“I’m not trying to rob anyone. I’m not asking for any handouts. All I want for you to hand me is a smile.” Maurice Ford, 34, tells the San Francisco Chronicle about the motive behind his mobile gaming car that can often be found in the City’s Mission District.
Ford offers passer-bys the chance to post-up by his car and play classics like “Mario Kart 64,” “Super Mario World,” “Duck Hunt,” “Tecmo Bowl,” and many other games on an array of different systems from the Sega Genesis to the Nintendo Gamecube.
Last night, for instance, he was hanging out over at 16th St. & Valencia St., on Wednesdays he can often be found outside Teeth SF (2323 Mission St.).
Maurice Ford (“Mo”) claims he uses no outside electricity to power the games and that they’re powered by “magic”. According to the Chronicle he works a graveyard shift at the Halal Guys on Mason & O’Farrell, but one day if he can start making enough in tips from his gaming car he’d like to upgrade his vehicle and turn it into a full-time job.
