Must be a treehugger

March 19, 2013

Runs on Sunshine









We saw this sign on a car in Berkeley CA.  We assume it must be a treehugger that owns the vehicle.


What if it rains?

Drophead CU









We saw this “drophead” trolly car in San Francisco recently and used this shot to illustrate the latest column written by the World’s Laziest Journalist.  Since we took the shot we figure it is OK to use it on our own blog.

Seeing this Ford Mustang in Berkeley recently we wondered:  Aren’t we seeing more 1965 Mustangs on the road these days than were actually made back then?  How could that be?

The only way we can figure out to “collect” slap art is to take photos.  Do any art dealers sell slap art?  If so, who, where?  Posting may be restricted during the next few days when our source to the Internets may be severely restricted.

crop of man and dog statue














What can be better than an enthusiastic welcome home from your dog?  This statue was photographed in Fremantle W. A. around Xmas of 2008.

Ford coupe long shot









We came across this shot of a car we spotted in Pasadena CA about three years ago whilst we were looking for a photo to run with our next column for Smirking Chimp, Op Ed News, and Bartcop blog section.  We won’t use this with the column . . . but we will post it here for car spotting fans just because it’s not every day you see a beauty like this.  (Yes we did see our share of Deuces in Pasadena.)

Red ford front









As they say in Canada, beauty, eh?

Red ford rear

We saw this car in San Francisco CA on Tuesday Oct 16.  We unknow what kind of car it is.  Maybe the folks at Autodesk will see this and post that information in the comment section below.

UCB band on cable car

Seen Monday Oct 15, 2012 in San Francisco CA.












It’s not every day that you see the Cal Berkeley band on one of San Francisco’s world famous cable cars.


DOTS Berkeley Style

August 31, 2012












This 1969 21 window split windshield was seen in Berkeley CA recently.  The occupants of the vehicle (who root for the All Blacks?) were donating books to the Berkeley Public Library (seen in the background).




















What ever happened to the DOTS feature on Jalopnik?  Maybe we should apply for the job of being the DOTS intern?
