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…

Familiy Album Treasures: crash your Celica XX in 1987

August 28, 2010 in Familiy Album Treasures

Back in 1987, when I was still in highschool and my dad still drove the Carina wagon this guy crashed his Celica XX into a red car while being chased by the police and drove through a red light.

Of course that is something you should be proud of if you are member of the LawBreak Family…

Japanese rustoseums (part nine)

May 20, 2010 in rustoseums


It has been some time since I posted the last rustoseum, so here are some more! What about this poor GA61 Celica XX? It already looks way beyond reasonable repairs:

It was supposed to be the flagship of the Celcia XX range… What happened? Did the owner think it got out of fashion? At least the 15 inch 6J Celica XX rims look salvageable…

How about this Silvia S13 in the foliage then?

Sure enough its headlights were stripped, but apart from that it still looks quite complete… Maybe still salvageable?

And the last one, a (former) white MR2:

It still looks okay and complete: not too much rust. Now is that picture playing tricks with me or does the car next to it have some bosozoku exhaust pipes??

Commerical time: Mixed bag of Toyota

January 16, 2010 in Commerical time

Got a mixed bag of Toyota commercials from Japan: Starlet KP60 Trans Europe trial, Corona T100, Celica XX mk1, Chaser MX30 and the KE30 saloon!


Even though I live in Europe, in a country next to Germany I still have no idea what the Trans Europe Trial actually is… It must have been something like Toyota wanted to prove the Starlet was an excellent car for European roads, therefore it would certainly be an even better car for the Japanese roads!

The Corona T100 looks like it would have been sophisticated back in a day, but with those features (central warning light, 5mph bumpers) you can even find on BYDs nowadays!

And that Chaser MX30! Of course if you first run it flat out on the saltflats (who put those lines there??) you definitely need to wash your hair!
