The Goldest Lamborghini in Town – Bienvenidos a Miami! – Let’s Talk License Plate Violations

Tuesday, August 5th, 2014

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!

Is the Avis Subsidiary “Zipcar” Operating in San Francisco Using Vehicles with Arizona License Plates? Take a Look

Monday, July 21st, 2014

Man, I’d hate to be renting a car by the hour whilst driving from Arizona to the Bay Area.

Anyway, as seen in the 94117:

Anything to save a buck, huh Zipcar?

IDK, maybe this bus is new in town, or just passing through, but it didn’t look that way…

San Francisco’s Most Famous Car of 2014: A “Mirror-Finish Aston Martin Rapide, Because Eff You, That’s Why”

Wednesday, June 11th, 2014

[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…

Proud UC Berkeley Grad Gets All Honky and Then Skids Around a Lumbering Truck – A Kind of Audi-Induced Road Rage

Wednesday, May 7th, 2014

Dude’s coming down Ashbury and he can see from the countdown timer that he’s at risk of missing the green due to a slow-moving commercial vehicle making the same turn onto Oak.

So Dude honks his Audi’s horn, pulls into the opposite lane and then goes around the truck with wheels a-chirping.

All this ado allowed the Audi driver to make the green at Masonic and then at Fell, so maybe he saved a minute-something in time.

(Do bad drivers just pick Audis or do Audis make people bad drivers? I believe it’s mostly the former but don’t underestimate the latter.)

Anyway, if the reason why the truck was going slow had been a late-starting ped heading north in the crosswalk, then blammo, with the ped being at fault for entering a crosswalk under a flashing DON’T WALK and the Audi pilot being even more at fault for turning one lane into two and turning the truck into a blind corner.

Not too far away from here, a world-famous drunk driver with alcohol in her system started walking across Fell too late and got killed by a car going around a slower vehicle, which of course, was waiting for the ped to cross. That’s a similar situation, IMO.

There you have it, look at me, I have an Audi, look at me, I went to UC, look at me, zoom zoom.
