There are at Least Two Things Wrong with This “Member CHP 11-99 Foundation” License Plate and Holder

Tuesday, March 4th, 2014

1. A while back there was a perception, at the very least, of the California Highway Patrol involving itself with corruption when luxury car owners boasted of getting out of speeding tickets owing them being members of the 11-99 Foundation. So reforms were promised, but there still are a lot of those official 11-99 foundation license plate holders out there, oh well. Anyway, it was “wrong” for the CHP to allow this foundation any color of authoritah for any length of time

2. The owner of this car doesn’t even have an official license plate holder, oh no. All we have here is a home-made LP holder along with a personalized license plate. Anybody could do this without paying thousands of dollars to any foundation. So this looks a bit wrong as well.

Or maybe the original license plate holder was stolen for quick resale on eBay, IDK.

Regardless, this whole enchilada was/is wrong

Know Your Bay Area Ferrari: It’s “NRTH BCH,” a Red Testarossa from the 80′s – Seen All Over Town in the ’90′s

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

As Rain Man used to say, “I know this car.”

I know it because I saw it illegally parked in front of a liquor store at the corner of Union and Columbus on a Friday or Saturday night all the way back in the 1990′s.

1.5 decades later, I see this rig again. How about that?

And of course, it has an expensive CHP 11-99 Foundation license plate holder, to tell peace officers not to give this particular car a ticket, no matter how cray-cray the driver drives/parks.

Ferraris look a lot better these days, is all I can say.

Anyway, welcome to the new millennium, NRTH BCH.

Word for the Day: A “Sailbag” is a Douchebag Who Comes to Town to See the Staged America’s Cup Boat Race

Friday, March 23rd, 2012

Here’s the view from the front, complete with fake Euro-style Front License Plate* and handicapped placard** allowing said sailbag the right to park wherever the Hell he wants however long he wants, for free:

And here’s the rear view what gives the game away. See? It says right there “SAIL BAG.”

And dude’s from Marin County of course.

And there’s a yacht club logo in there as well, of course.

All that’s missing is the CHP 11-99 Foundation scam license plate holder, of course, you know, to get out of those sticky situations involving the police and the CHP, you know, because you’re a Eurotrash sailbag from god damn Marin County so you drive like a bat out of Hell.

Welcome to San Francisco, you sailbag you.

And more are coming, soon enough.***

In closing, sailbag.

*Is this a legal setup in California? NO, not at all – the DMV gave you an FLP for a reason. I’m not sure if other states still require front license plates, but CA sure does. Peace officers and meter maids both will cite you for this.

**Is this a legal use of a handicap placard? Probably. But do I think that said sailbag deserves to park for free all day on the streets of San Francisco? No. What dude’s doing isn’t exactly illegal because nobody ever gets in trouble for it. You could get a handicapped placard as well, why not? If the first doctor says no, then keep on looking, there’s nothing stopping you from doctor shopping. And then eventually you will find one to sign the DMV form. And actually, the people that have handicap placards consider you a sucker for not having a placard. Hurray! Free parking for me, the sailbag! 

***Do I have objections to rigged boat races on San Francisco Bay in general? No, not at all. But instead of us paying a sailbag like Larry Ellison eight or nine figures to host his little boat party here why don’t we reverse that and have sailbag Larry Ellison**** pay us eight or nine figures for the right to host his little boat party here? See how that works? One little oversight like that makes all the difference.

****Speaking of which, here’s what it looks like when Chief Sailbag Larry Ellison hisself comes to town to nosh on the prime rib. See his Toyota LFA there parked on Van Ness?

Welcome to San Francisco, you sailbag you.

The Unregistered Lamborghinis of San Francisco County

Tuesday, April 21st, 2009

The thing about San Francisco is that it’s crawling with oddly registered or unregistered exoticars. The kind of California license plates that come on Toyotas or Hondas seem to have a hard time sticking onto the rears of Ferraris and Lamborghinis in this town.

This aging Lambo Gallardo (the Spanish word gallardo translates into “gallant,” and from Italian into “striking”) typifies the breed. No license plates, but the infamous get-out-of-jail-free C.H.P. 11-99 Foundation license plate holder, well, natch, you’ve got to have one of those, right?

And the radar detector hanging in the windshield, that’s just the icing on the cake.
