Merry Chistmas and a happy New Year!

December 24, 2013 in christmas

It almost became a unwritten tradition to post a picture of a certain Toyota Carina with my X-mas wishes and last year was a bit sad. So I decided not to get as corny as my neighbor who sends me a Christmas card including her and her dogs and decided to post this photo I took of a Silvia instead:
Merry Christmas and a happy new year!
So merry Chistmas and a happy New Year!

Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!

Yes, that is no typo:
Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!
Merry Christmas and a rustfree New Year!

My automotive year ended quite badly. What turned out to be a very tiny hole in the rear inner fender on both sides proved to be a true nightmare: the tinworm struck again, ate its way through and instead of a white Christmas I’m actually seeing quite reddish now…
Lucky enough this is the only rust on the whole floorpan of the Carina as it has been creeping from inside out and not the other way around. So to prevent my Carina from becoming a rustoseum I’m having this fixed shortly after New Year and let’s hope it is a rustfree year for everyone! :)

Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

With yesterdays Soarer centercaps I can only do the wishes in this proper way!
Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!

I’m obviously also going to celebrate these events, so I’m not too sure when I’ll be back for my next posting.

Chirstmas: spot the difference!

It may be a bit hard to see, but just try to find what is different within this picture!

Christmas: Tomica Limited 1/64 scale Carina GT-R

December 15, 2011 in christmas

A few days I go I already posted about winning the tail lights and the very same day I received a package from Japan (from a different AY source) containing a set of Soarer Z10 centercaps, Carina mudflaps, Carina brochure and this little yellow 1/64 scale Toyota Carina GT-R:
Tomica Limited Vintage Neo 1/64 scale Carina AA63 GT-R
I got it for a bargain price and did not expect much from it until I read this posting last week and was very impressed by it.

I compared it against the Hotwheels Skyline KPGC110 GT-R I bought some last week and I was shocked by the difference in quality! See also this picture: Read the rest of this entry →
