This Brand-New Chevy Bolt is Driving Itself on the Streets of San Francisco

Thursday, August 11th, 2016

As seen in the SoMA on Folsom near 12th right, by the SF Eagle, not that there’s anything wrong with that:

No, it’s not sucking the data off of your cell phone – it’s Cruise Automation, baby. And it looks like they’re on the right path, unlike, say, so-called Elon Musk and his so-called “Autopilot.”

Play us out, SLATE’s Will Oremus:

Is Autopilot a Bad Idea? Why Ford, Google, Volvo and others think Tesla is wrong about automation.

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.

Play us out, Dr. Dre.

That’s what people at my high school would have called this car, anyway…

If Steven Spielberg Drove Nancy Pelosi and a Dog on Nancy Pelosi Drive in a Classic Corvette…

I learned my lesson on this one, which didn’t actually depict the people mentioned in the headline:

If Bob Dylan and Cyndi Lauper Drove Up Haight Street in a Beat Up Corvair Convertible…

So I’ll say that Nancy Pelosi and Steven Spielberg didn’t actually go tooling about Golden Gate Park in a red Chevy convertible yesterday.

But if they ever do, it’ll look something like this:

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Here it is, the amazingly-expensive 2014 Cadillac XLR, for just(!) $75999:

(Note absurdly-large 20-inch wheels, you know, for “luxury.”)

Sometimes I just don’t know…
