Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. How is it that I've spaced on putting my own car in this series?

Well, maybe because it's still registered as "non-operational," which means it's not really supposed to be on the street. However, this was a special occasion; I've decided to have Evil Genius Racing build a 5-link rear suspension (with narrowed RX-7 rear end) for it, plus install a rollbar and some other goodies. Maybe we'll throw it on the dyno and see how many horses that Weberized Toyota 20R has in it!

Obviously, the horrible exhaust system needs to go, and I'll need to reinstall the taillights at some point. Note the locations where fiberglass wheel flares once lived; I've still got them, in case any of you Spridget owners feel like putting fat-ass Mickey Thomspon drag tires on your cars.

When you make a Brougham stencil to apply on the cars of 24 Hours Of LeMons miscreants, you need to test it somewhere, right? I may have the world's only Austin-Healey Sprite Brougham Edition.

Onto the tow truck and 90 miles east to Sacramento with my Hell Project!
