May 12, 2017 in collections

Oh my. I posted this Celica Supra MA61 wall clock video already two months ago on Youtube! Time to do some catching up again!

My Carina Digital Dashboard wallclock

I have covered this Carina digital dashboard clock in a video some time ago. It is an amazingly rare item that you hardly ever come by, and it took me six long years before I found another one!

What about a Celica Supra Digital Dashboard wallclock?

Since Toyota has made a clock for the Carina, naturally you would expect Toyota to have made similar items for other models. And of course they did: I found this Toyota Celica XX (also known as the Toyota Celica Supra MA61 outside Japan) wall clock for sale on Yahoo Auctions for the mere price of 28000 yen! (about 250 US dollars!) See the video below: Read the rest of this entry →

Toyota Carina wind deflectors [Yahoo Auctions]

March 19, 2016 in auctions yahoo

Earlier this week I spotted a set of original Toyota Carina wind deflectors for sale in an auction:
Toyota Carina wind deflectors
They are interesting for me as these deflectors change the airflow around the windows and if you open your windows only an inch the air will be sucked from your car instead of having a big turbulence creating a racket of noise.

The deflectors weren’t entirely new and one of the rear deflectors even had a part missing: Read the rest of this entry →

Ebay Treasures: a Dutch Prince Skyline S50 on Ebay!

January 2, 2015 in ebay treasures

This really is an Ebay treasure: a genuine Dutch registered Prince Skyline S50! Yet again I received this via Japanse Klassieker group on Facebook, Roland Verheijen posted it on their page:
Ebay Treasures: Prince Skyline S50
I knew they have been sold in (small numbers) in the Netherlands but never had any hope one would turn up for sale once. Well, today one did turn up for sale and it really is a treasure!

Don’t have high hopes for this one as the body is very rusty: Read the rest of this entry →

Auctions Yahoo: Black Limited AE86 gauge cluster

May 16, 2013 in AE86 Trivia, AE86 Trivia, auctions yahoo

Disclaimer: I’m not selling this! I posted this because it MAY interest someone as it is a super rare object. Don’t ask me any questions regarding the object as I do not own it!

If anyone has 40000 yen spare (roughly about 300 euro) you can buy an original Black Limited gauge cluster for your AE86:
Toyota Sprinter Trueno Black Limited AE86 gauge cluster Auctions Yahoo
Four hundred Black Limited cars were made and one of the distinguishing items on the car was an orange gauge cluster. So if you are building your own Black Limited copy you can make it a bit more genuine by buying this cluster. A whole lot better than making your own using an orange marker on your original cluster… 😉

On a sidenote: I missed this one in the AE86 Trivia about the various gauge clusters, so I’ll add this one later on.

You can find the auction here:
Black Limited AE86 gauge cluster for sale at Auctions Yahoo
.
If you need any help buying and importing this cluster to your country, you can use companies like Hayatonka to get them for you. Be aware that the total price can be a bit more than the 300 euros price of the auction. 😛

Carina Sightings: Yellow Carina GT AA63 that is NOT for sale!

March 4, 2013 in carina sightings

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this beautiful yellow Carina GT AA63 for sale on Auctions Yahoo:
Yellow Carina GT AA63 not for sale!
It looked so perfect, immaculate and I just wished I had the money to buy it and ship it to the other side of this planet. But this picture gets even better if you squint your eyes! 😛

So when I translated the auction it stated this at the bottom:
Please stop the questions in English. We will not ship internationally, thank you.
Normally that is not a real problem if you use a man-in-the-middle like Hayatonka, so actually you can still consider it for sale!

Anyway, the strange thing about this car is that it is actually a late GT: more pictures on the next page!

Reverse Fetish: USDM AE86 Gauge Cluster at Auctions Yahoo!

January 28, 2013 in reverse fetish

I’ve posted up a couple of reverse fetishes so far and I even posted an AE86 Gauge cluster before (which was wrongly indicated as EUDM). Japanese like overseas stuff like the Datsun 240K badges or Renault 5 Turbos. So not surprisingly this USDM AE86 Gauge cluster from a US Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86 is currently picking up some serious money on Auctions Yahoo:

It is functional, its speedo goes all the way up to 150mph (240km/h) and it is mirrored in layout. Can you guess what the current price is???
