What Those FOREIGN ORGANIZATION License Plates Mean – In This Case, They Mean Taiwan

Wednesday, January 7th, 2015

If the United States figured Taiwan for a genuine country, this diplomat’s ride would have a light blue license plate from the Feds.

It can’t, so the next best thing is this.

As seen on Market:

So Taiwan ends up with these FOREIGN ORGANIZATION plates.

On It Goes…

An Update on CAR2GO Car Sharing in SF: The Giant FREE PARKING Logos are Gone

Tuesday, December 23rd, 2014

Read all about it. So how does this work, you see a car and then you use it to get wherever and then you park it legally and then you’re done with it? Mmm…

As seen on Fell in December 2014:

All right, I’m making this an ASSIGNMENT DESK.

So, what is CAR2GO. Why didn’t the corrupt SFMTA approve of it back in 2013, when it greenlighted a bunch of other transportation schemes? What happened to the FREE PARKING words on the sides of the cars? (One imagines that could be a touchy issue for those in the City Attorney’s Office.) What’s the status of it now in the 415?

So many questions!

Day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year:

I’m surprised the owner of this gas electric hybrid has managed to maintain this parking lifestyle for so long.

(If you tried this in Pac Heights, offended dog walkers would have DPT ticket you into submission, tout de suite.)

Ghost Car, Arguello – Classic First-Generation Malibu – Rolling In My Six-Four

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

[UPDATE: Reference to the hundrum Richmond District omitted. And somehow, I accidentally changed my Canon’s Mode switch to Manual, which I didn’t think was possible, you know, due to the safety. With my 1D, this would be impossible, but with a 5D, it’s possible, obvs to me now. Anyway, this photo was way overexposed. It was all … foggy.]

Or is it a ’65? I can’t tell.

Nevertheless, this ride was an arresting sight, creepin’ down Geary turning towards¬†Arguello in the¬†Richmond District:

All this guy needs is 16 switches, and hollow-points for the snitches.

And maybe some D’s.
