Man, this thing must be a neighborhood legend! It blends in so well with the eerie fall setting, and dang those hubcaps set it off. As a former 210 owner, I bet this thing drives way better than it looks. I can't imagine a better sleeper platform than a woodgrain 210 wagon.

Those hubs are KILLER. Man, the hangover puke tan, the woodgrain, the hubcaps, they all fit together perfectly.

well, so much for "oldparkedcars" being about shots of cars in good shape. This one takes the cake! I love the shot of the debris inside the windshield and the crazed, oxidized woodgrain.

My neighbors once had a Datusn similar to this one, except that it was blue and lacking the woodgrain trim. We were playing in it in the garage one day and I accidentally popped the clutch (even though I didn't know what a clutch was at the time). I have never seen him move so fast as he did when that car started moving. Great memories from a great old parked car!
