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 about a Chevelle with the super-rare Roofer Option Package?

I'm still not quite sure what you're supposed to call the Malibu from this era, whether the preferred nomenclature is "Chevy Malibu" or "Chevy Chevelle Malibu." The Malibu was just a trim level for the Chevelle in '67, but later became a model in its own right. Either way, this one is seriously mean-looking, which means we get to see how it fares against some other Evil Alameda Chevrolets.

This car was parked in front of a house undergoing a roof replacement, and the roof racks seem to be made for ladders and scaffolds. There's the usual neglected-California-car surface rust, but overall it appears to be pretty solid; no doubt this much-sought-after two-door will evade the Crusher when the current owner decides it's time to move up to a beater pickup.

OK, now let's have our poll! Here's a sampling of some of the Evil Chevy cars we've seen down on the Alameda street (sorry, truck fans, cars only). Vote for your favorite!
