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!
First of all their 4 door Skyline R31 gets some bulletholes from an old geezer, then when they stop at a gas station they almost get run over by a RA45/TA45 Carina GT. 😀
Lucky enough the Carina survives well! 😛
Not enough car chases in that part? What about his fourth part with a lot of sideways action by a Cefiro A31:
Now if you really want to know how they end up in a Pontiac Firebird Trans Am and how it ends, you can watch the whole episode here: Abunai Deka full episode
This week we don’t feature an A60 Carina, but the previous generation: a Carina GT coupe. Basically it was the predecessor of the TA61 Carina GT, but it didn’t have the IRS as found on the TA61 yet. IRS was only available for the Celica Camry model, which was basically a facelifted Carina A40 with IRS.
So, why feature the TA45 then? Well, because of a topic on Japanese Nostalgic Car forum about that car. It contains a link to where it is sold and I was stunned by its beauty! I’d say let the pictures (and video) speak for itself…
There was also a video attached showing the passengerside and interior of the car. I took the liberty of downloading the video and uploading it to Youtube and preserve it for future generations:
That gives you a nice impression of the interior: immaculate! But here are some additional pictures of the interior and GT seats of the car: Dashboard of the Carina GT Coupe TA45 GT Seats of the Carina GT Coupe TA45 The GT seats may not be as impressive as the bucket like seats of the third generation Carina, but they sure look comfortable enough while taking on some tight corners. 😉
