First I saw this:

And now I see this:

This is one way to sell transit, certainly, but I don’t think our local urbanists would approve…

FLASHBACK: Recalling When Hipsters of the Lower Haight Tried to Own and Operate an AMC Pacer for a Laugh or Two

Thursday, February 11th, 2016

This was the scene on Haight Street back in the aughts (and back when CWNevius still lived in the East Bay, where he belongs and where he’d be happier) – four urban youts inside of one AMC Pacer:

This thing was advertised as the “first wide small car,” and maybe it was. (Back in the day, certainly, it was wide enough for the Sandwich King.)

(Perhaps Google should have used these cars to carry their Street View sensors around? Compared to brand-new, bright red hybrid Priuseses, a fleet of old Pacers would have attracted less attention from John Law.)

But look, Gentle Reader, they loved Pacers in France, for some reason:

All right, let’s say au revoir to les hipsters de Haight, seen after they’d navigated through the already failed Octavia Boulevard “urbanist”/urbonaut experiment/ongoing fiasco:

Stay safe in your overweight, underpowered, low-MPG, two-ton fishbowl!

Here you go, start here.

And now check it out:

Is that a legal space? Nope.

Sorry.

Now let’s talk window tinting for the driver and front passenger windows.

Just raising the issue.

Looks pretty dark to me.

OTOH, he _did_ just buy naming rights at SFGH – so those are your pros and cons…

Model S Teslas Vying for the Same Parking Space at the Western Addition Popeye’s – What Do You Call This Place – NoPA, DivCo – Is It So Special?

Tuesday, December 15th, 2015

IDK, man.

IMG_9104 copy

I don’t think NoPA is so special.

Sorry.

Hey look, your precious Northeast of Panhandle Area is actually in the Western Addition – here’s a map from just part of part of the WA:

Sorry.

And don’t ever search your house’s property records for the term “Western Addition,” ’cause you’ll be disappointed to find that term in there, over and over.

Sorry.

But no no, area millionaire homeowners association – please go on and on about your petty concerns. Tell EVERYBODY.

Yay!
