Know Your Indestructible Japanese Cars of Yesteryear: A Starlet at Benihana, an Aging Toyota in Japantown

Haven’t seen one of these in a while.

Rear-wheel-drive – unusual:

I’m Thinking that Tesla Model S Drivers are Now Out-Jerking Toyota Prius Drivers, and That’s Saying Something

Wednesday, September 11th, 2013

Toyota Prius drivers have been the worst in town for the longest time now, but 2013 is bringing a change.

Take this driver for instance. Repeated lane changes allowed her the ability to totally tailgate an unsuspecting Prius driver.

This isn’t such a great crime but it’s about the fifth or sixth bad thing she did in a mile or so.

Let’s see if Tesla driver behavior can beat the bad accident and police ticketing rate of the Prius driver…

 

 

TMI, Frisco-Style: Presenting the Toyota Pious Hybrid HYBRID

Thursday, August 29th, 2013

But does it get better mileage than a non-hybrid Honda CRX HF from 1980′s?

Sadly, no.

Oh well.

Spotted: New Google Lexus SUV – It’s Self Driving Of Course – And Check Out All These Other Google Conveyances

On McAllister Street near Alamo Square in the Western Addition, June 20, 2013:

The sad thing was that on this block there was a ton of people waiting for San Francisco’s incompetent bus service, MUNI. (It’s the slowest big city transit system in the history of America.)

And here it is, from a little while back, the current generation Google Maps Car. (A Subaru, judging by the Pleiades icon on the nose – for some reason, Google stripped the badges from the rear of these cars.) Are there cameras and SICK laser range finders and WiFi detectors and whatnot on top of this Subie? Who knows…

And here’s what these rides looked like before they got wrapped:

And this was the first generation Map Car, seen getting busted by the Federal popo in the Presidio.

I’ve heard contradictory stories (so that’s four people promoting two completely different narratives) on why this particular Googler got busted, or not busted as the case may be. Oh well. Did the Presidio Trust tell Google to get a permit? And did Google ignore that request? Don’t know.

And of course, don’t forget about the Google Bus:

And the Google Bikes:

And the Google office:

And the Google Kitchen – it’s just like a 7-11 except shoplifting is encouraged:

And here’s the concomitant G-Toilet – it costs $700, it has over 20 buttons for its full operation, it’s made in Japan:

So that’s Google’s world.

Now, there are a lot of counterfeit Google Map Cars out there as well:

Accept No Substitutes.

Bon Courage, Googlers!

Shots From The 100: The Biggest Windmill I’ve Ever Seen – For the Giant Anheuser-Busch Beer Brewery in Fairfield, CA

Thursday, May 2nd, 2013

Back in the day, we only had little wind turbines.

Click to expand

Anheuser-Busch and Foundation Windpower assembled a white wind turbine with a tower some 320 feet tall at the Budweiser brewery along Interstate 80. Hundreds of such mammoth turbines are in place 10 miles to the east in rural Montezuma Hills pastureland, but this one is in Fairfield city limits. Brewing beer at Budweiser should soon be a breeze. Plant General Manager Kevin Finger estimated the turbine could provide 20 percent of the electricity for the brewery.”

The Bay Area Air Quality Management District Drives to the Meeting About Eliminating Parking Spaces on Polk Street – Ironic?

Monday, April 29th, 2013

I’m not finished yet.

Look at this official Bay Area Air Quality Management District staff car. What powers it? Gasoline. Evil, evil gasoline.

Now let’s leave aside the half-assed parking job directly in front of the latest Polk Great Streets Complete Streets “Improvement” Meeting. Oh wait, let’s not. Parallel parking involves being parallel, right? Work on that, BAAQMD. And should you have left your ass hanging over the official SFMTA red zone? Have you no respect for The Law, BAAQMD?

Hey BAAQMD, where’d you come from to get to the corner of Bush and Polk? Tell me and I’ll then tell you which crappy SFMTA bus line you all could have used to get to the meeting. I myself came up Sutter from the office ’cause it’s relatively flat. See? I’m loaded with info!

Conveniently using one of the many parking spaces it wants to eliminate in the Polk Corridor. Let’s call this shot The High Cost of Free Parking:

Click to expand

Hey BAAQMD! Do you pay the meters when you park you gasoline-powered cars about town on the weekends? I think we had a big deal about this issue just last year, right? Oh no, you just leave the meter flashing EXPIRED EXPIRED while you tend to your bidness for hours? OK fine.

Oh well.

The BAAQMD isn’t an Air Quality Management program, it’s a jobs program.

It’s a jobs program for the people who work for … the BAAQMD.

Just saying.
