Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Carina sightings: spot the Carina A60!

According to the poster of this original 80s footage it should contain a Carina A6.
So, let’s spot the Carina!

It could be at 0:19 or at 0:44 or at 1:03, but IMO all three cars are the same Mark II GX61 Hardtop coupe. Taillights are definitely not Carina and match more or less this Mark II:

I must say that they look quite the same so I understand the mix up.

Video is a bit boring nowadays while back then it was supreme action. Maybe we’re getting used to all that D1 action from Jaan. Nice stock AE86 and Skyline RS-Turbo R30 though!

    That’s NOT a Carina.. It’s an early 80’s Corona GT hardtop coupe, notice the swept rear pillar and sloped rear deck? DOY 😛

    As I wrote: IMO it is not a Carina and probably a GX61 Mark II
