I'd love to, but my job is here. I'm 54 y/o and getting started in IT again is for the kids that have all the current up to date education and certificates.

Code Compliance told me I'd have to be able to get in, start, and drive my car at the very least for it to be allowed to stay on my property.

Check the Car Show lists, you will not find any in Miami Dade unless they are in an incorporated city/village that did not follow the county's new regulations. Not even the weekly or monthly gatherings at the local restaurant or mall parking lot.

Fire Department has been hitting the businesses all over the place for code violations, permit violations. Things that used to be OK a now not, and that is what happened to Stan.

Pardon my ignorance but how does a car show concern the fire department.Or is it the local government that has stopped them?

Someone has interests in car dealerships/repair involved in the regulations?

Actually, I think its all complaint driven. They are more concerned about the people complaining than general public. There is currently a larger scale version of that going on, but I really don't want to get into politics here.

Yep. I can envision dealers & repair shops lobbying the county board to impose such regulations in order to drive their business. I know trash/junk laws have their place, but if its their property (leased or otherwise) then laws of this nature should not prohibit one from this activity.

Thumbs Up Code enforcement

[QUOTE=69GT350H;7593577]Miami-Dade County is coming down hard on us car guys. No more car shows unless we meet new strict standards. Fire code violations all over the place. I had to remove my car from my property as I was violating county code and someone reported me.

I had the same problem in Broward w/ my son's 69 Mach. Code Enf tagged it and I went and got a legal tag and put it on my classic insurance. I then turned the back towards the house & covered it up. The CF Nazi showed up w/ a cop on a Sunday about it again. I informed him it was tagged & insured and he wanted to see it for himself. I asked where his warrant was and the cop agreed he needed one. I then told the cop the CF Nazi was warned against trespassing and the cop told him he cannot enter the property w/o a warrant and that he had to take my word for the tag and investigate it himself. Never saw him again after that! It's also why, after being a Broward native, I bailed North 200 miles, back to the South and bought acreage to park all the cars! Dade & Broward have become a hotbed of Lib morons telling everyone how to live.

My car is tagged and insured, Dade county does not care. They actually define it as a "Junk" vehicle as it has no engine, transmission, or wheels. Again, all this still falls under the "Minor repairs" only rule that can last no longer than 72 hours. And actually, I would not have been bothered if a neighbor had not complained to them.

Stan has been battling for years now, same as my brothers boat repair business. Things that have been in place for years they are coming back and re-inspecting to issue violations. Stan's place is a single story warehouse that he has erected a sort of 2nd floor in. This is at least one of the issues the county is having issues with.

Everything is now political, which is an unfortunate consequence of
excessive government interference at all levels.

Personally, I would vote with my feet. But before I left, I'd whack
the ol' hornets nest. Alert and organize the local car enthusiasts
while bringing in antique car collector "special interest groups".
Sick some SEMA lawyers on these fascist jerks.

Municipalities and counties constantly pass laws and regulations
which violate state and/or federal constitutional protections.
No one thinks to challenge them, but the lawmakers and their
lawyers are often surprisingly dumb. This case sounds like a serious
violation of private property rights. Attorneys love to take on
pro-bono civil rights violations. There's big money involved with
such settlements.

If a private citizen wants to collect car parts, be it Packard hood
ornaments in a glass case, or car body shells in a locked warehouse,
it's absolutely off limits to government regulations provided there
are no safety, noise, or eyesore issues which might affect the
property values of other citizens. A corporation is another matter,
of course.

The car show thing is a clear freedom of assembly infringement.
There's no way to enforce that silliness. It's just more fodder for
a major civil rights case. Organize informal drive-in shows which
are true political rallies. Hand out fliers on the subject of private
property rights violations. Any government official stupid enough
to touch that political bomb deserves what he gets.

Move along. Nothing to see here.

Cash talks and BS walks. Stan did a pay off deal on his previous location......Now THAT
was a mess. Problem #2.....Knowing the right putz that speaks Spanish can be paid
off! Have lived here a long time like Stan and it's know the right deal. A house down
the street is getting a heavy remodel. Obviously he knows the right deal and the county
has not been there!

I grew up in DuPage Co. adjacent to Cook Co. ie Chicago. Same deal. Two guys who
had black top business. They changed their political party and they were IN!!

DAde Co. operates the same way. I have a one car garage and have painted 5 completes. 2 Corvettes and 3 or 4 Mustangs. My one neighbor speaks Spanish and we're friends!

Whoa. So you can't even perform an engine swap in your own garage? How oppressive and dystopian.
