San Francisco is Cushman Crazy

Not one week after I noticed a gaggle of these three-wheelers in front of Chicken John’s, The Wall Street Journal took an interest in the city’s Cushman culture. Yes, it looks like this is indeed “a thing”.

Check out the article and video on WSJ, where the owners rave about getting mad children love, parking wherever they want, and scaring the shit out of drivers whose meters are about to expire. Apparently, these babies are also major graffiti magnets. But at least some thoughtful taggers tend to ask first:

They say, ‘Hey, do you mind if I write my graffiti on your car?’

Uh, yes.

    As far as I’m concerned, it rates right up there with having a coffin for a bed (or coffee table — I’ve seen both), a barber chair for lounging, etc.

    Novelty and bad taste are close cousins.

    Perfect car for the city. A definite upgrade to the golf cart that’s always parked on Potrero.
