1965 Volkswagen Transporter Walk-Through Panel Van Welcome to Down On The Street , where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California.

However, the VW geeks out there are saying "Oooooh! The doors!

Some bodywork might be a good idea, but overall it seems quite solid.
