Over the years, I’ve done several CC walks through my neighborhood. I sometimes worry a bit that with the passage of time, the number of CCs may drop. But it’s holding up pretty well, as this one block of Monroe Street shows rather graphically. Let’s walk down it.
These two on the left make a nice pairing. Old Toyota pickups are everywhere here, and no block is likely without one. But the Caprice is hardly common, as the early pre-1980 versions have become quite rare. Will finding any B-Body of this vintage be a big deal someday?
This house on the right is always good for an eclectic collection.
A Vanagon, early 70s Dodge D100, a T-Bird Turbo Coupe, a Chevy van, and a Malibu wagon. An equal-opportunity brand lover.
It’s not on the same block, but beyond the Vanagon there’s a fine old F100, and a yellow VW Beetle too.
Heading south again, we see some more classic Eugene-mobiles, in the form of the ever-popular Toyota van, a Mercedes W123 300 Turbo Diesel wagon, and a VW Eurovan.
And not just one, but two white Eurovans live here. Weren’t most of them white? OK, the Golf is the one interloper on this all-CC block.
And the driveway across the street has two more all-time Eugene-mobiles; a gen1 Subaru Outback, and a venerable Volvo 242 two door sedan, in that preferred baby blue.
Just one street on one block, but a pretty CC rich one. In case you missed my previous neighborhood walks, the links are below. It’s never too late to retrace my footsteps.
