Le Twizy seen on Page – from Spain with love:
Yes, there’s room for two:
I know what you’re thinking – you’re thinking, “Will It Drift?”
Bon courage, Twizy. Bienvenue a San Francisco!
Why is It That the 99% Pays the CA DMV for Auto Registration But the 1% Ferrari Lambo Crowd Doesn’t?Monday, June 18th, 2012
Here’s the 99% in Lane 2 – no apparent problems here:

And here’s what’s in Lane 1 a few miles down the very same freeway – it’s YAFWR (Yet Another Ferraro Without Registration):
Do you know why the richers of California tend to go without license plates on their Ferrari and Lamborghini and whatnot? Well, it’s because of the cost.
Buying a Ferraro like this one to tool around on the weekends for a little while will run you $20-something thousand in “use tax” whether you drive it a little or a lot. So what you’ll need to do is to make some arrangement with your cheesy exoticar dealer – if you think about it for a while, you’ll figure something out.*
And the Tax Man prolly won’t catch you.
So that’s why the 99% pays the CA DMV for auto registration and the 1% Ferrari / Lambo crowd does not.
*Oh, it’s a race car, not a regular car. Oh, as soon as I bought it I took it to, let’s see here, Nevada? Yeah, Nevada. As a 1%-er, I live in the crappy, windblown, high desert of Nevada instead of gorgeous California – do you buy that? Oh, that was a repositioning trip, and, you know, I hated it. I don’t actually like the job of ferrying Ferrari about, it’s such a burden. Oh, it’s…
Remember Gurbaksh “G” Chahal, San Francisco’s Own “Secret Millionaire?” Well, Now He’s Crying Over His Busted FerrariFriday, July 29th, 2011
(Remember when he proudly pointed out his flat-panel TV (“BAM!”) and “great mirror?” And the zebra pelt on the kitchen floor?*)
But now, there’s sadness in his life owing to his slightly older-model Ferrari getting cracked up while in the custody of his Ferrari dealership. Of course, the dealership has offered to fix it up and/or offered to let him buy a newer, unused Ferrari at a higher price, but that’s not good enough for G.

See that “why does this crap always happen to me?”
Does this make “G” the “definition of a douchelord?”

Chin up, G!
*Apparently, the people behind the Secret Millionaire show wanted to show a big delta between the lifestyle of his real-life SoMA pad vs. the Tenderloin hovel that he shacked-up in during the filming of the show. Well, some people got carried away with the made-for-TV furnishings. So that’s where the zebra pelt and chandelier came in. Ironically, you might prefer to live in that hovel on Larkin Street – it’s not that bad, right across the street from Homeland Security. Typical Americans watching had no idea that the rent on that supposedly unlivable apartment in the Tenderloin was more than their flyover country mortgage payments…
