“Serving the Hastings Community” it says on the side.

So Hastings still has unarmed uniformed security guards? IDK. Back in the 1990′s there was some push for them to cowboy up with sidearms* but some people thought it a bad idea.

Anyway, presenting one of the few police vehicles in San Francisco not made by Ford…

*Or “assault weapons” in the lexicon of our day.

Tuesday, April 9th, 2013

Remember back five years ago, when the SFPD pined for Chrysler products?

Well, it’s happening, man. It’s finally happening.

Sighted yesterday in Randy Shaw’s corrupt Twitterloin / corrupt Microsoft Yammerloin, here’s my white whale, a Dodge Charger in SFPD livery

Is this a one-off, merely a test? Or is it the start of a flood of SFPD radio cars what aren’t Ford Crown Victorias?

I know not.

Anyway, this is a shock after seeing decades of Crown Vics prowling the 415.

Does anybody know?

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

That’s what you might conclude after seeing a tableau such as this on Market Street:

(Couldn’t tell if there are still holes in the roof from the television antenna installation.)

Or maybe Gavin’s former limo is down in the batcave, fueled up and waiting for the Next Great San Francisco Disaster?

Don’t know…

4-Door Porsche Panamera Caught on the Streets of San Francisco

Monday, October 20th, 2008

Oh no! Look out BMW Gran Turismo, the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG, Aston Martin Rapide, Lamborghini Estoque, Maserati Quattroporte, Bentley Continental GT, and Ferrari 612 Scaglietti. ‘Cause here comes der neu 4-door Porsche Panamera!

You see, they need to find out if such a fine vehicle can handle the steep streets of San Francisco. Fair enough, but doesn’t the body look all stretched out, like a 1978 “pregnant cow” Nissan / Datsun 280Z / Fairlady 2+2?

No front license plate, which is required in California. Minus 5 points, Gryffindor House.

It sure looks fast though.

Can it outrun a recession? We’ll find out soon enough.
