Oddly enough, Nick Chambers, the detective in my "Fog City Nocturne" has no car. It largely serves to underline that he's not a very successful detective, and makes following a case a more difficult undertaking. (even his phone number is WAlker 3729) It's also just a fact of life that one can get around without a car in San Francisco, but there's definitely times when I'm sure he'd prefer to have one!
