This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we admire street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. Would you park your Ferrari in the City Of Unlimited Door Dings?

Well, maybe the not-so-loved Ferrari 400 would be willing to take the punishment of life in San Francisco without tearing its owner's heart out every time some piss bum hurled a spark plug through a window in order to scavenge 77 cents from the glovebox. Naters4 took these blurry-but-serviceable cellphone shots for us a few months back:

I biked past this 400 GT in Cole Valley and had to stop despite the fact that the incline of the hill meant I may never start again. Don't know the year, but it was in great condition. Sorry the quality sucks, I just had my phone.
Enjoy!

. . . every time some piss bum hurled a spark plug through a window in order to scavenge 77 cents from the glovebox.

When I lived in Philly, that was a daily occurrence in the city. One day I walked by a Pontiac Sunbird with a busted passenger window, a brick in the shard-covered seat and the glovebox door hanging open. And this was back when typically the only things worth stealing out of a car were the Pioneer SuperTuner, toll booth change and the roaches from the ashtray.
