Looking for Lombard Street Rally Pictures

Posted on September 7, 2008 at 1:24pm 9 Comments

There was an event held in San Francisco on August 17th. I understand there were over 100 Smart Cars lined down the famous Lombard Street hill (you can only go down this crooked street) and I'm looking for the pictures. Has anyone seen them and where are they? I am a native San Franciscan and a Smart car owner, so I have an interest in how this event turned out.

Thanx loads Dariusz, this gives me a feel for the entire day. Sure would have liked to have been there. Good times at old haunts. I still know SF as if I never left yet haven't lived in the City for over half a century.

Take a look at my new rear bumper pic's. Got the hoop from RealWheels Corp. Very good quality and very expensive. Plus, I had professional help install it. Had to remove the whole rear end covering including the quarter panels. It seems there is so much overlapping of panels that you can't remove the rear center panel w/o moving half way up the sides. Oh well, I like the results. BTW, don't buy the tail light surrounds from the same source. I did and removed them. More only if you are interested.

Thanx again for all the good info' and sharing...Springfever

Hi Springfever,
these are the links that I got from a couple who were there at the SF rally too. I am still waiting for the pictures from the photographer who started the whole idea. He was with us all the way to drive to Stinson beach and took the actual real photos of us (not the half cropped auto pictures that I took with a timer).
Here are the links (quotting Igor) : enjoy:

I posted my pictures here:

There are also more pictures from other people at

cheers,

Back to you Mr Bad Ex. Though S.F. is my birth place I have lived all over the country, West, Midwest and East. Had a number of years in Chicago land and thus know Portillos and numerous other landmarks. Still have two kids in Illinois and 10 grand kids there, so we visit quite a lot. Calif. is home, about 3 hours above SF in the Sierra Foothills on the way up to Reno and North Lake Tahoe. My yellow & black smart car serves well in local driving and is quite a hit around here as we're an hour above Sacramento and not very many cousins here. I hear you about Spain. #2 son spent 3 years in Rota w/the USAF and it was heavenly duty on the S/W corner overlooking the convergence of the Gold Coast w/the Atlantic.

Glad you like the color -- I sure do!

Since the Stream Green that I'd admired in Europe and Canada was not an option in the US, I decided to take matters into my own hands. I debated getting an extra set of panels and painting them, but the vinyl wrap was about the same price, and theoretically allows the color to be returned to boring "red" *cough* orange if/when I let him fly the coop.
