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 nice early Datsun Z?

This car appears to be a very solid unrestored example of Nissan's first Z car, just the kind of machine we like to see getting some street time.

It appears that there's a fairly serious Z aficionado in the neighborhood, because look what else is parked in front of the same house. The 1986 Honda CRX HF lives just across the street from the 240Z, and the Deadhead '59 Mercedes-Benz 220S convertible parks less than a block away.
