UBER Self-Driving Car on the Streets of San Francisco – Three Views – Black Ford Fusion Hybrid Titanium with a Grey KFC Bucket Atop

Tuesday, December 13th, 2016

[UPDATE: Oh, this is a self driving car, they tell me, not a mapping car, my bad. Or maybe it is a map car, IDK. It’s not a Volvo XC90 the likes of which have just been announced as sel-driving cars.]

UBER, a company what loses lots of money, tries to play catch-up with Google, a company what makes lots of money:

How Would It Make Sense to Operate This Giant Mercedes Benz as an Uber or a Lyft?

Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Here it is picking up…

..and then heading out:

(Perhaps I’m jumping to contusions here, not seeing any ID / front license plate here.)

I’ll tell you, the use tax alone for this rig would be a killer, and then you factor in the notorious Large Mercedes Benz Depreciation Penalty, and then how are you making money?

I suppose you could make a little bit, but man, I don’t see How It Would Make Sense to Operate This Giant Mercedes Benz as an Uber or a Lyft.

An Expensive Jaguar Sedan and the Inexpensive Ford I Always Mistake It For

It’s hard to be a baller when ppl think your ride is a stripper Ford.

I’ll tell you, in my day, Jaguars looked like Jaguars.

And that was the way we liked it.

ULTIMATE PARKING MACHINE? – OMG, Viral Video: “Crazy Bay Area Driver Parking Her BMW #FAIL”

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Stanley Roberts feels that this one could still go viral – he thinks it’s Jimmy Kimmel-worthy.

I’m inclined to agree.

Wow, just wow.

What did she give him – $5, $20?

An now here’s the kicker. How to get out of the very same space?

Imagine this woman confronting the crazy-striped JFK Drive in Golden Gate Park – what would happen?

Thanks Wayne R – keep ’em coming!

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…
