Remembering Japanese cars from the past

DOTS: Super Salooned Crown MS85

Spotting old J-tin on the streets is a big hobby of mine and most of the time I can see in a split second that there is some old Japanese car lurking around in a parkinglot. Imagine the surprise when I walked out of the office and found this good looking dark grey Toyota Crown Super Saloon parked across the street:

At the same time I was talking to someone on the phone and no other camera on me. So I tried to break off the conversation as quickly as possible and take a few quick snapshots with the phonecam.

Here is another picture where I got up close:

The 2600 on the grille means it is the 4M-E engine. The Crown was first time registered in mid 1979 meaning it was one of the last Crowns of the S80/S100 series.
I really wonder who would drive this land-yacht to my office! ;)

    heb gisteren een toyota crown op de kop getikt. Was ik aan het kijken op internet voor wat meer informatie of een forum, kom ik deze website met een crown tegen. Laat het juist deze auto zijn die ik heb gekocht! Geweldige bak en technisch goed. Plaatwerk moet een keer worden gespoten, chassis is helemaal keihard! Flink aantal reservedelen en zelfs een complete automaatbak als spareparts erbij. Gaan we wat moois van maken!
