Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Look, some AE86s are still seeing daily-driver duty!
This car has been through some punishing experiences, yet it's still being used to haul groceries and has yet to fall into the hands of a kid who will howl "Hey y'all, watch this!" as he disappears into a haze of tire smoke. You can tell from the rust around the front body damage that the fender-bender wasn't particularly recent, but it still gets the job done and the owner hasn't had to put bodywork real high on the priority list.
This has been a great neighborhood for DOTS sightings; we've seen the '78 Dodge Colt, '87 BMW M6, and- best of all- the very first car in the series was photographed about 20 feet from this Corolla's parking space. And hey, can you spot the '66 Datsun 411 in the photo above?
