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.

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?

So many questions!
[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.]

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.
Play us out, Dr. Dre.
