Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We need more AMCs in this series!
If you count Ramblers, so far the only Kenosha cars we've seen on the island have been this '60 American, this '61 American, this '65 American, this '69 Ambassador SST wagon, and this '76 Pacer X. While I've got a real soft spot for the Oleg Cassini Edition '75 Matador, most car freaks would suggest the AMX- or maybe the SC/Rambler- as their all-time favorite AMC product. Here's one, with a 4-speed and everything!
This car lives on the same block as the '65 Mercury Comet, seen here in the foreground, and both machines are part of the same family; father owns the AMX and daughter drives the Comet.
Since the Comet DOTS photos resulted in some very Robert Bechtle-esque photographs, I decided to shoot for that effect with the AMC as well. This one's a little dark for true Bechtle style, but what the heck.
