Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Japanese rustoseums (part two)

Time for some more Japanese rustoseums:
Rusty Toyota Carina TA63 GT-TR
Rusty Toyota Carina TA63 GT-TR

This rusty beaten up Carina GT-TR was found here.

Rusty Toyota Corolla Levin AE85
Rusty Toyota Corolla Levin AE85

I posted this rusty Corolla Levin AE85 before on It is painted in the infamous colorcode 879 and it has got a nice pair of fender mirrors! ;)

Rusty Toyota Starlet KP61

This KP61 Starlet interested me: it is sitting in a junkyard and yet it has a set of Watanabe rims! Who would throw out a pair of wats?
Also funny to see the foliage coming out of the grille! First thought is always that the foliage must have been picked up during a ride, but in reality it is just growing from under the car!

It wasn’t planned to make this a Toyota only rustoseum posting, but next time I’ll make it up by posting only non-Toyota rustoseums!

    man i can see you usually posts pics of old school japanese cars, and believe me, instead they are in the junkyard, they look VERY good against a lot of old jdm cars i see in my country┬┤s streets…

    I live in the Netherlands, but the pictures above were found on a Minkara (Japanese) site.

    BTW: There is a very rusty Honda Civic Mk 2 coming up next Sunday. :)

    I am already very sorry I started the whole DOTS thing… My computer is already clogging up with various rustoseums and other least interesting Japanese cars. Ah well, as long as interesting things keep coming up I’ll continue. :P

    hey do you still have the Starlet KP61? I need the front right side door glass.Some silly thief broke into my car.

      These cars aren’t mine and they were photographed by someone who does car spotting. I think the door glass might be obtainable via classifieds and such.
