As seen on Halleck Alley in the heart of the 94111 – note ogler taking a snap while gushing about this 100% fake 1928 Mercedes Benz SSK replicar:

Now, if I had gotten taken down by Jim Cox over at the Socketsite in this fashion, well, I’d have left town vowing to never come back.

Anywho, this ride is not a “Refurbished 1936 Mercedes Excalibur,” just saying.

*I think he was the one who added the garages to the front – at least that’s what the nanny told me back in the day.

See?

Now, a scrappy kid called Nicolas Kim Coppola (aka Nic Cage) took a different approach back 15 years ago. Check out his tacked on garage monstrosity at 1945 Franklin.

In conclusion, rich people in San Francisco just loooooooooove car garages – they just can’t get enough of them.
