    i doubt i'm the only one here who has been in this type of situation. hopefully someone found a decent solution they'll share. my k5 has been down for a while. i always parked it in the street, so it wouldn't block in my dd. and i've been waiting for a new job before i drop the money on an engine. now i have the job, but the city (north richland hillls, tx, several miles north of fort worth) won't let me park in the street anymore, and i shoved it into the driveway, so i now have to pull my c1500 around it, or get the k5 towed. even if i had the engine in hand, today, i'd be stuck like this for weeks, considering the limited amount of time i have to work on the install. so, i was wondering if there are any secure, inexpensive storage places to move it. uhaul is sort of pricey. i've only had the job for 2 days, so i'm still not feeling loose with the funds. sorry if this post seems a little incoherrent. i'm really worn out right now. thanks

    We use a self storage place with an outside yard. costs me about $30 a month to keep a vehicle there...

    For low-dollar storage you could always do outdoor storage at one of those places that mainly do boat and RV storage, but inside a fenced compound. A lot of them are covered, so at least you'd get hail protection in that case. Just look in the yellow pages under self-storage, rv storage, that kind of thing.
