I think some art director noticed a tow strap still attached to the tow hook and either wound around the brush bar or stuffed into the spare on the bonnet of a camel trophy defender and was like "I got an idea..."

Saw this nice silver 110 in Boone, NC yesterday and today. Looks like he is making Lowes runs with it. Photos refuse to post correctly

The owner is a real dork. I offered him $15,000 because it's a pile of junk and he said he'd only take $50,000 because it's a "rare" black and has never been in a photo shoot before.

I hope for your sake you're not actually in NJ and didn't tell me.

I heard he had to install a fold down side step on his fold down side step as he's so short he can't climb in.

Nice find! Plates from the '80's and patchwork patina. What are you doing in The City? Are you just on holiday, or part of Dreamforce?

Too funny! Backing up isn't nearly as bad as going the wrong way. I can't say how many other people might have been dumb enough to try to go "UP" Lombard street, but I can say that I'm one of them! ;-) Just a born and raised in The City high school bucket list 4 a.m. mission of a teenager without a clue. YOLO indeed!
