GREENSBORO, N.C.- There’s an uphill battle between what’s considered junk and what some people consider a collection.

Bulent Bediz is fighting to hold on to what the City of Greensboro says is junk. An inspector tagged 46 of his vehicles on Lexington Avenue after someone complained last month they were an eyesore.

It’s against Greensboro’s city ordinance to keep a vehicle that’s not running and doesn’t have a license plate on your property. Bediz said that he bought most the vehicles last year in hopes of selling them and using the money to restore his rental home.

“It’s very difficult to go to the banks, and get financing these days — especially in my position,” Bediz said.

Bediz removed half of the non-working vehicles to a small car lot down the street that he owns. The city will inspect his property next week to see if the vehicles that are not running have been removed.
