1986 Dodge Daytona Turbo ZS

Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's a type of car I've been hunting for since this series began, a machine so 80s it's like Ollie North in pink leg warmers: the Dodge Daytona Turbo Z! We've seen some members of the extended Chrysler K Family (such as this Aries and this Reliant), but now it's time to see one of the sporty Ks (technically a G, but close enough).

This one isn't exactly pristine, but it's not too rough for a 22-year-old car that few have ever considered a real classic. You got 146 turbocharged horsepower out of the 2.2 in your '86 Turbo Z, which moved the 2,630-pound car pretty well for the era.

Back in the turbo-mad 80s, you had to advertise the hairdryer's presence with emblems all over the place… but was a window trim emblem really necessary? The price tag on one of these things came to $11,301, which was about a grand cheaper than a new Nissan 200SX turbo and $1,200 less than the IROC-Z Camaro. The price of an '86 Ford Mustang SVO? $15,272!
