The pace of Down On The Street slowed down quite a bit when I switched to the weekends-only gig early in 2009, but the year gave us more than 100 interesting Alameda vehicles. How about an end-of-the-year roundup deal?
I went through all the Alameda DOTS cars of 2009 and selected the ones that I recalled being most excited about spotting on the street at the time. It was tough getting the list down to a mere nine, but I endured the pain and did the cutting. Here we go, in order of appearance in the series:
1969 Citroën DS
Owned by the same guy who has the '63 Porsche 356 S Coupe and the the '67 Citroën DS21 Pallas, this Citroën DS wagon was the first DS to appear in the Down On The Street series (though not the first Citroën; we had this Traction-Avant and GS 1220 Club in '08).
