Carina Sightings: turbocharged Toyota Carina AA63 in Hot Version 33

October 29, 2015 in carina sightings

Ka Ko posts clips from various Hot Version videos regularly and yesterday he posted up a short clip of a turbocharged Toyota Carina AA63 versus a Toyota Corolla AE92 sedan.

The Carina is wrongly placed as the T15/T16 in the description but in reality it is a resprayed Toyota Carina AA63. Also don’t get fooled over that 4A-GZE that got swapped in from an AE92: it is actually turbocharged! Another way to get a twin cam turbo in a Carina!

The comparison between the two is made by driving them as fast as possible on the Ebisu track: Read the rest of this entry →

Carina Sightings: Devil Toyota Carina AA63 at NCML Drift

January 12, 2015 in carina sightings

It doesn’t state why this Toyota Carina AA63 in a NCML drift video is called the Devil Carina but I think if you watch the video you will get a good hunch why.

Not only does it go sideways just as good as all the AE86s surrounding it, it also gets rediculously close to the white Toyota Corolla Levin AE86 driving up front, over and over again. And damn, those Volk Racing TE37v sure do look awesome on the Toyota Carina AA63!

November 7, 2014 in Uncategorized

I know I have been slacking again on the blog lately… My job was killing me and last Tuesday I gave a presentation at a MySQL oriented conference in London so hardly any time left for anything else. So I promise to make it up to you with this beautiful photo of the N-Style Toyota Carina AA63 taken by Nori Yaro:

My Carina: Carina AA63 double headlights assembly part 1

September 10, 2014 in my carina

After being silent on the subject of my Carina for a while I’ve finally made some more progress: I’m assembling the Carina AA63 double headlights (after stripping and repairing them first):

This is only the right side assembly and unfortunately the left side has to wait a bit. And yes I know: it is definitely not the most beautiful glassfibre repair, but it will be hidden behind the grille anyway.

Why? Well it is waiting for the respray of some new old stock headlight surroundings: Read the rest of this entry →

Carina Sightings: N-Style Toyota Carina AA63 at Speedhunters

April 9, 2014 in carina sightings

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 →
