If Paris Hilton had a drivers license, she’d drive the way the owner of this, this vehicle drives, prolly.

Seen in the Upper Fillmore, natch:

Hey CA 6ZZM644! If you’re ever in the Financh during working hours, shoot me a note and then I’ll cheerfully ride shotgun with you for a bit, at no charge, you know, to teach you how to fucking drive.

Cheerfully.

I Am Become White Trash, the Destroyer of Worlds: Mercedes Benz Gelandewagen G55 AMG Cabriolet

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

[Apparently, these things will remain in production after all. I had thought the line shut down in the summer of 2011. This model was supposed to die in 2006, 2010, and 2011, but it still keeps chugging along...]

Achtung, baby!

Kind of looks like a VW Thing, non?

They’re out of production now, but these G rigs went for $125K+ back in the day, and that was before the convertible “option.”

Parallel Parking in the Middle of Valencia – Your Right as a San Franciscan

Monday, June 1st, 2009

Valencia Street in the Mission used to have two lanes in both directions, but now it has Category II bike lanes and a center lane that’s supposed to be used for turns. The problem is that drivers view the turning lane as a 13-foot-wide, mile-and-half-long parking lot.

As here, where the driver of this black $100,000 Mercedes Benz Geländewagen is backing up the northbound lane to claim the prize he just passed by. Was the MUNI bus delayed by this maneuver of the G-Wagon? A little, but Parking Wherever The Hell You Want is Your Right as a San Franciscan, right?
