Nothing immediately obvious:

There’s this note from SFGov…

But you know, looks normal:

Myself, I don’t know why we have euc trees in the Panhandle.

Maybe one of them will kill me someday.

(Avenge my death. Avenge me, you know, if you feel like it.)

An Aging Mercedes that Smells Like French Fries – Must be a Veggie Burner

Perhaps that would explain the stuff on the rear, but I’m no expert:

Faded Glory: 42 Years of Life Have Taken a Toll on This Mercedes Benz in The Richmond – $3000 for Starters

Friday, September 1st, 2017

This ride came with five stars – one above the radiator as ornamentation for the hood (echoing the time when a three-pointed star was part of the cap for the radiator) and four on the standard-issue dog dish hubcaps. Three are gone now, long gone. Oh well, not all used cars can be perfect

Mercedes Driver Commits a Parallel Parking Foul, Whether or Not This is Legal

Tuesday, August 8th, 2017

The Man allows you a foot and a half spacing from your tires to the curb, but you can do better than that, right? Check out this Mercedes SUV:

How wide is this newspaper? IDK, but man is this a lousy parking job.

IMO, 17 inches is far from acceptable, even though it’s legal.

Lots of room for improvement here on Fell Street:

If you can’t handle this simple task, maybe you shouldn’t be driving.

Just saying.

The Cleanest 1983 Mercedes Benz W123 240D You’ll Ever See – 67 Horsepower Never Looked So Good

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

I’m not suggesting that this beast runs clean, oh no. Its NOx emissions must be through the roof.

But look, it has its original hood ornament star. And four dog dish hubcaps painted to match

Is This UBER Filming an S-Class Mercedes-Benz Driving About Frisco’s Financh?

Friday, December 9th, 2016

And when I say UBER, I mean some people hired by UBER for some marketing effort.

And when I say filming, I mean videoing, or recording, or whathaveyou, as it’s prolly a digital camera what Bro was pointing out of the back of the black SUV, as seen on California in the 94104.

Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Uber Has Apparently Ordered $10 Billion Worth of Mercedes S-Class Sedans. That’s a lot of expensive luxury cars for an app dedicated to undercutting local taxi prices.

Perhaps there’s a connection here, IDK.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me 100,000 self-driving Mercedes Benzes?

The Quiet Scene After a Hit and Run on Clement?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2016

One assumes. The Mercedes driver seemed combobulated enough, but she was satisfied to sit there for minutes and minutes. (This would not have been my reaction.)

One attempts to offer assistance, but then one just moves on with one’s day as the snap crackle and pop, pop, pop of traffic driving over Mercedes plastic fades away…

Even Rich Mercedes Benz Owners in Pricey Alamo Square Can’t Take It Anymore: “NOTHING LEFT IN CAR”

No, not the newest Mercedes, but anyway:

Why is San Francisco the car break-in capital of the world?

IDK.

But we’re famous for it…

San Francisco Story: You Can Afford a Mercedes Benz But Not a Parking Space for It – So You Park on the Front “Lawn”

Wednesday, March 30th, 2016

There used to be grass here, ‘neath this Benz, but it’s gone.

Long gone.

So now all you need to do is twist 90 degrees and you’re parked:

A Tale of Two Pedestrians: WHO’LL BE THE NEXT JOGGER TO GO FROM OAK & MASONIC DIRECT TO SFGH?

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Well, I suppose it’s three peds, actually. Now let’s see how they do:

See that?

The two peds on the left act properly and the jogger ped does not.

As per usual…

There’s room for improvement at this intersection, SFGov/SFMTA.

Just saying.
