Carina Sightings: Carina GT-TR TA63 by Wasabi Cars

How could I have missed this fantastic video by Wasabi Cars? Or even worse: Daniel even shouted out to me and I only find out two months after he posted up the video on Youtube… How did that happen?

Well first of all I went on holiday around the same time. As you have read after I came back from holiday my son’s birthday came up, then I had to find and buy a suitable car (getting a sapphire blue Civic delivered next week!) and only now two months later I am starting to catch up with all the videos posted on Youtube… Sorry Daniel, will do a better job next time! ;)

Carina Sightings: GT-TR at Garage Goods

From the rear the car looks just as great and do notice all the available cars in the background:

Several Soarers, a Levin, a Trueno Black Limited, Skylines, Silvias, Glorias. Too many cool cars to count!

The interior of the TA63 has been modified with some gauges:

Personally I don’t like gauges and apart from the tach I think they are a bit out of place here…

Last but not least:

A set of deep dish SSR Mk IIs!

For a mere 650,000 yen (almost 8,000 US dollars) it can be yours.
