For a long time I’ve wanted to get a shot of a police car numbered 106. There’s one in the Fredericksburg Police Department fleet that I see from time to time, but given I have no cellphone/smart phone, I don’t usually have a digital camera handy to catch it in those unexpected moments. But while watching the 1985 Bond film A View to a Kill the other night one of the patrol cars pursuing Bond around the streets of San Francisco was 106. I figured that might be worth a quick “Illustrate 106” assignment.
You can see the 106 clearly in the image above. This image comes from the scene right before this car, which is stuck on a drawbridge raising vertically, crashes back into another police car. The gravitational pull of ds106 was extremely strong twenty five years before the class even started. #4life.
