Or any of the old 2-door Buicks. I have one, and taking the door off was a 3 person job.

Better yet, imagine having a stick shift car there and having to de-park and turn uphill to get out due to one way traffic flow

Did my physical driving test on the hills of San Francisco in a 1967 Sunbeam Alpine. Parallel parking on hills and blocking wheels was part of the test. The Alpine was cool because the emergency break was on the left side of the driver seat.

I went through clutches at a good clip when driving around SF. It was still fun to be there then though. The SF Bay Area has changed so much. The area attracted too much "young" money too fast and has not yet learned how to behave with it. It has the largest concentration of millionaires in the country, even more than Beverly Hills, and the lowest level of philanthropic support of any too. Mine! Mine! Mine! And conspicuous greed.

Here parallel parking is like a comedy sketch. In Central Illinois it is just so far beyond many they will just drive around the block until 2-3 spaces open up! Or they just go to malls where it is not an issue.

That apartment is in San Francisco on Jones Street just north of Green Street.
