Show me your angry face

Show Me Your Angry Face

Angry art car spotted at 17th Bryant Florida and Mariposa.

A car salesman recently told me that almost all 2012 cars are built with angry “faces”* because market research shows that people want to project an angry image when they drive. Or something like that. I’m not really sure why people want it. They want to look fast and furious? He said that the main exception are the people who’re buying a Prius or other hybrid, they still want a happy (dopey) face.


*I’m not talking Pixar’s version of a car face, where the windshield is where the eyes are. I’m talking Nick Park’s version, where we all see the face, the headlights and grille. Speaking of which, don’t you think Pixar should have given out windshield shades with eyes on them to promote Cars 2?? Marketing done easy!

Four wheeled bowling alley

Somebody finally installed a bowling alley in the Mission, but they did it in a car.

Ironic Car

I can’t tell if this Smart Car was tagged or decorated.

Updating The Situation

Interesting Proposition
First it was just a blindfolded Barbie™ top on the roof of a car. Then it got complicated.

I was walking down 17th Street and stopped when I recognized a familiar landmark. I noticed a pigeon standing on the roof, eyeing the torso with sideways glances. I was thinking about what the next level of this situation could look like when a man came out of Maverick and started speaking to me.

“Are you the owner of this car?”
“Oh. Well, we’ve been trying to figure out how to get this pigeon to skull fuck the Barbie™ for a while.”

Then he put a piece of bread on her head and we both watched and waited.

I suggested a trail, which he was already on top of. As he made the little bread path the bird got embarrassed and uncomfortable and flew away.

End of situation.

Mission Flashback: Lego Art Car on Capp St.



This art car was found all over the Bay Area in 2005/2006,* including the best street in the entire Mission District, but is merely now a rarely viewed set of Flickr images.  Does anyone know whatever happened to this Lego art car?

* maybe earlier?  Flickr did not exist prior to then.  Mega tears.
