This Toyota Crown hardtop coupé MS75 (or MS70) is a photo on the back of a record sleeve. The record in question is Char’s 1978 album Thrill. By 1978 this Crown could only have been at most 7 years old as it’s the pre-facelift model!Continue reading
Time to share some emblems, decals and sticker close ups!
Toyota Crown MS75 emblem
This Crown emblem was on the bumper of a Crown hardtop coupe MS75. I love the bonkers design of this whale Crown and certainly small details like this little Crown logo…
Another Crown detail:
Toyota Crown MS56 emblem
The Crown emblem is placed on the sill just between the two hinges of the rear door. Yes, it has a rear door!
Datsun 2400 Super Six emblem
The Datsun 2400 (aka the Nissan Cedric 130 in Japan) may look like a very square boxy thing, but in fact it contains very tiny little details like this small fin to create a distinction between the rear fender and the trunk.
Almost the same emblem, but then on the grille:
Datsun 2400 Super Six grille emblem
Tried to make the depth of field as low as possible and yet still make it readable. The Cedric emblem is almost fully blurred out.
Another example of depth of field on the Datsun 2400 Super Six:
Datsun 2400 Super Six silhouette
The middle point of the grille has got full focus, but everything around it is blurred out. I actually had two variants of this photo: with and without people walking in the background. Somehow I liked the one with people in the background better!
Nissan Laurel C32 hardtop sedan Medalist
A bit more modern is the logo of this Nissan Laurel C32 hardtop sedan Medalist. Lots of fake chrome on the grille making lots of bling-bling!
Suzuki Swift GTi Twin Cam 16 SA-413
Even more modern are the sticker based decals on a Suzuki Swift GTi Twin Cam 16 (aka Cultus GTi). I was especially interested in the design of the Twin Cam decal because I’m selling Toyota AE86 Twin Cam 16 decals and they differ only a slight bit.
One more post on the JCS coming up this week and then I’ll be done with it. 😉
In the meanwhile more photos will appear on my Flickr account.
