I made a tough decision last Monday: my Carina is for sale!
The reason why? Well I got an offer for a (project) car that I can’t refuse. 😉
My goal is to sell the whole as one lot, but if some buyer decides not to buy all the parts/JDM stuff I’ll put that here for sale seperately. So what does the whole package include?
Toyota Carina 1.6 DX TA60 Automatic
Built: 1982 (July)
Color: white (cream)
Mileage: 91874 km
Interior: black/cream white
The Carina has always had its checkups at a Toyota dealer and looks great for its age, but naturally there are some small points of attention: white stains on the windshield (outside viewing range so no MOT problem), rust on C-pilar near the left rear door, small parking dent on the right rear door but there is no scratch in the paint (some unknown person bumped into mine on a parkinglot and left without leaving a note).
The car has APK (Dutch MOT) till 7th of July 2013, exhaust has been replaced three years ago, waterpump last year and the car had its 90000 km checkup at the Toyota dealer October last year.
During the 90000 km checkup rust was revealed in the rear inner fenders and early 2013 this has been professionally fixed (by 2mmm sheetmetal) and the floorpan is now solid and rust free.
APK will naturally be prolonged by 2 years.

Notice 2021: This Datsun 240K GT advertisement was over 10 years ago! It’s no use leaving a comment or emailing me if it’s still for sale!
The Doctor sent me about a week ago a link to a Belgian auction site. When I clicked on it my heart skipped a beat: there was a genuine Belgian Datsun 240K for sale! As some of you might know: the Datsun 240K GT is basically a Nissan Skyline C110 with a L24 engine!

When I looked at the biddings I immediately saw it was far beyond reach for me: the highest bid was already at 12000 euros (16500 US dollars).
Apart from the 280ZX rims it appears to be completely original:

I must add that the original wheels are not that beautiful, but if these 280ZX rims are fitted the Skyline C110 should be lowered a few inches as well. 😉
Judging from the thick layer of durst the 240K must have been a barn-find and most importantly the interior appears to have survived the time machine!

The seller states that it could easily be transformed into a GT-R, probably to boost the sales price. That last part was apparently very successful.

I found this damn nice Hungarian Nissan Gloria hardtop 430 for sale on Autoscout:
For sale: damn nice Nissan Gloria 430
Also all pictures of the Gloria are just as beautiful as the Gloria itself! I didn’t even know that Nissan actually sold the 430 in Europe! Price is not even touching 6K euros, so a definite want! 🙂
Only drawback is that all these images of what I could do with it keep popping up in my head… Something like Team Madonna did for instance… So maybe a no go for me…

The car has is a 4th generation Honda Civic with aftermarket alloy wheels, sports exhaust and hatch spoiler. The red color has faded just a little bit, but it should be no problem for future owners to get its initial bright red color back:

It was always parked in a really nice and quiet neighborhood (Rotterdam Charlois), so no parking damage or dents:

And as you can see the sports exhaust is still like new:

And only a small vermin problem:

Price: 5000 euros (with vermin) or ONO

For those people who can’t read Dutch: the street this car is parked in suffers from a plague of rare caterpillars. The public services of Rotterdam refuse to do anything about it because the caterpillars will disappear within 4 weeks anyway. Apparently this car is the first victim of the caterpillars.
