Okay, I have to admit: I cheated here… I did not spot this Carina at all. Instead David emailed some days ago me he has an extensive Toyota collection including a good looking Carina TA60:
Polish Carina TA60
So I cheated a bit to keep the DOTS in the Carina Week theme.

David’s Carina is a 1983 2T powered Carina with a manual gearbox.
And the good news: David’s Carina is for sale for only 700 euros! A bargain!
Drop me an email if you want to get in touch with him!

Now this is a tough choice: shall I take this Carina wagon or Yamaha SRX for a spin?
Take the Yamaha SRX or Carina Wagon for a spin
Even though most sane people would say the Yamaha I would personally prefer the Carina wagon above it. 😉
Sidenotes: according to the source the round headlights were swapped for the quad square types. The rims are PG type Racingforg rims.

BTW: Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone!

I found this just-after-clipping-point drift image of the Carina AA63 at the Inland Sea round of the MSC and it blew my mind away:
Carina AA63 at MSC
The blog I found it on gave it the title Masterpiece. I think he hit the hammer on the head with that title! 😉

A Carina AA63 drifting on Ebisu Circuit West Course followed by two zenki Levin AE86s, I couldn’t have thought of a better lineup myself!
Carina drifting in the nineties
The picture was taken in the mid nineties when drifting was taking a huge ramp-up and Initial D just skyrocketed in sales. The AE86 was suddenly a very popular car and the Carina was a very undervalued car. Lucky enough someone got the sanity to buy this AA63 and drift the hell out of it!
Small detail: the last AE86 was powered by a 7A-GZE. Pretty radical mod back in those days! 😉
