While browsing the interwebs I do encounter a lot of different websites and some of them are more interesting than others. Some others are less interesting but do feature hidden gems in not that interesting things. Take for instance this Toyota Crown S120 brochure which features this model/type overview in one of the last pages:
What strikes me is that about every model of the Toyota Crown is super: Sedan Super Deluxe, Sedan Super Saloon, Sedan Super Saloon Extra, Station Wagon Super Saloon, Hardtop Super Edition, Hardtop Super Saloon and the cherry on top is the Hardtop Super Saloon Extra! How much more super can it get?
Some time ago Daniel O’Grady from Wasabi Cars posted a video about a neglected private car-collection where he mentioned that every car in Japan features a super deluxe somewhere: Read the rest of this entry →
In yesterdays post I touched the subject Bassie en Adriaan already a bit and while searching through all intros to find the correct Prelude (in which I failed) I stumbled upon this alternative movie trailer for the Bassie en Adriaan en de verdwenen kroon (Bassie and Adriaan and the disappeared crown) which is brilliantly done!
No it is not a Toyota Crown that disappears, but actually a genuine crown.
In this trailer you will see the bad guys drive a Lancia Thema, the Dutch police pull a Volvo 340 sideways (yes, they really drove them in the 80s!) and see Adriaan do a batman like U-turn in the Honda Prelude!
I really had to refrain myself from laughing when I watched this video: it is a culture clash between a 70s Japanese car manufacturer (Toyota in this case) and the taste of its Russian owner… I must warn you that the music is fantastic!
A funky Russian song, wirewheels, a flashy blue interior and flaky blue metallic paint just made my day!
