Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. It's time for another 1960s Mustang!
Lots of street-driven early Mustangs in this town; so far we've had this '65, this '65, this '66, this '66, this '68, this '69, this '69, this '69, and this '73 in the series. What about the competition from GM and Chrysler? Well, we've seen a single first-gen GM F-Body and just one Chrysler E-Body. Something is going on here; perhaps Mustangs survive the rigors of the street better than Camaros and Challengers, or maybe it's just that Mustang owners don't have quite the same levels of trailer-queen-grade protectiveness about their cars.
