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. 😉
Nothing much to tell about this Toyota Corolla EE80 except I passed it when I had picked up a Helios 59mm lens just minutes before. So of course I had to try it on the first thing I saw:

Pretty nice, crisp and sharp, isn’t it? 😛
I know it sounds a bit weird dissing the AE86, but I had a very good laugh when I watched this US commercial of the new Toyota Corolla GT-S AE86: it is cheesy, it is very US and it even has a (double) Toyota jump in the end!
It takes guts to redesign one of the worlds most popular cars! (eclipse and lightning sound!)
Introducing the new Toyota Corolla…reborn!
This sports liftback was reborn to please you with its balanced handling!
Reborn to please your friends with its surprising performance!
Reborn to please anyone with its low Toyota price!
The 1984 Toyota Corolla sports liftback!
Reborn to please the world! (another eclipse and lightning sound!)
Okay I admit: they were right about the car: it surely pleased me with its handling, it surely did please my friends with its surprising performance, it surely had a very low price and apart from me it also did please the world by featuring as main car in Initial D! 😀
Last weekend Japanese Nostalgic Blog was featuring Michael John Grist’s page with various Japanese ruins (haikyo). One of them was this rusty AE91 Corolla sedan at Tama lake:

The corolla must have been there for ages now: it is completely eaten by the foliage and the inside is covered in moss.
