Carina Sightings: 1994 Toyota Carina GT meeting

What would a Toyota Carina GT meeting look like in 1994? Well these photos were taken in 1994 at a Carina meeting somewhere in the Saitama Prefecture:

All Carinas are GT models and all except one (RA45 18R-G) are 2T-G powered. How bizarre is that? I would say that’s pretty epic as the 2T-G versions of the third generation are now close to extinct!

ITT2012: Shakotan Corolla KE20

Thomas’ (aka The Doctor) Corolla KE20 started out as a Belgian rally modified Corolla KE20 and after blowing up his engine twice he decided to take it off the road and rebuild it from the ground up again!

Judging from the amount of stuff around the Luce Rotary it must have been there for ages! There is even a pair of hedge shears on top of it! Apparently the owner of this RX4 didn’t have the time to repair or rebuild it, so it is currently gathering great amounts of dust and other junk!

How can you let such a rare car rust away? The foliage is even growing through the trunk outside! Apparently someone thought it would be fruitful to park his old Trueno in his front yard and hope its 2T-G will grow by itself!

Last but not least, behold the rust on this Daihatsu Mira L70:

There is nothing fancy about this car, but I thought the massive amount of rust looked kind of beautiful!

Found at Toyota80’s and White peach’s photozou.
