Residents of northwest Bernal are familiar with the hand-painted Honda that’s often parked near the Coso Triangle; the car is a conspicuous landmark that celebrates our local sports teams, fandom, and San Francisco itself.
Now this rolling monument to San Francisco civic pride can be yours, because a sign on the window says it’s for sale. According to the cashier at Precita Market — a friendly gent who is also the vehicle’s authorized sales agent — the car is owned by a nearby neighbor and can be had for $1500, very negotiable.
Beneath all that amazing paint lies a 1990 Honda Accord with straight bodywork and a 2.2L engine. It appears to be bone-stock, apart from the custom paint job, and a quick peek at the interior revealed it to be in good condition.
You might consider purchasing this vehicle as a daily driver. Or, after a proper buffing and polishing, it would also be rather exquisite on display under tasteful lighting at your favorite folk art, automotive, or sports memorabilia museum. Your choice.
UPDATE: June 24, 2017 Price cut! According to the signs on the window, the most San Francisco car in San Francisco can now be had for the LeMons-friendly price of just $500. What a value!
