DOTS: Celica’s like brother and sister

DOTS: Celica’s like brother and sister

Some time ago I saw a red Celica ST in the TACN magazine which looked very very familiar… When I saw the license plate I knew I did see it somewhere before… But then with different rims… The day after I knew where I saw it:
Brother and sister: two Toyota Celica ST AT180s
Brother and sister: two Toyota Celica ST AT180s

Right down the street, literally: it is parked one block away from my house! 😀

That evening I compared it with the one in the magazine and found out that it is indeed almost the same: the license plate is off by one number:
Brother and sister: two Toyota Celica ST AT180s
Brother and sister: two Toyota Celica ST AT180s

In the Netherlands we have incremental license plates (no vanity plates!) and the plate says something about when the car was registered with that plate. In this case both cars were bought on the same day and probably at the same dealer. Maybe they were even bought by a brother and sister. 😉

At the Japan Classic Sunday I spotted the second car and tried to find the owner. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to find him, had a chat with the owner of the neighbouring car and took a picture of the car with the intention to post it up here in the DOTS. 😉
