    How annoying!!!

    Totally love the 'look like it was going to be stolen' idea.... BUT maybe that's what they want.

    Let the tires out and call it in abandoned.......

    Call the council, some councils have covenants in place to prevent this sort of stuff from happening.

    Where I used to live the council didn't care we had people park over our driveway all the time so you had to actually drop over a gutter nearly scrapping a tree to get out they never did anything. So someone in the complex wrote on their windscreen in lipstick, another time they left a note saying next time they will smash the windows in.....

    Ugh. We have this issue too. The front of our place looks like a car yard. Our neighbors have a garage, but they use it as a kind of entertainment/rumpus room. They have three cars AND a boat, all out the front and half on on our place.

    Yes I have an idea, introduce yourself and ask them to move it. You might be suprised!!!

    Don't get the kids involved. They could damage the car, or someone else might damage it but your kids get the blame/they saw kids playing around it, or worse yet kids/bikes/cars/roads don't mix/dangerous.

    I like the 'making it look like some tried to knock it off' idea, & calling the council.

    Don't call the police. It's not their issue and it wastes their time. Call the council.

    Our neighbour's response was "we'll be selling them soon" ... Yeah right! Still there months and months later
