Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Carina sightings: Russian Carina TA63 sedan

While browsing some pictures of old JDM tin I found a topic on a Russian forum about old Japanese cars in Russia. One of its members owns this great white Carina GT-TR TA63 sedan:

Somehow the wide Russian plate really makes it look more bad than the tinted windows! (???)

The Carina only travelled 162002 kilometers so far:
162002 km on the odometer

And according the owner the 3T-GTE engine is quite powerful. Of course, anything in such lightweight car feels powerful. ;)

Cruise computer, Aircon, autoreverse tapedeck, sunroof!

And the options just keep on going:
electric windows, electric mirrors, cruise computer, air conditioner, gidrach (?) power steering, electricity boards, sunroof, LSD, all disc brakes, the music on 5 speakers (4 + subwoofer), illumination of the driver’s seat and the ignition lock at night

If you are interested in the enormous amount of late 70s and early 80s JDM tin in Russia, see here:
