On Da Street

Google Maps now offers street-level views. Nice implementation.

They drove through Rockridge. Cool.
They skipped West Oakland. Sigh.

For Sale: Ultimate Family Car

(Edited 5/31: Here's the Craigslist ad)

For once, I'm selling a car instead of buying one. Contact me if interested.

For sale: 2002 Porsche Carrera 4 Convertible in Seal Gray. 2+2 seating, 4 wheel drive. Strap a child seat in the back, like we have it set up, and the whole family can rocket down to Music Together at 177 mph. In the rain. With the top down.

46K miles, no mechanical problems whatsoever (factory warranty to 45K miles), with all service records through the 2 previous owners. Extended warranty through 75K miles. 6-speed manual. Goodies include nav, parking sensor, 18" "turbo twist" wheels and remote convertible top operation -- this last feature will convince your kids that you bought a Transformer.

Air bags everywhere, EPA rated 24 MPG highway. Have the matching hardtop in storage.

KBB Private Party pricing pegs it at $52K in "good" condition. Yours for thousands below that!

This place near our warehouse, a former Pioneer Chicken location, apparently has an all-fried-foods menu:

Unfortunately for West Grand Avenue's Allstar Chinese Food & American Food, few drivers seem to be stopping to sample the restaurant's doughnuts, friend chicken or shrimp fried rice.
