Legacy Mustache, for the Elite of Lyft Only

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

This is how things started, back in aught-twelve – I thought it was just another hipster thing, but no, it was Lyft.

But after a little rain or a little urine from a taxi driver got on those things, well, this plan wasn’t sustainable.

It too is gone now, replace by the Latest Thing.

Ah memories:

The Glowstache
Designed by the brand creatives behind Virgin America, the Glowstache is the first Lyft icon to light up streets nationwide. Each one helps increase awareness of Lyft in your city, meaning more demand for your rides, and no chance of getting lost in a crowd. The status symbol was produced solely for top Lyft drivers. Like its three-foot ancestor, the Carstache, it’s now retired while we design the next big thing — but if you’re lucky, you might just spot one on the road.”

And here’s what John Law has to say:

5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for
use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which
they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.

I’m thinking there are reasons you’d especially want an FLP on Uber’s experimental cars, but maybe that’s just me…

It wouldn’t even occur to me to contact the popo if somebody busted out the windows of my aging Toyota, oh well.

Anyway, these duffers parked their rides near 34th and Clement, played a round, and then came back to this:
