August 5, 2011 in irian jaya


On the day of arrival I took a small stroll around the hotel area and encountered these two touge monsters!

On the left a Corona T120 sedan with … rims and on the right a two door Corolla KE35 on RS Waranabe rims with a bit more wild modifications than the Corona.

I had the pleasure of seeing the Corolla pass by for work on another morning stroll and its raspy exhaust noise was as enjoyable as the looks of it.

On the last day I made another morning stroll but did not meet the owner so I just put a Bosozoku Style sticker under the windshield wipers of both cars. 😉

Bali: immaculate Corolla KE70 passing by

Near where I spotted the Longchamped Familia I also saw a Corolla KE70 coming the opposite way. I turned around, followed it for a while hoping it would stop. But I gave up after a couple of kilometers and stopped for a drink. Luck turned and another immaculate Corolla KE70 came my way:

Since I has stopped I had all the time of the world to take a couple of snapshots of the KE70! :)

No idea what wheels it is on, but they surely match the oldskool rolla!

Japanese rustoseums (part twentyfour)

This time rusty J-tin from the old world: a Dutch Toyota Corolla KE20 crumbling away next to a B-road. The Corolla appears to be in a reasonable state, but since it has been parked there for years now I fear the worst. Unless someone pays a ridiculous amount of money the owners will leave it there till it has merged together with the soil…

I passed this rusty rolla many many times but never actually stopped to take a picture of it. The picture was taken by Dutch Toyota Club board-member Marco when he passed it. Since he already took the picture it saves me the trouble of taking my own. 😉

Even though the AE86 was the most wanted Corolla during the last two decades, the AE82 was even more wanted in the decade before that: girls just loooooved them:

Now how many girls can you stuff in your hachi-roku? I only managed to get to three. 😉
