Carina Sightings: Joe Manji event in New Zealand

Carina Sightings: Joe Manji event in New Zealand

I read a blog posting last night at 86fighters about the Joe Manji event in New Zealand. Part II followed up later on and both parts feature Carinas. 🙂

First Carina is probably an AA63TA63 with the 4AGE 3T-GTE engine. Its front bumper got replaced for an AE92 front bumper:

The second Carina is a well known TA63 Carina with a 1UZ engine swap and a great history:

The owner (Glenn) did a great job on that Carina! As you can see the 1UZ engine is a great engine to put in a Carina! Unfortunately they are very very hard to get in Europe. 🙁

Update: A video got posted on Youtube:

That Carina is now a very sick car! And that 1UZ sounds brutal!
Great! Now I really want a 1UZ in mine! 🙁

  1. Thanks! 🙂
    I was already doubting about that, but the TA63 is becoming quite rare nowadays… The 3T-GTE is used for swaps and there were more AA63 than TA63 made by Toyota. I’ve corrected it in the posting.
