That's what I did.
In the driveway with a set of torches.
The first one was IN MILITARY HOUSING.
I just waited for a 3 day weekend when none of the housing admin types would be around and went for it.
I was rather surprised none of the neighbors called the Base Police or Fire Department but none did.
- Must have been used to my antics by then.
I'd just finished stripping a boat down to bare metal and repainting it in the driveway.
I owned the house the second time around.
Did about 2/3 of it with a recip saw and the rest with torches.
I needed a small dumpster to get rid of some debris from remolding so I just got a bigger one and threw the car away too.
If the door at the back of the dumpster was about 8" wider I'd have just shoved the whole car in.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.
