Jumping up and down in celebration, near CCSF
Uh, Go Rams?
Florida plates, BTW.
Or should I say, Florida plate, as this gold exoticar doesn’t have a front license plate, which is a no-no in The Golden State.
And of course, you’ve got less than three weeks after moving to California to deal with the California DMV, but I’ll tell you, most Lambos you see in SF aren’t properly registered with CA DMV.
Anyway, this car reminded of Dennis Rodman’s old ride, one that’s being used as a daily driver by a CCSF student.
Stay gold, Lambo owner. Bienvenidos a 415 / 628 / 650!
[UPDATE: Word on the street is that the driver lives in The Avenues, where he has a rep for driving too fast out there. Word on the street is that the driver has a "neckbeard."]
I seen this $200k+ Aston Martin Rapide all over town – I seen it I seen it! In the Financh, the SoMA, the Fillmore, pretty much all over the 1/8th of a pie slice that is northeastern SF.
(This ride has now officially stolen the thunder of that Kandy-Kolored Gold-Flake Streamline Baby Lambo used as a daily driver(!) by a CCSF junior college student.)
So, why the mirror finish, dahling? Well, per Arlen of Flickr, “because fuck you, that’s why.”
And, has this garish Aston been registered in California yet? Well, maybe, but if it has a CA license plate, it’s certainly not mounted on the back where it should be, and that’s odd, because it’s been in town for a while, oh well.
Who can solve this mystery?
As seen being driven, poorly, in the Upper Fillmore area…

SF City College Volunteers Tackle $1 Billion Project
San Francisco City College Chancellor, Students, Classified Employees And Faculty Take On The Problems Identified By The Community College Accreditation Commission
(SAN FRANCISCO, CA)— Over 100 community members, classified employees, students, faculty and administrators are coming together to take concrete action to address identified problems at the college. Together, they are looking at the community college accreditation commission’s list of over 300 items that need to be fixed to maintain accreditation. On the list is one billion dollars’ worth of deferred maintenance. The alliance, known as “We Are CCSF”, will take on some hard labor of pulling weeds, recycling, composting, window washing and other activities on Saturday, Nov. 2, at 10 AM.
“We need to do everything in our collective power to ensure that City College stays open and accredited for current and future generations of students”, says Jill Kersey a classified employee at SF City College and a member of SEIU Local 1021. “This is an all-hands-on-deck moment in the history of our college and our city. Together, we can do what must be done to help repair, rebuild, and restore our college.”

For the Tokyo hipter inside of you…
CCSF student Gloria Dean has a question for the SFMTAMUNIDPTSFBC:
“I would like to know the reasons why the Muni constantly stops trains on the T-Line at 23rd Street as if the rest of Third Street doesn’t exist.
“To see elderly women, men and children waiting over an hour for a train to get home is some of the worse treatment of citizens I’ve ever seen from a transportation system. I’ve traveled extensively all over the country as well as the world and I’ve only lived in this area for one year. However, this is obviously a classic combination of classism and racism being displayed, and it is truly a SHAME!
“I’ve decided to take my car out of the parking garage and drive. I refuse to be treated as a second class citizen. I deserve more and so do all the residents of Bayview. Last check, San Francisco doesn’t end at 23rd Street.”
Well I know the answer – it has to do with the district election system for the Board of Supervisors, and also the SFMTA’s general incompetence.
Now the Supervisor for our Bayview Hunters Point area asked about this sitch and the answer was that the T-Third zipped along at a speedy 9 MPH or something, so a T-Third Express wasn’t really needed.
Hey, here’s a jobs program. Why not tear out the T-Third and bring back the buses? Just asking. I mean the T-Third takes up a lot of space, right? Why doesn’t MUNI use it more?
Now speaking of the N Judah Express, here it is, in action, or lack thereof:

Is that four buses sitting around on Sansome Street during rush hour? The drivers are just starting work and it’s time for a 40 minute lunch break? All right.
And here’s another on Bush, just idling away.
Actually, even when the N Judah Express band-aid operation is operational during our rush hours, the buses are totally empty, no passengers, most of the time.
