Carina Sightings: N-Style Toyota Carina AA63 at Speedhunters

April 9, 2014 in carina sightings by banpei

I have no idea what has gotten into Dino Dalle Carbonare but lately he seems to be very much into the Toyota Carina AA63! He proved this by posting the N-Style Carina earlier this week on Speedhunters:

The N-Style Carina certainly has seen an overhaul since the last time I posted about it: two tone paintscheme, wilder camber and deeper dish!

I certainly like the new two tone paint scheme! Read the rest of this entry →

Carina Sightings: Toyota Carina AA63 Coupe

December 8, 2013 in carina sightings by banpei

I don’t know exactly what it is, but this Toyota Carina AA63 Coupe is one of my favorite Carinas so far:
Carina Sightings best Coupe ever!
Even though this Carina coupe features the single headlights and the original seats have been replaced by a Bride set I still think it looks awesome!
Perhaps it is the dished rims (anyone know what type/manufacturer they are?) or maybe the side skirts? Or maybe both of them combined remind me of the AE86? (and the Carina being the better looker here! ;) )

Found at Minkara

Japanese rustoseums (part fourtytwo)

June 10, 2013 in carina sightings, rustoseums by banpei

Now this is a sad case as this Carina is not rusting…

yet…

You can clearly see some foliage growing out of the car where ever the plants can make their way to a more sunny spot, so why not just take the hole in the transmission tunnel as the quickest way out? Read the rest of this entry →
