Get a set of doors in an off colour from yours. Swap them randomly each week.

Good idea, and some extra Abandoned car stickers for the wanker's car!  put 'em all over her car.

i'd park there everyday too. i mean really.. if its that much of a bother to her, she should start parking her OWN car there to avoid you parking there. Maybe you should start leaving her cards with REALLY UGLY HORRID cars on them, and write something positive on the inside.. some little tidbit about always thinking the grass should be greener, seeing the glass half empty instead of half full.. i know theres some quote out there that would be pertinent. Take morning glories for instance.. sure, looks like a nice vine with flowers.. in reality in quite a few states.. it is a noxious weed.
Or cards with extremely pretty cars on them, don't forget to include a roll of scotch tape so she can tape them up over her windows that face your car ;)
Maybe print out some fake car awards.. "BEST OF SHOW" or "Diamond in the rough" and pretend to be all excited.. so excited you just had to share your 'joy' with anyone (including your neighbor, which is the whole point) and show her the 'award' while jumping up and down. Maybe she'll start doubting her judgement and leave well enough alone. being that she is 'snobby'.. i would try the 'car awards' first.

while it may not alleviate anything.. it would still be quite fun to do. (i also like the tinfoil idea!!)
Time to buy a Gamma Goat and then start it up.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gama_Goat    We used to drive them around sedate upscale neighborhoods once in awhile.  The two unmarked toggle switches on the dash are for the bilge pumps -- not a good idea to discover what they are for on multi-lane highways where others are coming up along side you to pass.

Wow these are all great suggestions, but these made me laugh the most.

I liked the Gamma Goat one, but you'd probably have ALL the neighbors upset the first time you fired that thing up. The random door swap was a good one too. Some of them might not go over well with local law enforcement, I'd be careful.

I'm trying not to get too personal. I think the abandoned car stickers would be prob too far. but I do love to take ShhmEagle to get muddy and let it drip dry. (Pics are coming I promise maddog). When she does make it home before me and take "her" spot, I just keep my eye out and wait for her to leave then put it back in front of her door. All the new exhaust is in and as soon as it's warm enough and dry again I'm gonna put it on. Can't wait to hear the glasspack!!!!!!!!!

The mud would be a good one & perfectly legal ( never heard of a law against getting your car dirty ). Then when it drip dries there, the next time you leave, she'd have to park in it if she wanted that spot.

I think I'll do a fender, door switch a rooney every weekend! Na but seriously I am looking for a right front fender with no damage. The current one was hit and the front of it is kinda crumpled right on the curve that wraps around towards the grill.

I've got flat black Eagle wagon body parts ( still attached to the Eagle which I hope one day to start driving ) if you want something that won't show up at night.

Strangely, black shows up as black. It's too black.
The very dark green was perfect:
  • your eyes know they're seeing something,
  • the high contrast against the silver stops you from determining what you're seeing,
  • so your mind concludes you're seeing into the car, i.e., no doors...

Oldfordman I posted a reply the other day about you offering me a black fender already attached. Don't know where it ended up so I'll post it again. I was letting you know that I'm gratefull to you for offering that. But I must refuse cause I would hate to see anything come off a perfectly good eagle that needs "some work." Whatever you do don't part anything off of it unless you NEED the funds, otherwise get that bird runnin. You will thoroughly enjoy it. The more eagles on the road or trail the better, so no one can forget the true heritage of the first 4x4 SUV. But if you have an extra fender just lyin around let me know, or if you know anybody getting rid of parts. I went to the parts for sale section and got half way thru before I got kicked off by the family, apparently I'm supposed to share the computer.LOL. It's hard to get offline when I'm on the nest. This sight is all too consuming, I think I've got an addiction here that has no cure!!!!!

Joey, eventually hope to get it painted & the chrome back to chrome ( remove flat black paint ), was just joking about this paint job I've got. Even the hubcaps are painted flat black. Still in the shop, the instructor said they should have it done by the end of next week. Problem is the kids only get a couple hours per day & a couple days per week in the shop. They have classes from 7:45 A.M. - 10:45 A.M. & again 11:15 A.M. - 1:15 P.M. In addition to the two classes, they also have two classrooms & instructors. Means they alternate days in the shop, 1 week 1st guy gets it Mon., Wed., & Fri., next week he gets it Tues. & Thurs. Word of advice, if you're in a rush, DON'T take it there.
