Carina Sightings: Panda Carina coupe AA63

August 31, 2011 in carina sightings by banpei


After last weeks sad news some good news: I got word from Arpad that his coupe was spotted with different licenseplates on it, so there is hope he will be reunited with the car! Nevertheless, if you spot it somewhere: don’t hesitate to contact me!

Now to get back on topic: I found this immaculate Panda Carina GT-R coupe for sale on Auctions Yahoo:

The buy-me-now price is at 1000000 yen (13000 US dollar) a bit steep but you will get a whole lot of car for that money!

First of all the car only travelled 110000 kilometer so far, the body is practially rust free (and in very good shape) and is still in its original panda paint with colorcode 041 (Super White III, only available on late models). Second of all the car features an oldskool period correct urethane lip and louvre rear window.

The Carina is lowered with a short stroke set and 12K/8K springs at the front and rear and a two way LSD has been fitted. Unfortunately the mouth watering deep dished Longchamps are not included in the deal…

What is included in the deal is this 20V 4AGE blacktop:

Modified with direct ignition and a Freedom ECU.

Additionally the car also has an AC and powersteering. However the condenser of the AC has broken down, so it can be quite pricey to get it to work again.

I still think 1 Million yen is a bit high for the whole package… But in case you are interested in placing a bid (currently at 400K yen), you can find it here: Panda Carina coupe Auctions Yahoo

Random: AE86 lips on a KE70 wagon

August 30, 2011 in random by banpei

Adding the zenki Levin AE86 bumper and lip were a very good improvement by the owner of this KE70 wagon.

Even the original Apex Twin Cam seats and the panda paint scheme seems to be a nice fit! :P

Commerical time: Italian lion in Germany

August 29, 2011 in Commerical time by banpei

Obviously Subaru named the Leone after the Leo constellation in the Zodiac and it was their best selling car for 23 years (when it got replaced by the Impreza). The name Leone came from the Italian word for Lion but strangely enough the commercial on TV showed this Italian named car in a German environment:


Maybe the Lion likes German roads better?
