Auctions Yahoo: Carina GT-R AA63 tail lights

Today my RSS feed reader provided me two new lots on Auctions Yahoo and in this case it were two kouki (late type) tail lights for the Carina sedan sold for left and right seperately:

The red line under the tail light was only available on the GT, GT-R, GT-T and GT-TR Carina models.

The auctions start at 5800 yen (roughly 58 euros or 74 US dollar) which a fair price for these tail lights in an (almost) immaculate condition! It is easy to get these items through man-in-the-middle companies like Hayatonka.
(do take into account local transportation costs, handling fees and shipping to your doorstep may increase the price dramatically!)

The auctions can be found here:

Auctions Yahoo: Carina van round headlights

Spotted this auction of a full set of Carina van TA67 round headlights yesterday on Auctions Yahoo:

Not only does it include the round headlights and its surroundings, but it also includes the grille. The headlights have been converted with clear lenses and are able to carry H4 (type 4) bulbs or an HID replacement! Ideal to transfer your Carina van (or normal Carina) into a Firevan replica!

This is how it looks on the seller’s Carina: Continue reading

Auctions Yahoo: kouki Carina A60 tail lights

Finally I’ve been able to win a pair of them: the kouki Carina sedan tail lights seem to be made of unobtainium these days! Big thanks to Ewan from Hayatonka!

And as an added bonus: even more kouki headlight surroundings, grille, city lights and indicator lights!
Too bad the package won’t make it before Christmas. :'(

Auctions Yahoo: bought a Carina AA63 on impulse

Presumably you thought I was going nuts and bought a full size yellow Carina AA63 on impulse? Don’t worry: I’m not completely nuts and it is only 1/64th in scale…
Tomica 1/64 Toyota Carina AA63 GT-R
According to the auction this Tomica Limited Vintage TLV-N59a is a yellow Carina 1600 GT-R scale model from the retro series released by Tomica back in 1999. The picture provided with the auction is not resembling the actual product, so I’m really curious what I’ll end up with.

On Google Images I found this little picture: Continue reading

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:

Panda Carina coupe GT-R AA63

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:

Panda Carina coupe GT-R AA63

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
