The Public Works fellas fixing a cracked Muni track at Duboce and Sanchez weren't impressed by the vintage set of wheels, however.

"We don't put up these signs for nothing," said one, nodding at the prominent "NO PARKING" placard.

True enough. And this is a car that even looks good while it's getting towed away.
