Were You Ever in NAM, Man? – IDTS – Well, I was in NAM, Man

Friday, December 15th, 2017

That’s what this Mercedes seems to be saying:

Spotted in its natural habitat, near Cal-Mart, right next a Porsche 911 convertible, deep inside Cotillion Country…

Uh oh, flashback:

We would circle and we’d circle and we’d circle
To stop and consider and centered on the pavement
Stacked up all the trucks jacked up and our wheels
In slush and orange crush in pocket and all this here county
Hell, any county
It’s just like heaven here
And I was remembering and I was just in a different county and all
Then this whirlybird that I headed for I had my goggles pulled off;
I knew it all
I knew every back road and every truck stop

Or this Merc has been to Namibia, but c’mon, that’s a stretch, man.

Why No Ambulance Company on Yelp has a Lower Rating than KING-AMERICAN – And Yet, They Cruise About in Benzes – One Simple Trick

Tuesday, November 28th, 2017

Ahem.

(Oh, and don’t miss the happy fun (possible) slander hour at Secret Yelp und ze BBB either.)

Hey, shouldn’t King-American work on the basics afore buying Mercedes Benzes for their employees ala The Firm?

All right, play us out, KPIX:

ConsumerWatch: Ambulance Calls Can Hurt Your Wallet

“Nultemier also cited the high number of homeless and uninsured. “50 percent of the calls we go on we don’t get any re-imbursement for,” he said.  How does he make up for it? “The insured pay,” Nultemeier said. “The insurance companies get billed at higher rates to make up for the people that didn’t have the insurance. That’s the unfortunate truth.”

Irate-Appearing, Window-Slapping Road Biker vs. Mercedes Benz Station Wagon on 7th Avenue : You Make The Call

Monday, October 30th, 2017

Here we go, southbound uphill on 7th Ave near Lawton (or Kirkham, one of those).

Oh, Gentle Reader, I almost def. have more experience (in terms of hours, decades, miles, younameit) both riding bikes and driving cars on these Streets of San Francisco than this emo roadie, but is this such a tough sitch to call anyway? I’ll say I’m 99% sure that the Mercedes driver noticed the backup lights on that parked car and was queuing up for a chance to take over that space:

So what’s the reaction? Whatsamatta you hand gestures and a left-hand window slap:

And then, the look back, always with the look-back. (Bad car drivers do the same thing.)

7J7C1329 copy

So, where should this driver have waited? In the middle of the car lane? IDK the answer to that, but some might feel that way.

To me, well, I would have gone around the wagon on its left, I would have “taken the lane,” if only briefly.

Just saying…

Nothing immediately obvious:

There’s this note from SFGov…

But you know, looks normal:

Except for this:

And this:

From this, high above Golden Gate Park:7J7C0844 copy

Myself, I don’t know why we have euc trees in the Panhandle.

Maybe one of them will kill me someday.

(Avenge my death. Avenge me, you know, if you feel like it.)

An Aging Mercedes that Smells Like French Fries – Must be a Veggie Burner

Perhaps that would explain the stuff on the rear, but I’m no expert:

Faded Glory: 42 Years of Life Have Taken a Toll on This Mercedes Benz in The Richmond – $3000 for Starters

Friday, September 1st, 2017

This ride came with five stars – one above the radiator as ornamentation for the hood (echoing the time when a three-pointed star was part of the cap for the radiator) and four on the standard-issue dog dish hubcaps. Three are gone now, long gone. Oh well, not all used cars can be perfect

The Cleanest 1983 Mercedes Benz W123 240D You’ll Ever See – 67 Horsepower Never Looked So Good

Thursday, July 27th, 2017

I’m not suggesting that this beast runs clean, oh no. Its NOx emissions must be through the roof.

But look, it has its original hood ornament star. And four dog dish hubcaps painted to match

Heckflosse! – This is What the 1950’s (or 1960’s) Looked Like – Woman Drives Past DMV in Mercedes 220S Fintail

Tuesday, April 11th, 2017

I’m thinking both the DMV and this W-111 fintail MB both are from the early 1960’s…

7J7C0180 copy

…but they might have been birthed at the the end of the 1950’s, IDK.

Anyway, as seen in 2017, and our 3-star rated DMV is still going strong, despite all those plans for hated Redevelopment. In fact, both this ride and this building outlasted the Redevelopment Commish itself, go figure. (And ask me and I’ll tell you how to pass the behind-the-wheel test, as I’ve told so many others, at Frisco’s solitary DMV. (Oh, your friend told you Daly City DMV has an easier test? Well, your friend is a LIAR!) There’s no trick to it, there’s just One Simple Trick.)
