Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Here's a classic that just needs a little TLC!

The alley next to Lee Auto Supply is technically a street (it has a name), so it's fair DOTS game when a Lee employee buys a parts car while on the job and leaves it in the alley for the day.

I'm positive that this is a Cutlass, and I'm 90% sure it's a '71. It appears to have been hit pretty hard on the right front, prior to being gutted, but it might yet be the basis for a project Olds. We've been so short on Cutlasses in this series (so far just this '69 convertible and this '67 Vista Cruiser) that even one as rough as this makes the DOTS cut!
