This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Since I just drove to Denver, how about more mile-high iron?

I shot these photos on a previous Colorado trip- winter before last, in fact- but I've seen the car around since then and it still seems to run. I don't bring my automotive reference library with me on the road, but my Maverick Sense tells me that we're looking at a '72 here (the four-door debuted in '71 and big bumpers appeared in '73, so there's a decent chance that my guess is accurate). This car is on the rough side, clearly having tasted some road salt in its day, but it has outlived most of its imported competition and continues to rack up the miles. The Gawker Server Hamsters claim that using the new-style gallery is preferable to forcing readers with slo-mo internet connections to download all the images at once on their 1200 baud handset-cradle modems, so here we go!
