Carina Sightings: Brazilian Carina CA67V

If you expected the JDM Trivia #3: I’m sorry but this week was one where I stressed out too much and I simply haven’t had the time to narrate the JDM Trivia #3 yet. Will come in a couple of days… 😉
So instead I have found something way better: the only Toyota Carina CA67V in Brazil just got featured by Jason Torchinsky’s Brazilian counterpart who is named Renato Bellote:
Carina Sightings: Carina CA67V Garagem do Bellote
It is great to see someone bought it who appreciates it, added JDM fender mirrors, the Japanese rising sun on the fuel filler cap, a set of deep dished Centerline rims and a set of mudflaps. I think the (new) owner is actually driving the Carina at 8:05 in the video.

Garagem do Bellote

Even though my stepmother is Brazilian I can’t understand the language very well. To be honest: I understand more from the average Japanese Best Motoring video than all the things Renato Bellote said about this Toyota Carina CA67V van. What I do get is that the shows name Garagem do Bellote means Bellote’s Garage.

Carina Sightings: the only Carina in Brazil!

This Carina only travelled 120000 kilometers so far and is almost like new!

Tulio told me this is most probably the only Carina in Brazil as up till the 90s import cars were forbidden unless you were a diplomat and imported the car yourself. Probably a Japanese diplomat imported this car, perhaps as a vehicle for the embassy?

The interior still looks immaculate after 26 years: Read the rest of this entry →
