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 →

Family Album Treasures: farting a Toyota Carina AA63

February 16, 2014 in Family Album Treasures

This is probably the most awkward picture I posted so far… It is not only the farting bit but also to have to post such an uncomfortable picture with a Toyota Carina AA63:

I guess this one is just a combination of bad luck and wrong timing…

Family Album Treasures: Toyota Carina GTi16

December 19, 2013 in Family Album Treasures

A proper Family Album Treasure from 1986 for this whole family in their Toyota Carina GTi16 AT160!

The oldest son is giving us a double victory and wife and youngest son are enjoying the sight of daddy taking a picture of his pride! (For you to determine whether that should be the Carina or the family… ;) )

Anyway, also visible in the picture is the wooden (Nardi?) steering wheel, BBS rims and most importantly: the Twin Cam 16 grille badge that indicates this car is powered by a 4A-GE and not to be messed with!

Found at Minkara

Carina Sightings: Toyota Carina AA63 Coupe

December 8, 2013 in carina sightings

I don’t know exactly what it is, but this Toyota Carina AA63 Coupe is one of my favorite Carinas so far:
Carina Sightings best Coupe ever!
Even though this Carina coupe features the single headlights and the original seats have been replaced by a Bride set I still think it looks awesome!
Perhaps it is the dished rims (anyone know what type/manufacturer they are?) or maybe the side skirts? Or maybe both of them combined remind me of the AE86? (and the Carina being the better looker here! ;) )

Carina Sightings: AA63 with a flipfront hood!

September 30, 2013 in Carina sightings

This Toyota Carina AA63 GT-R was actually a corner case: either post it in Carina Sightings or in WTF?!
Toyota Carina AA63 flipfront hood
At first glance the car lowered significantly, features a set of Work Excel rims, rollcage and bucketseats have been installed and the grille is missing. But what is so special about this Carina?

Just have a look at the way the hood opens: Read the rest of this entry →
