VeloCity Service Accord

In this image that I stole from his Website, Swazey is seen lowering his saddle so that while his work bike is on the roof of his 1976 Honda Accord it will clear the ceilings of various Uptoon Parking Garages. The other morning when I rode away from a delivery to my client at the Hearst Tower I rolled by Swazey walking past me wearing his 'messenger' bag without a bike. Hmmm, what did I see just after I turned the corner onto 5th Street. BIKE ON THE ROOF Swazey's work bike on the roof of his Company Car, a 1976 Honda Accord with faded hood that he bought in the eighties for a song. Apparently after he makes 5 more payments this half assed painted car will be all his.
In Accordance with CMA general statute 10-283(gs 10-283) a bicycle courier must ride their bike while on the job and not attempt to fool the general public into thinking that just because you are wearing a bag that you are out there pedaling around. NO CARS ALLOWED WITHIN THE BELT ROOKIE.
Looks like Swazey has this Accord nailed down, his hammer must me in the trunk.
Remember when you choose VeloCity your package may actually be delivered by car which will impede the arrival time of the delivery by around about 5-7minutes. Cars have to stop at lights, find adequate/legal parking and occasionally dare I say pull into a petrol station and pay for the fuel.

Which song? Knowing that might aid in the bargaining for future Honda sales.
