How to Spend $3200 an Hour Above Frisco: Ride Along in this WWII-Era TF-51D Mustang Called “Toulouse Nuts”

Get it – Two Loose Nuts?

As seen over our Presidio / Richmond District just yesterday:

This was a WINGS OF FREEDOM FLIGHT EXPERIENCE from the Collings Foundation.

This was the flight path:

Check the promotional video of a similar Mustang from the Collings Foundation – this could be you:

And here’s the other Mustang I’ve seen over town lately:

As seen from Ocean Beach. (I don’t know anything about this airplane.)

All right, that’s your 415 Mustang Update for 2017…

An Uber / Lyft Prius Hits a Pedestrian and Somehow Winds Up on the Shoulder of Inbound I-80 Near Pinole? – And Is This a Private Investigator?

Monday, April 3rd, 2017

As seen Friday afternoon, a few klicks southwest of Pinole:

The Prius on the left has UBER and Lyft trade dress. It appears to have hit somebody at speed.

The very similar Toyota Prius Hybrid on the right could be a fellow TNC driver, or an accident investigator the kind of which taxi companies send to accident scenes sometimes.

What happened here is a mystery to me.

Troubled Anthony Levandowski’s PRIBOT Prius, Last Seen Banged Up in the Western Addition Six Years Ago

Thursday, March 16th, 2017

Was reading this…

Fury Road: Did Uber Steal the Driverless Future From Google? Inside the vicious patent fight over self-driving technology. By Max Chafkin and Mark Bergen

…and that reminded me of this, the last time I saw PRIBOT, the ur-car, left forgotten on the mean Streets of San Francisco:

Poor Pribot!

In closing:

“He’s an asshole, but he’s our asshole.”

Is This UBER Filming an S-Class Mercedes-Benz Driving About Frisco’s Financh?

Friday, December 9th, 2016

And when I say UBER, I mean some people hired by UBER for some marketing effort.

And when I say filming, I mean videoing, or recording, or whathaveyou, as it’s prolly a digital camera what Bro was pointing out of the back of the black SUV, as seen on California in the 94104.

Anyway, one Googles and sees:

Uber Has Apparently Ordered $10 Billion Worth of Mercedes S-Class Sedans. That’s a lot of expensive luxury cars for an app dedicated to undercutting local taxi prices.

Perhaps there’s a connection here, IDK.

Oh Lord, won’t you buy me 100,000 self-driving Mercedes Benzes?

Do You Have to Have a Front License Plate for Your Car? YES – But Does UBER Have to for Its Cars? IDK

Monday, October 31st, 2016

Here’s a robot car in The Richmond:

And here’s what John Law has to say:

5200. (a) When two license plates are issued by the department for
use upon a vehicle, they shall be attached to the vehicle for which
they were issued, one in the front and the other in the rear.

I’m thinking there are reasons you’d especially want an FLP on Uber’s experimental cars, but maybe that’s just me…

Supervisor Scott Wiener’s Transportation Issue – Shamed by Stanley Roberts – Potential Senators Behaving Badly?

Monday, September 12th, 2016

Obviously, Supervisor Scott Wiener needs a driver to squire him around Frisco (and the very small slice of San Mateo County what he pretends to actually care aboot these days, eh?).

So here’s two strikes earlier this year – driving and double parking, as reported by former ValleyWagger Kevin Montgomery:

Of course, if I were Scott Wiener, I’d be all, “Man, I don’t even own an aging silver Nissan.” Or something. But no, he simply ignored this situation.

Or I would have taken these incidents as a wake-up call. And then have gotten a volunteer to drive me to my daily engagements.

But no – so here comes well-known KRON-TV’s Stanley Roberts, of People Behaving Badly fame:

Now this sitch here I don’t understand, you know fully:

capturelijoijoij-copy

Perhaps Scott Wiener should clear things up for us, you know, explain what his issues are here. (IDK, maybe somebody stole his Nissan and then parked it here – who knows. Or maybe he was so busy texting that he doesn’t really know what he’s doing IRL anymore.)

But why would such a sanctimonious “urbanist” even own a car in the first place, in Frisco of all places?

“W: What I will say is my perspective is neither the SFMTA or SFPD takes double-parking seriously. And I don’t say that lightly. I’m a fan of both agencies. I work with them. I believe SFPD and SFMTA are committed to Vision Zero. There are some really good people within SFPD who do want to see it happen. But double parking is one area where both agencies have just failed… it’s private automobiles, it’s taxis, it’s garbage trucks… it’s an unending situation. They cause traffic jams, they block Muni, they block the bike lane, it undermines our entire transportation system and makes our streets more dangerous. It is one of my significant frustrations.”

Scott Wiener – sell your car or get a driver.
