A man bought two 'bangers' and dumped them on the side of the road to protest against vandals. Watch here:
The motorist abandoned the cars on Willersley Road in Billesley, Birmingham in the exact spot where his car was scratched.
He believed his motor was targeted because of where it was parked, so he took it upon himself to acquire two Peugeot 207s and dump them in the same spot about half a year ago - to prove that he wouldn't be bullied into parking elsewhere.
A note left in the window of one of the car's read: "This car was parked here for six months in protest because some nasty individuals scratched my nice car while it was parked in this exact same spot.
"I am moving these cars soon.
"These bangers were dumped here to educate the small-minded persons who have vandalised my car that I will not be bullied into parking elsewhere.
"You or I do not own this spot it belongs to the council and anyone can park here."
Local residents said there had been ongoing rows between neighbours about parking and people using a nearby gym taking up spaces on the road.
The residential street has no double yellow lines or parking signs, meaning any vehicle can park on the side of the road.
One woman, who did not wish to be named, said: "I don't know who owns the car but I know there's been a problem with parking around here for some time.
"The gym opposite only has a few parking spaces so sometimes people park in the road and take up spaces that residents usually use.
"But that leads to residents parking in each others spaces and causing a bit of aggro between them. It's pathetic really, nobody owns the right to park on the road.
"People act as if that public land is theirs."
Another neighbour, who also didn't want to be identified, added: "Whoever he is, fair play to the man. That's one clever way to reserve your parking space.
"You get some stubborn people around here when it comes to parking. People get very protective over their spaces, or what they claim to be their spaces.
"He has obviously done it to teach them a lesson and who can blame him? Those yobs wont touch that car now, its a wreck.
"There was another car there for ages as well, so he really was trying to get his own back, but that seems to have gone now."
