Last week a retired Muni bus, with a short tour of Hollywood, made its way on eBay, with an opening bid of $2,300. Eleven bids later, Blinktag, a San Francsico-based web desin and city planning firm, bought the 1984 articulated 60-ft MAN, still in full Muni uniform, for $3,250. And Blinktag says the bus is "worth every penny" the company spent on it.
"What’s even sweeter is that we figured every hipster with $10,000 bucks would have bid on this guy," a representative for the company told SFist. "But I guess the down economy has come to our rescue once again. Burning Man, here we come."
SXSW might be in the works too.
