If you skim past the articles on gang problems and homeless initiatives in the local news section of today’s LA Times, you’ll find a piece about Luxury on Main, the forthcoming condo development for your car. Because it’s about time your car got the shelter it deserves. No more hoi polloi garages for your wheels, no sir. You can now reserve a condo with a wet bar, climate control, a concierge and rooftop gardens for your sweet ride. And shouldn’t you think about an interior design package for your car’s condo (starting at $60 a square foot)? You wouldn’t want to park that Bugatti Veyron in just any cement-floored garage with flourescent lighting, would you? It might forget that it’s a luxury car.
Why am I a socialist? Because we live in a city where people sleep on the streets and go without dinner, and a guy like Alex Dastmalchi (featured in the LA Times story) is forking over $650,000 for two 650-square-foot condos for his cars. For fuck’s sake, I work my ass off in a job that literally saves lives, and I can’t afford to live somewhere with central air, but Alex Dastmalchi’s cars can.
