Toyota Corolla KE30 pickup in Europe?

RS Yasu updated their blog with the notion that they are closed between 30th of december and 5th of january. Normally I would say this is not too exciting news, however they did feature a photograph of the KE30B122 pickup in front of their workshop:

It strikes me how much this workshop really looks like an average European house, like for instance in Austria, Germany or Hungary. I was fooled for a few seconds, but of course the pickup doesn’t belong there since Europeans (in contrary of the Americans) are not too fond of pickups.

If you’re interested in the rebuild of this nice KE30B122:

Edit: it is not a KE30, but a Nissan Sunny B122 pickup:
