermin? like at the local grade school every day or the family with kids that leaves stuff all over the yard .. that what I have here for 4 days is a bad thing?andI can't even"own "them! On beautiful spring day a buddy stopped with his hot rod and parked on the front lawn he wanted to show me his new stainless exhaust while we were laying next to the car to look at it the officer stopped I opened the door to turn off the car..she was going to give me a ticket for working on vehicles outside of a garage and parking on the lawn ... my freind tried to explain but I stopped him and said let her do her job ... she went to her car to do the citations when he drove accross the lawn and around her and left .. she said where's your car going I said it was not mine and I do not work on cars in the lawn .. the numbered citations had to be voided she was pissed.. In the end the boat owning neighber was notified soon after and being a widow with a 7 year old son she was shook about my hassle and now hers, I gave her some pavers and put it on them for her but in the same spot I still mowed around it for her.. they stopped coming over after that .. When I asked how much of my front yard could be paved to park on the city permit dept. had never "been asked that before?" and would get back to me .. they stated that the right of way on the road in front of my house was 90 feet from the center of the road ..taking up one 3rd of my front lawn and not much else could change I measured and the quit mowing the edge along the street,let it go back to prairie grasses.. like the center islands in our community the rabbits loved it they complained of me not keeping up my lawn ,, I told them it was not mine if planting, gardening, or fences were not allowed.. even asked for a acerage reduction at tax time but mostly its the city or GOD to take care of. or they could haul in gravel and keep that area under weed control easy.. AND ON AND ON I now live on 13 acres and have a lake place on 6...I still keep stuff as neat as I can but like to see what I haveparked on the grass sometimes .. we have three large out buildings and have a total of 23 cars and yes some stuff sits out we just buit a 40x40 garage at the lake to put boats and pontoons in....and 2 summer cars I have seen that communty officer since .. and said "remember me ""'ANYBODY TELL YOU WHAT A GOOD JOB YOUR DOING LATELY? MAYBE SOMEDAY BEFORE YOU DIE SOME ONE MIGHT..BUT MOST LIKELY NOT!.. so beware that once they get access they start adding to the list .....never let them in the yard, garage , house .. without a written reason from the city.. and make them bring you any ordinace violations to you in writing..nothing they see as wrong is wrong until they can prove it in writing I was working part time at a attorneys office during all this..
  4. maybe your reduced sq. footage would allow a patio or deck adjacent to it .. then have doors that open on to them for your cars access.. I personally had events dealing with fines and possible jail because of refusal to move a boat/trailer on lawn near my side yard...after numerous tickets and threats of removal to impound ... I refused to back down I would not move the boat and trailer repeating to every officer that came to fine me... they demanded I move it I said no ,no no I wil not .. When the ordiance officer called the police and they showed up and wanted to know why I would not move the boat ... with one ordiance officer 3 sqaud cars 3 police officers standing in front of me .. I relented and said I refused to move the neighbors boat/trailer onto my property they had never asked me who owned it just to move it the property line between the lots was angled even though i mowed around the boat it was 6 feet off my property this was the end of the visits I asked for copies of the reports from all officers involved covering 7 months of almost weekly harrassment ,officer visits day and night on weekends .... they were not sent
  5. well here's an update sorta I slipped on ice new years eve and have a pinched nerve in my middle upper back...after 7 doctors visits and numerous scans .. I am now in a 8 week therapy program and await getting better.. it hurts to sit .. in a chair or in a car and my left arm is 70%numb we also are near the end of daily radiation treatments on my girlfriend which started in middle November... enuf of the whining and to the important stuff so now whats happening with the AUBURN YUP a few folks from here have expressed some intrest in the "parts"or the whole pile its now buried by our 30 inch plus snow this week I was able to sit a few times and compose a poster which I started to distribute in the GRANDY area ..there is two local auctions today FEB. 5th and each auctioneer gladly said they would post the information .. they believed that some action will come of the poster... they both have older long time residents that attend thier auctions. they also thought it was a interesting quest.. Basicly the color poster shows the GRANDY name plate new and rusty old a pic of the cowls current condition and a pic of a blue restored AUBURN from the middle of the front door forward(the pic i used was from a 2door) a request for info and a brief listing of the history I knew.. I used the blue 2 door because it would have most resmbled the car I have ..I know it shows a 12 cyl car but heck its close enuf??? other than that? the mice have gotten into my casino birthday prize 2010 MERCEDES C63 AMG before I could get it into the new car capsule . I bought one then after being misshiped and the delivered after xmas ,I got hurt..then our furnace quit so it was to cold to unfold the after getting the garage stall above 60 degrees..we started it up JAN 13th and couple dozen acorns shot out the exhaust... darn it I hate being laid up.. then while zipping up the bubble the zipper broke on one side .. we have it duct taped now and inflated and as of yet don't see any varmits inside the bubble ... we are at the lake place this weekend to take down xmas decorations up since the day after thanksgiving.. is it spring yet? :roll:
