“Barry Bonds” Catching Flies in the Presidio

Monday, November 10th, 2014

If you drive around long enough mouth agape in your look-at-me-I’m-Barry-Bonds-except-I’m-not-but-now-that-you’ve-mentioned-it-let-me-tell-you-about-x Audi* convertible, I’m sure that you’re going to get your fair share of flies squirming about your pie-hole.

It’s a lose-lose situation for both you and the fly. Hey, it’s Jersey Shore, West Coast. YOLO, Dude:

(Hey, did Barry Bonds get a reputation rehab? News to me.)

In aggravation, this garish vehicle has no front license plate. Tsk tsk.

In mitigation, it appeared to be driven within the realm of reason, which is surprising considering it’s an exoticar in the 415.

Perhaps Dude will maintain that Barry Bonds lettering on the side of his ride until the next Giants Victory Parade, sure to come around the end of October 2016…

*So you buy and Audi but you didn’t actually want an Audi, so you black out the famous rings and also the trademark horse collar grill so people can’t tell it’s an Audi? OK fine. One assumes the Giants objected, or maybe Audi objected in some sort of appearance of a cross-license kind of deal?  

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:

Postcard from Post Street, Japantown: A Half-Century-Old Nissan / Datsun Fairlady Convertible, AKA “Datsun Sports”

Friday, July 18th, 2014

Japantown has more than its fair share of old Japanese-made cars, it seems, with the rear view mirrors mounted way up front, Japanese-style:

David Bellona’s Street Photo Wins the Internet So Far for 2014: “SF HUNGRY, MARIN DRUNK”

Friday, January 10th, 2014

[UPDATE: The car’s name is REDACTED. REDACTED’s owner is REDACTED  of the city of  REDACTED, CA. REDACTED is the publisher of REDACTED, per REDACTED.

Here’s what REDACTED says about REDACTED’s “DRUNK” license plate:

“I realize many people feel this says bad things about me. I feel that says bad things about them”

OK then.]

[UPDATE II: Alleged super-private personal information that was not actually super-private personal information but, in fact, was useful to prove to skeptical MSM-types that people can actually have a personalized license plate what spells out “DRUNK,” REDACTED. Boy, aren’t we touchy touchy! Awfully touchy for somebody having that on his license plate in fucking Marin, the world capital of drunk drivers. I guarantee that every cop that sees your plate does a double-take. And I thought you had posted a little ditty about your plate (because you had). But if you want to trade your exciting high-profile lifestyle ride for my boring, unnamed and aging Land Cruiser, well, let’s do it, if it would help you out if your shame spiral.  In any event, REDACTED.  (In mitigation, REDACTED is NOT the publisher of Gannett Co Inc’s The Bold Italic.)]

This shot from Mark DeVito has got it all.

Indeed, this is no place for a convertible!

Let’s hope that this driver doesn’t wind up on the Marin County Sheriff’s Public Booking Log any more than the average Marinite driver…
