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 →

Hilarious: Toyota Celica Supra Mk2 parking fail

January 2, 2015 in hilarious

While doing some research on the Toyota Celica Supra mk2 (aka Toyota Celica XX in Japan) I found this hilarious photo:
Toyota Celica Supra Mk II MA61 parking fail
There is a Toyota Celica Supra mk2 P-Type parked on top of the last model Mazda Protegé (aka Mazda 323 and Mazda Familia) sedan in a typical parking lot. It is clearly a face-lifted P-type (Performance type) Celica Supra as it features the dished 7 inch wide Celica Supra wheels, the overfenders and the wraparound front indicators. It could be a MA61 or MA67 (sources differ on this matter) but it clearly is (or was) a mint Toyota Celica Supra mk2.

Now what went wrong here? Did the owner just confuse the pedals? Or did he/she try to conquer the Mazda Protegé? Or did he/she tried to park sideways? We’ll probably never know…

My Carina: Celica Supra seats upgrade

November 13, 2014 in my carina

I have always fancied the Toyota Corolla AE86 or Toyota Celica Supra seats as they are quite comfortable for OEM factory seats and still give enough support at the thighs and back when cornering.
My Carina: Celica Supra seat upgrade
In contrast the OEM Toyota Carina TA60 seats feels more like sitting on a buck of a carriage: too high and no support to be expected from any side. I regularly bumped by head against the ceiling if I took a speedbump too fast.

You probably get what I mean if you compare the two different seats with each other: Read the rest of this entry →

WTF: Celica Supra MA61 cabrio

July 14, 2013 in wtf

I have seen a couple of topless Toyota Celica AA63 before, but never a Celica Supra mark II. That was until now…
WTF: Toyota Celica Supra MA62 cabrio
Yes, someone chopped off the roof of this Celcia Supra MA61. Or even better: someone did this professionally!

Now the most interesting part of this car is the rear: Read the rest of this entry →

Count the Celica XX-es!

February 11, 2012 in count

I guess parking your Celica XX (Celica Supra Mk II outside Japan) at the JCCA New Year Meeting doesn’t really make you feel you are driving a unique car…
Count the Celica XX-es
Even worse: they all look the same!
Can you count how many are lined up here?

WTF: Celica got a bad nosejob!

January 10, 2012 in WTF

I know it is a photoshop, but it is a very scary photoshop: a two door Celica coupe mated with a Celica XX (a.k.a. Celica Supra) nose!
Bad nosejob Celica XX TA63
I know the Celica XX is actually a lengthened three door Celica hatchback but somehow that looks totally right and this two door looks totally wrong.
