I'm betting that engine rattles the woman's house.  I would have asked the owner what he could to rectify the noise.  If it was unsatisfactory or he refused to do much of anything I would inquire with the police and the noise ordinance.

By looking at the video, it's obvious that he didn't build the car himself. The "pro street" fad ended years ago when peopled realized that although those type of cars looked hot, they couldn't be driven safely on the street. They hydroplane in wet weather and because of the rear distance between the tires were all over the road when caught in the road ruts. In fact some collector car insurance companies wouldn't insure those types of vehicles. I think this guy purchased someone's "white elephant" and might regret his purchase.

We had an issue with a neighbor a few years ago, but it pertain to speeding. We live on a cul de sac road with a speed limit of 30 mph, the neighbor lived two houses down and drove a BMW sports car. By the time he would pass my house, he had that car going well over 60 mph. After a few passes, I decided to introduce myself and explain to him that I have four children and there are other children that live on this street and very nicely asked if he could slow down. I got the " yes I well " reply. It continued....

I called the local / county police department, they came out and told me that they could not do anything unless they catch him in the act.  What ??  It continues..... My next call went to the NY State Police, the Trooper came to my home, I explain the situation.

The Trooper told me that he will take care of the situation right now..... he drove down to the neighbor and spoke to him...... case closed !

 

We have not had any issues with speeding on our street now for 6 or 7 years..... and the guy actually waves at me if I'm out in the yard doing work !  LOL

You can definitely choose not to be a jerk if you have a loud vehicle.

 

Unbelievable! They really have control over being a jerk? Come on. I thought their lifestyle forced then to be like their TV hero.

When he told her that it's a race car she should have said that this street isn't a race track. Is he running it with open headers? If so that's illegal so maybe she should get the police involved....

Your trooper sounds a lot like our County Sheriff.   He will talk to people and essentially tell them to knock it off, because if he catches them it won't be good.   He is a professional officer who happens to be elected.

I live in a smaller suburb of Chicago. I have had neighbors test their drag cars on the street next to the local grade school.  Another neighbor not only had chickens but a rooster as well.  The rooster did not bother me but the drag car did. Many calls to the police finally caught him pulling it back into the garage. I don't believe it went well. Someone else complained about the rooster as it either was eaten or sent back to the farm.

It didn't sound that loud in  the video.

But it certainly shouldn't be a daily driver.

I suppose after a few fill ups the newness will wear off.

What time does he go to work in the morning? I really would not want to hear that early every morning

He's like the "power parkers" at some of the car shows I go to. They need to park their car where everybody can see it, so they get up at 4 AM and let their car idle in the motel parking lot for 10 minutes, before they head to the fairgrounds. They don't care that they have ticked off everyone in the motel, it's all about me, me, me!

Reminds me of the stories where a new subdivision is built out in the country next to a drag strip that's been there for decades, then the new homeowners try to get the strip shut down because it's too noisy. If you have a problem with that noise, why consider buying that house in the first place?

 

 

There is a landfill in our rural township (36 sq miles, 5k residents, not a single gas station, traffic signal, etc).  The landfill has been operating since at least the late 1950s but of course, now is much larger and corporate owned.  The benefit to our community is the 'hosting fees' which brings a regular and financially beneficial income to our community.  We have the best fire apparatus and roads in the area and a very healthy treasury (upwards of $10 million) plus have purchased a couple large parcels to retain as nature preserves and future development for parks or municipal service locations.  Residents have the opportunity also for (almost) unlimited free disposal. 

 

Located on the far NE corner of our township, it doesn't bother me one bit as the wind blows into the next adjoining township; still mostly rural but significantly more populated and offering most urban services.  The homes there are significantly pricier and not unexpected, homes and even an elementary school were constructed just east of the large, busy and often smelly landfill.

 

What comes next?  Of course, complaints about the smell and how the landfill should be shut down. "For the Children"  Sorry idiots, guess you shouldn't have bought or built there.  Mount Trashmore is clearly visible for miles (but not from my house).  I looked at a home downwind from the landfill before relocating to where I am now.  It was a beautiful piece of property, the right size and price, great trees but you could see and smell 'the dump'.  Un unh!!!

Neighbors - Do they really  care...  If I have three car trailers in the back yard.?? Now I put up a 96K garage.. wow now my property tax will go up...@@@  They will get the same tax upgrade.

 

My wife is happy I do not have 3 car trailers an two cars parked in the backyard..

 

Back to the 80;s My dad put a rare 55 chewy two door in the back yard and everyone wanted it gone  - I was 16 at the time.. I wish we still had it.. it had a floor shift..
