DOTS: Polish Carina TA60

Okay, I have to admit: I cheated here… I did not spot this Carina at all. Instead David emailed some days ago me he has an extensive Toyota collection including a good looking Carina TA60:

So I cheated a bit to keep the DOTS in the Carina Week theme. :(

David’s Carina is a 1983 2T powered Carina with a manual gearbox.
And the good news: David’s Carina is for sale for only 700 euros! A bargain!

Carina Sightings: drifting in the nineties

A Carina AA63 drifting on Ebisu Circuit West Course followed by two zenki Levin AE86s, I couldn’t have thought of a better lineup myself!

The picture was taken in the mid nineties when drifting was taking a huge ramp-up and Initial D just skyrocketed in sales. The AE86 was suddenly a very popular car and the Carina was a very undervalued car. Lucky enough someone got the sanity to buy this AA63 and drift the hell out of it!

Small detail: the last AE86 was powered by a 7A-GZE. Pretty radical mod back in those days! ;)
