Found this earlier this month while on the way to work. The color scheme really threw me off, so at first I couldn’t even tell it was a Jaguar. I remain speechless.
The old joke is “You know you’ve lived in San Francisco too long when… the sight of a legal parking space can bring you to tears”. There’s two noteworthy things in these photos: 1) These photos were taken on 18th street, San Francisco, which is always packed because that one block has Dolores Park, Tartine, […]
These signs were spotted last week on Highway 101, right here in the bay area! Full story is on CBS local, the Marin Independent Journal, and the interview with the artist who created the fake signs as well as with the CHP spokesman. Well worth the 2 minute watch. My favorite quotes are: “No, we […]
Walking to a neighborhood coffeeshop, I found this immaculate Triumph TR3 parked on a side street near my house. Really spectacular to see, especially with the neighborhood street-parking sticker! For anyone curious for more details about this Triumph TR3 car click here
If you’re going to San Francisco Be sure to wear some flowers on your hair^Wantennae?!? (With respectful apologies to the late Scott McKenzie’s song from 1967: “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair…”) protip: I like how the flowers aerodynamically sweep back, and how zipties keep the […]
On Thursday, 10-may-2012, Caroll Shelby died, aged 89. Originally a chicken farmer, he became a race car driver until 1959, when heart problems brought his successful racing career to an end, so he switched again to focus on designing and building powerfully fast, brash, muscle cars that he loved to drive, including some great icons: […]
This in-car camera footage was taken during the rally in Tasmania a few days ago, and catches some mis-communication between the driver and the navigator. The car was doing 118mph (190km/hr) at the final corner. How people behave, and treat others, when things go wrong is quite telling. In this case, you can hear the […]
Walked past this Nissan GT-R parked on the side of the street in the Mission district of San Francisco. Spent several minutes walking around it, admiring. The license plate was a nice touch – wonder if the owner is involved with Mozilla? All the jokes about “a monster from Japan” are appropriate for this beast […]
Walking the back streets near Shibuya, in Tokyo, I found this immaculate Morgan +4 parked on the side of the narrow street, outside a crowded barber shop. Really spectacular, especially in this setting of narrow streets where even the delivery vans are super-compact. For anyone curious for more details about this Morgan +4 car click […]
Almost drove past this parked vehicle before I got the joke. The drive back around the block to take this photo was well worth it!
