Late model white Lincoln with the license plate # TKF-156
by Kathleen Malcom on March 13th, 2012

I was wondering if anyone knew something about the late model white Lincoln with the license plate # TKF-156. Over the last few months it has been parked for several days at various locations and then it will move, but it always stays in the hood, though not near a home. It's been parked at Berkman & Camacho, then on the Lake Park street, and now it's at Berkman & Antone. One of the registrations on it expired 3-11. Does this car belong to a resident? It's getting kind of creepy because everytime I'm out on a walk it's staring at me from a new location!

It has to belong to a resident. They care enough about appearances to move it regularly up and down Berkman, sometimes on Simond, but almost never directly in front of homes. I don't see what the problem is. It gives the neighborhood character.

Also, I don't think 'late model' is the term you're looking for. Unless you mean something like 'late for dinner because my car broke down.'

I think it's funny no one blogged about this earlier. I figure most people in mueller have seen this car, and like myself, wonder who the owner is. Its obvious the car is in working condition since a phantom being mysteriously moves from place to place within Mueller. Sure the car may belong to a resident, but it seems quite strange someone would go through the effort to park a car in different places every few days. If I had a vehicle of nostalgia, sentiment, or whatever, I would feel obliged to find a place for it other than a public street where it could be vandalized or towed. Not the greatest sight around the neighborhood ( but neither is all the construction) and yes does have that "creepish" quality, but if it was a real problem I assume it would have been towed already. Not sure about giving the neighborhood "character" but I guess that's just goes with the whole "Keep Austin Weird" thing. :)

Yeah, who knows. They might already have two cars and that's their late mother's car that they just aren't sure what to do with (or debating with siblings about the disposition), or a thousand different things.

Living northeast of campus (those condos between St. David's and Dean Keeton), then down in Travis Heights, you'll be amazed on what is on some of those streets! :-)

Be thankful that whomever moves it around. There was a car outside of my condo by St. David's under a tree that didn't move for a year. The registration and inspection were valid and there were no signs of damage (what apparently is how the city determines if something on a public street needs to move). Since it was under a tree, it was under an inch of pollen, sap, leaves, etc. Looked more like a really big pile of leaves than a car!

Maybe it's one of those APD decoy cars. I saw a guy unlock it when it was at Camacho & Berkman, when new houses were going up, but he didn't move it that time. Since that time a few months ago, it has occupied several spots, including a couple near the lake.

The car belongs to a Mueller resident. I think his name is Dan. He is very nice and respectful and I'm sure he would be open to addressing any concerns the neighborhood may have. It is a cool car :-). Cheers!

If you think this car is so cool, perhaps you would volunteer to have it parked in front of your home. At least the owner is considerate enough not to park it in front of other people's homes. But why don't they park it in front of their own home? I'm sure it's because they realize it is an eyesore. I could understand if it were a temporary situation, but having gone on for so long, it's just time for the owner to sell the car, or make room for it in their garage -- that's what garages are for.

Coolness is absolutely in the eye of the beholder. I have no problem with the Lincoln - maybe we could set up a lottery as to where it will be parked next. I do have a problem with lots of people in this neighborhood who signed the covenant rules saying that they would park their cars in the garage - and who for whatever reason are not doing that. Furthermore, I generally have a problem with Beemers and Mercedes - I find them socially offensive - so please go park them out of my sight!!! Yeah! We can start another thoughtful strand....

I agree lasp4448. I am getting really tired of people complaining about certain cars being parked where they are and for how long. Do you realize you are talking about someone's car (rudely!!) that is parked on a PUBLIC street?

Why single one car out? Why aren't you online complaining about ALL the cars that are regularly parked on the street? (Some streets are REALLY bad...you know who you are.) All cars are eyesores, and really, (since people always seem to complain only about the "eyesores") it makes the most sense for those with really expensive cars to park in their garage as those will suffer the most monetary loss should something happen to them. And since you find it so awful Henry, maybe you could volunteer to buy this person a new car that you would find more appealing.

I fail to understand why folks get upset when it is pointed out that people aren't following the rules they agreed to when they moved into the neighborhood. It's not just the white Lincoln parked for over 72 hours, but others as well. The HOA doesn't enforce this, so it's only natural that residents are going to voice their concerns.
