Carina Sightings: Toyota Carina ST at Paris-Dakar

February 21, 2015 in carina sightings

Almost seven years ago I posted about Masaru Kubota’s and Masahiro Uchida’s Toyota Carina ST joining the Paris-Dakar rally in 1982 and 1983 and today I stumbled upon this amazing photo of the very same Carina:
Carina Sightings: Masaru Kubota Toyota Carina ST AA60 Paris Dakar
To be honest: I’m speechless here. So much awesomeness being pushed out of that boxy four door sedan by team ACP!

I think the photo is part of an unknown Toyota and/or Carina brochure as it states “…across the burning sands of the Sahara…” and underneath that “turn to center pages”. This indicates there are some center pages (brochures?) with more of this. I hope I will somehow uncover this in the future.
