1984 Jeep Grand WagoneerWelcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. You know, after 379 vehicles in this series, we've had just one Jeep, and that was a 2-wheel-drive mail-carrier's DJ5? Oh, sure, we saw this 1945 GPW 'Jeep', but that was built by Ford! Meanwhile, we've had five IHC Scouts. What's the deal here- is Alameda's Navy-town heritage enforcing some unspoken anti-Army bias that results in old Jeeps getting vandalized? I got no idea, folks, but I knew I had to go out and find the oldest street-parked Jeep within easy walking distance of my house in town!

Yeah, OK, a 24-year-old Wagoneer isn't exactly a to-die-for classic, but you don't see many of the pre-Chrysler Jeep SUVs these days- why, this thing has got actual emblems from the AMC Death Throes Era. And how about this fine, incredibly realistic-looking "wood" paneling?

Is there any large SUV in the Bay Area that doesn't have a Keep Tahoe Blue sticker? Did the dealerships issue these things?
