A new feature shamelessly inspired by Jalopnik: Down on the Street! Also shortened as DOTS. 😉
Even though Jalopnik is posting about every car they can take a picture of I will try to limit myself to special or old JDM tin.
I will kick off with this nice Toyota Celica Supra MA61 parked near the office of my work. For a while I spotted it on a daily basis and when I finally did bring along a small pocket camera it wasn’t there anymore. Lucky enough it re-appeared only once and I shot a couple of pictures.
DOTS: 1985 Toyota Celica Supra MA61 with 5M-GE engine
When I returned home and put the pictures on my laptop I noticed almost all pictures were crap. The camera is an old small pocket size camera so it just takes 3 or 4 pictures and averages them, resulting in only two “okay” picutures. I noticed this after already taking a lot of pictures of other cars… I think I’ll have to buy a new pocket size camera with some better capabilities than this one. 🙁
The Celica Supra is a facelifted model featuring the 5M-GE, factory extended fenders and 14 inch 7J rims. In other words: the most desirable of the Celica Supra MK2! 😉
The exterior used to be better than this, especially when I first saw it. Back then it was a low mileage car and the interior still looked stunning. When I took these pictures it looked a bit less “out of the showroom” than before, but it still looked very well for its age!
I haven’t seen the Celica Supra ever since, but I suspect it was owned by the same person leaving a note under the windshield wiper of my Trueno a few years ago. 😉
