Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. We've seen a white 1966 Amazon coupe, and here's a matching sedan.

We see Amazons on the racetrack and in the junkyard, but many of the not-as-old-as-they-look Swedes still see daily-driver service in California. This one is on the rough side, but the rust looks to be of the surface variety and it's definitely a runner.

Some of you may recognize the parking space as the same one in which we captured the donked '76 Buick Regal. The super-mean '69 Lincoln Continental lives just down the block, making this one of the better DOTS locations on the island.

Our new gallery systems still have a few bugs, so I'm forced to do an either/or decision on the new versus old gallery styles in these posts. For those of you who prefer the old-style galleries, you can find one for this car right here. Ideally, the Server Hamsters will permit us to have both types of photo gallery in the same post, but for now we're going to use this workaround.
