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 the fourth Datsun 510 in the series.

We've seen this 1971 510, this 1972 510, and this 510 wagon so far, and some might consider this '73 610- also known as the Bluebird-U- an honorary 510 as well.

I found this hot-rodded '73 parking near the high school, and its owner was happy to show off his not-so-hellish project car. It has the original L16 for now, but something bigger might find its way under the hood in the future.
