Vast Quantities Of Old Iron Down On The Toronto Street

Illustration for article titled Vast Quantities Of Old Iron Down On The Toronto Street

This is Down On The Street Bonus Edition, where we check out interesting street-parked cars located in places other than the Island That Rust Forgot. We get to see quite a few interesting cars and trucks in Toronto, where they must use magical rust-free salt on the roads during wintertime, and today we've got a huge batch of good ones. In much the same way that a bicycle ride hipped Albert Hoffman to LSD, BMWer pedaled his way to vehicular enlightenment in his neighborhood. Jump away to see all the cars and to read BMWer's description.

Here's a whole bunch of pictures I took over two days. I decided to have some fun and ride my bike around the city looking for cool cars while I got some exercise. Anyhow, I found most of these cars within a very short radius of my house, with a few of these being not more than a quarter mile from one another (Innocenti, Aston, GMC van, Camaro). They were all captured in Toronto, except for the Beetle which was photographed at another time in Sarnia Ontario. These cars are amongst several I picked since I couldn't include all of them (too many). The Aston Martin really blew me away since it seems to be a custom bodied car (I didn't get a chance to do my research on it). Anyhow, I have plenty more pictures of it and of the several other cars in case you were interested in posting them (multiple views). I hope you enjoy them as much as I did taking them.

I'll take the DB III and the Innocenti, oh and throw the 914 in for good measure. The Aston, even in that condition, is likely a six-figure car. With only about 550 built, that's an excellent find.
