Market Street, inbound:
So Bro just stops his Humvee on Market and gets situated for a few good minutes and then Luxe Dude drives it away?
Is this legal?
Look, it’s Twizy! In red these days:
From Gunma, Japan comes this Toyota 86 Scion FR-S, which stands for Front-engined, Rear-drive, sport.
Upon further review, I’m thinking this is just a private auto.
No matter, look for it here, in Japantown East, in a few short weeks:

San Francisco’s Japantown
The mission of the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival is to educate the public about the health benefits and various uses of soy and tofu. In adhering to these goals, the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival — an annual fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation — strives to be a vehicle for community-building and leadership development while adhering to the Foundation’s mission of keeping the community connected, informed and empowered.
This exciting culinary and cultural event showcases soy and tofu vendors, provides an educational forum on the various uses and benefits of soy and tofu, offers live music and cultural entertainment, interactive games and tofu eating contests, and culminates with the Soy and Tofu Dessert Competition.
Now in its sixth year, the Northern California Soy and Tofu Festival has grown progressively since its inception with 3,500 attendees in 2011 to more than 20,000 in 2015. One of San Francisco Japantown’s largest festivals, the popular culinary and cultural event serves as the main fundraiser for the Nichi Bei Foundation, and is held annually on the first Saturday in June.
Proceeds from the Festival help to publish the first nonprofit ethnic community newspaper of its kind in the country, the Nichi Bei Weekly.
But now let’s check out the ritzy part of our 94115. Here’s five right here:
And right next door, with the roof of the Land Rover from above in the lower right corner. (And here I thought all Ferrari(s) are red.)
So that’s seven black luxury cars all bunched up parked outside on Jackson.
And what’s inside the garages? At least seven more black cars, obvs.
Prove me wrong!
He almost made it to the end of the block at this point, yet his exhaust still hangs in the air, visible:
Don’t let blow-by happen to you…
Frisco, on a dreaded sunny day
I suppose this topic is too commercial, literally, for Reddit, but I’ll try.
Where is this place? SoMA, right? I know not.
Here it is, Audi – The Chase:
(Obviously, the tunnel itself isn’t in the 415.)
I’ll tell you, I thought this was a trailer at first, but no, it’s just an Audi ad. (The tone and the music are all wrong for a Major Motion Picture, even one Sponsored By Audi. Oh also, there are too many Audis in this Audi ad.)
Anyway, I should know where this is, but I don’t.
Here you go, the official NHTSA website:
But what got me there was this new AirBagRecall.Org (aka AirBagRecall.Com) site from Takata (and what got me there was an ad on the NYT website).
And all that led to Toyota.com/recall, which prolly wasn’t a bad place to check anyway.
I now see that the MSM covered this issue about three days ago, but I missed all that.
What got to me was this:
And when I saw it I thought, “No, skyscraper ad. My aging inflator is just fine, probably”
And it is IRL, AFAIK after checking.
But the above urgently-phrased overstatement got my attention, so I suppose the lesson here is ADVERTISING WORKS, at least sometimes…
