Carina Sightings: Carina GT-R AA63 on Speedhunters

November 26, 2008 in carina sightings by banpei

Some of you may already have read it, but Mike Garrett wrote about the HPI Tsukuba meeting on Speedhunters and wrote about a black Carina GT-R

As you can see the Carina is pretty bashed up and misses its front airdam, grille, side indicator lights, and a foglight and one normal light on the left side. The driver must really use the car extensively. :)

It is also very nice to see something different than the mainstream white color.

And what I like most about the report is the following comment by Mike Garrett:
This AA63 Toyota Carina was part of the drifting group. These cars are fairly unknown as far vintage rear-drive Japanese cars go. I’d love to own one someday.
I hope that as well! :)
