Carina Sightings: Another Toyota Carina GT-R AA63 on Speedhunters

Mike Garrett came across another Toyota Carina AA63 in a drift competition. This time he saw it at the HKS Premium day on the Fuji Speedway:

Compare it to the Carina AA63 he spotted before on Tsukuba circuit:

As you can see the Tsukuba Carina is a much more low budget drifter than the Fuji Speedway Carina: less bodyparts, no airdam, bend hood, single wiper, missing headlight and the Fuji Speedway Carina has way less stickers. Personally I like the Tsukuba Carina more eventhough it looks less pretty: it is more beaten up which makes it more charming IMO. On the other hand the Fuji Speedway Carina drifts a much smoother line…
