Outrageousness: Eighth-Generation Buick Riviera on Conestoga Wheels – What are These, Twenty-Eight Inchers?

The secret is to make your super-tall aftermarket wheels thin, the better to allow your whip to, you know, turn left and right:

Isn’t It Ironic? Marin County Native Drives a Volvo, Personalized Plate Tells World of Marin Native Status

Monday, August 6th, 2012

What are the odds?

Note the “I park for free wherever” decal in the window:

Someday, I’ll be a rich, white Marin Native, you know, if I work hard enough at it, if I apply myself…

Or maybe I should have had the foresight, you know, in the womb, to have arranged things so I would have been born a rich, white Marin Native…

Reverse Dooring Narrowly Averted on Busy Market Street – Drivers Need to Pull Over to Let Passengers Out

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Generally speaking, people inside cars are held at fault when they open up doors without checking and harm results

The DMV calls this rule “Opening and Closing Doors”

“22517.  No person shall open the door of a vehicle on the side available to moving traffic unless it is reasonably safe to do so and can be done without interfering with the movement of such traffic…”

Which is fine, but moving traffic can come by both sides of a parked car. See?

Another Market Street dooring narrowly averted – the cyclist in front almost collided with the right rear passenger door when it flew open expectantly:

So I don’t know, I think I’d tell my passengers to look out before I dropped them off for them to drop their money at our shopping malls.

And I’d pull all the way over to minimize this concern in the first place.

Anyway, the next time this law gets rewritten, let’s write it more better…

Well, Here They Are: Brand New Red Light Cameras and Signals at Fell and Masonic

Enjoy.

Will this…

…plus this:

…eliminate this…

…and this?

Well, not actually because this particular car vs. bike from last year happened to be the impatient cyclist’s fault, because he went across against a red, because bike riders don’t have as much time to cross as they used to, owing to the newish dedicated cyclist light Oh well.

Anyway, I would have said that Santa installed all the new hardware, but I was beaten to the punch by Dale Danley / Panhandle Park Stewards, who naively wonder why the Panhandle Bandshell went away despite the fact that the “partners” of PPS are the same people who made the harmless bandshell go away.

(So I don’t know, I’ll consider the Panhandle Park Stewards ranking someplace north of that horribly corrupt Willie Brown S.L.U.G. vehicle for the while. Enjoy your “partnership” with the corrupt RPD, and the NIMBYed-up NoPNA, and the millionaires’ kid’s school as you garden, Deutsches Jungvolk und Bund Deutscher Mädel.)

Anyway, you can look forward to the flashing lights of traffic cams when errant drivers err at Fell and Masonic. (UCSF shuttle van drivers beware, beware!)

Hilarious: Volvo Station-Wagon Owner Mocks Ferrari with Fighting Moose Fender Badge

[UPDATE: All this makes writer Mickey Kaus wonder if #TheyHaveMooseInChina?]

Do you prefer the original?

Or the parody, as recently seen on Fulton Street?

Now that’s a moose and a Volvo pilot with attitude.

I Am Become White Trash, the Destroyer of Worlds: Mercedes Benz Gelandewagen G55 AMG Cabriolet

Wednesday, September 21st, 2011

[Apparently, these things will remain in production after all. I had thought the line shut down in the summer of 2011. This model was supposed to die in 2006, 2010, and 2011, but it still keeps chugging along...]

Achtung, baby!

As seen on Fillmore:

Kind of looks like a VW Thing, non?

They’re out of production now, but these G rigs went for $125K+ back in the day, and that was before the convertible “option.”

Here’s an exit interview with the German version of the Hummer.
