The Goats of Golden Gate Park

Tuesday, December 5th, 2017

You know, your more urban part of GGP, and of course this is a Pontiac, a kind of Tempest, aka Gran Turismo Omologato, aka Grand Tempest Option. And as Wiki recalls for us, “it had become known in the youth market as the ‘goat.'”

As seen through the giant trees of the Panhandle:

But if you want to see a real goat in GGP, well just look the other direction, maybe you’ll see more evidence of the goats as pets movement:

This shot is from @JKBartleby, who sez:

“What should we do about the Vaillancourt Fountain?”

“Clean it?”

“Nah.”

“Run water through it again?”

Is sewer runoff cheaper than water?”

(Mmmm, wonder what it smelled like.)

And the next day or so things went blue blue blue.

And now the iceman season cometh, so the water’s gone again, until January 2018 at the earliest.

Anyway, we’ll have to wait to see which color RPD chooses to dye this water next year…

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
