Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. 1970s Benzes are quite common on the island, but not W114 coupes!
The thing about the W114 and this series is that the old indestructible Mercedes-Benzes have been part of the scenery for so long that they don't really catch my eye on the street. When I see a not-so-old SL, I'll usually shoot it, but a W114 sedan? Maybe next time- it'll still be around in 20 years, so no rush. A coupe, however- that's a different story! I thought the beige car against a beige background looked pretty cool, too.
Explorer 2-Person Inflatable Kayak
Comfortable for anyone
Nnjoy the water but don’t want to deal with the hassle of traditional kayaks? This is portable, lightweight, and easy to store when not in use.
Even with the Malaise Era 5 MPH crash bumpers, this 35-year-old machine is a real beauty. And with the big 2.8 liter M110 engine it's probably pretty quick as well.
