Of course, Scion is a “maker” in its own right, but I don’t know the model name of this one. (IRL, it’s a Toyota.)

They have buses too, of course.
It’s just like a nighttime bear attack at a Yosemite parking lot:

Now why did Lexus choose San Francisco, of all the cities of the world, as the place to debut its “Laws of Attraction” exhibit and to unveil it’s brand-new LS 460 F Sport model?
I don’t know, I guess we’re special.
Hey, look who was there, high atop the Metreon at City View:
It’s the Stars of the Lexus Laws of Attraction Photo Exhibit as they pose with the 2013 Lexus LS: (left to right) Jonathan Adler, Simon Doonan, Devon Aoki, James Bailey, Jaime King, Kyle Newman, Brady Cunningham and Jason Schwartzman.
Man, this Monday night party was off the hook – I was transformed from an overweight Dell Jockey into an overweight Dell Jockey at the City View:
Oh, and what’s this just outside but four stories up, a Lexus supercar, the likes of which I’ve only seen once before? How did they get this halo vehicle to the roof of the Metreon? Crane, chopper, ramps, giant elevator? It’s a mystery:
(You can’t just buy one of these, Lexus has to invite you to buy this $400,000 car. There’s just 500 in the world, that’s it.)
The place was packed, hundreds and hundreds of party-goers were up there:
Oh, here we go, the moment of unveiling:
Do people take iPads to parties to take photos these days? People do:
See the photos behind the car? That was the point of this shindig, deets below:
A good time was had by all, all the dolled-up gals from the east and south bay and all the older dudes from Marin…
If you ever get invited to a free party hosted by Lexus, jump at the chance, is all I can say.
Get all the deets, see all the art photos of the couples, see the new, sportier Lexus, see the new “spindle” grill, see the less-luxurious, performance-oriented SPORT F sedan, see it all, right here and/or after the jump.
Visitors ask all me all the time if my giant Toyota has ever gotten stuck between other cars whilst parked on the mean streets of San Francisco.
And the answer has always been in the negatory.
But I think this here is an actual case, what with bumpers of the black VW cute-ute SUV actually touching the cars ahead and behind.

I don’t know, maybe you could rev your engine to gently push the cars out of your way, but that would seem to be a risky course.
I guess the driver might have to just be patient and then come back to see when escape becomes a possibility…
You could hear this Toyota idling from a good distance away on Earth Day 2012.
I suppose you could have reached in and used the keys to turn the thing off, but then, who knows, that’s when our Hollywood-obsessed SFPD might have swept in from their hiding positions.

Hours later, this rig was still there, chugging away.
I don’t think that this was an SFPD operation, but you never know. You’re best off giving a wide berth and getting on to the friction of the day…
Chugga, chugga, chugga…
