Remembering Japanese cars from the past

Picture tag: laurel c32

Hilarious: Mark II MX41 in Russia

I really had to refrain myself from laughing when I watched this video: it is a culture clash between a 70s Japanese car manufacturer (Toyota in this case) and the taste of its Russian owner… I must warn you that the music is fantastic!

A funky Russian song, wirewheels, a flashy blue interior and flaky blue metallic paint just made my day!

Carina Sightings: Panda Carina coupe AA63

After last weeks sad news some good news: I got word from Arpad that his coupe was spotted with different licenseplates on it, so there is hope he will be reunited with the car! Nevertheless, if you spot it somewhere: don’t hesitate to contact me!

Now to get back on topic: I found this immaculate Panda Carina GT-R coupe for sale on Auctions Yahoo:

The buy-me-now price is at 1000000 yen (13000 US dollar) a bit steep but you will get a whole lot of car for that money!

First of all the car only travelled 110000 kilometer so far, the body is practially rust free (and in very good shape) and is still in its original panda paint with colorcode 041 (Super White III, only available on late models). Second of all the car features an oldskool period correct urethane lip and louvre rear window.

The Carina is lowered with a short stroke set and 12K/8K springs at the front and rear and a two way LSD has been fitted. Unfortunately the mouth watering deep dished Longchamps are not included in the deal…

What is included in the deal is this 20V 4AGE blacktop:

Modified with direct ignition and a Freedom ECU.

Additionally the car also has an AC and powersteering. However the condenser of the AC has broken down, so it can be quite pricey to get it to work again.

I still think 1 Million yen is a bit high for the whole package… But in case you are interested in placing a bid (currently at 400K yen), you can find it here: Panda Carina coupe Auctions Yahoo
