DOTS: Polish Carina TA60

December 26, 2010 in dots by banpei

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:

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!

Family Album Treasures: take the Carina Wagon or Yamaha SRX for a spin

December 25, 2010 in Family Album Treasures by banpei

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
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!

Hilarious: Carina A60 ads

December 24, 2010 in hilarious by banpei


To stay in the Carina Week spirits I’ve made a listing of all Carina A60 ads. Somehow they are just as wacky as all the other hilarious postings!

The puppy saving Twincam Turbo ad with Sonny Chiba:

The Carina Roadrunner II SG (twice) and the Carina Jeune:

The 1981 Carina AA60 (probably a Carina SG):

Another version of the hilarious Carina Twincam Turbo ad with Sonny Chiba, followed by another Carina Roadrunner II ad:

The Carina My Road:


This lady acts as if she is getting married in it! :D
Well I did in mine! ;)

And as last another Jeune ad:


Even though the rear bumper looks retarded it is still high on my want list because of that ancient car backup system that indicates how far away you are from various objects (like annoying little girls).

Carina week: Carina AA63 at MSC

December 23, 2010 in carina week by banpei

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:

The blog I found it on gave it the title Masterpiece. I think he hit the hammer on the head with that title! ;)
