  • Jalopnick Spots a '61 on the Street

    The car blog Jalopnik does a regular feature called 'Down on the Street' where they post photos pf old cars spotted parked on the street (not in a driveway) of Almeda CA.

    At the beginning of the month they posted on this very tired 1961 Thunderbird still in use.





    A bunch more photos at Jalopnik, and check out the other cars too. Some neat old stuff still driving around there.

        No they do not, just smog inspections down to 1974ish

          That poor car has been worked to death. It deserves better.

            I have mixed feelings. Hey, it's still on the road and driven regularly, that's pretty cool. But I agree, it deserves to have been treated better over the years. Would take a lot of work to bring it back.

            The guy that owns it also has a 1970 Chevy 4 door hardtop that they wrote up, also quite beat up. Better than the T'bird, though.

              I've seen worse.

              My second Bulletbird was a 61 similar to that. Thrashed out pretty bad interior wise from sitting out in the sun, dents all over, needing a complete restoration.

              This one could be brought back from the brink but it looks like it will be a parts car in a few months.
