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 →

Carina Sightings: Flipfront hood Carina AA63 for sale!

November 23, 2013 in Carina sightings

Sorry to share it this late, but I only just spotted the Flipfront hood Carina AA63 for sale and the auction ends in the next 18 hours! So be quick!
Carina AA63 Flipfront hood for sale!
Even though it now features deep dished RS Watanabe rims instead of the even more rare Work Excel rims it is the same. Also the cancellation of the rear door handles makes it clear they are the same!

This photo really gives a good view on how the flipfront hood has been mounted: 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:

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???
