In this 1972 view, one of LA’s once beautiful PCCs shows the terrible effects of three years of battle on the mean streets of Cairo. As the years passed, more and more of the cars would succumb to fatal injuries, until none were left. By 1981 it was all over for the PCC street fighters.

    They must be slowing down over there. Any good ancient Egyptian would have wrapped the remains in bandages, buried them in the desert, and then have something to add to the future economy—tourists. Gee ma, look at all the rail cars those people had two thousand years ago!!
