Legacy Mustache, for the Elite of Lyft Only

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2016

This is how things started, back in aught-twelve – I thought it was just another hipster thing, but no, it was Lyft.

But after a little rain or a little urine from a taxi driver got on those things, well, this plan wasn’t sustainable.

This glowstache worked out much better:

It too is gone now, replace by the Latest Thing.

Ah memories:

The Glowstache
Designed by the brand creatives behind Virgin America, the Glowstache is the first Lyft icon to light up streets nationwide. Each one helps increase awareness of Lyft in your city, meaning more demand for your rides, and no chance of getting lost in a crowd. The status symbol was produced solely for top Lyft drivers. Like its three-foot ancestor, the Carstache, it’s now retired while we design the next big thing — but if you’re lucky, you might just spot one on the road.”

The Bravest UBER / LYFT Driver in Frisco: “LA LAKR”

Thursday, November 17th, 2016

That could hurt you on the star rating is what I’m saying…

VIPUBER: Did the CA DMV Give This Uber Bro a Metal Tab for His License Plate to Class Up This Black Nissan?

Friday, November 4th, 2016

To clarify:

Now here’s what the gov’mint has to say on the topic:

So you might think that Travis talks out of his asphalt or that he really spreads a lot of the bituminous around or that UBER is garbage operation, but aside from that, help me out here Gentle Reader – can just anybody get a bad-ass looking metal tab from our DMV?

I gots to know.

“SF N8TVE” Parks in the Bus Stop, Of Course

Friday, October 7th, 2016

Sort of half in and half out, and then Bro got stuck there for a minute or so.

I’d be careful about doing that behind a bus, since some of them have illegal parking cameras these days – you find out about that ten days later when you get a reminder notice in the mail…

I wonder who regulates claims of Frisco Nativity – like who are the birthers of the 415?

In Tejas, they have “self-policing,” which is really no policing at all.

All right, I’m going to apply for my own nativity license plate: BRN NRAZD. Or maybe FRSCO BRN. (Hope no birthers find out.) Yay for me!

FLASHBACK: “My Other Car Is A Hodor” – This Meme was the Harambe of 2014 – DMV Plate “[HAND] OF KNG”

Monday, October 3rd, 2016

Look at the registration – this car is still on the road:

And now harambe too is losing its luster as a meme.

Wonder what our next great meme will be…

Honda Driver is More Native than You: “I NATIVE” – OIOW, U FORINR?

“Born and raised,” you see?

Three Things What are New the Past Decade in Frisco: Corporate Intercity Buses, Paper License Plate Abuse, and Private Taxicabs

Wednesday, August 10th, 2016

7J7C0017 copy

1. Back in aught-seven was when I first heard of corporate buses taking workers to other cities. (Or maybe it was aught-six, I forget.) Of course we had Frisco institutions shuttling workers around, owing to our horrible, horribly corrupt SFMTA / MUNI mess, but people riding the freeways for hours a day, well this was new. Anyway, in the left corner of this shot you can see the distinctive Van Hool kink at the rear window.

2. That Porsche in the middle has its license plates at home. Back a decade ago, drivers didn’t go around for months and years without plates, but these days, they do, oh well.

3. And on the right, an Uber instead of a regular taxicab.

Why Do So Many ZIPCAR Rental Cars have Out-of-State License Plates?

Friday, July 29th, 2016

My first impulse, upon seeing this rental car in my ‘hood, was to exclaim:

‘Sup Arizona? How you likin’ the rain, girl?

My second impulse was to ask, again, “What’s up with all the ‘Zona plates, Avis?”

Is it so much easier to register your ride in Arizona? IDK

Do regular Californians have the right to run Arizona plates in Frisco for week after week, month after month? Hell no.

Who will investigate this Watergate?

Troubled ICON Aircraft Company Sends a Seaplane to Buzz Frisco – But Layoffs Up in Vacaville – A T-Tailed Doctor Killer?

Tuesday, July 12th, 2016

Paying off on the headline:

1. An Icon A5 seaplane as seen yesterday from the Embarcadero, presumably on yet another media joyride. Kind of sounded like an old Subaru.

7J7C8713 copy

2. This year’s big news from ICON, which has an actual aircraft factory up in Vaca [cow] ville [town].

3. And I just don’t know about the kind of person who’d be attracted to flying these planes. I’ll tell you, waybackwhen, the “fork-tailed doctor killer” certainly looked bad-ass, but it appealed to people who prolly shouldn’t have been flying, oh well. Will Icon eventually sell a bunch of planes to people who, similarly, aren’t really / shouldn’t be pilots? IDK.

Not saying it’s not fun to fly about in a tiny seaplane…
