Carina Sightings: AA63 drift missile


I found a Carina GT-R bargain on auctions yahoo: it has many modifications, RS Watanabe and Hayashi Street rims and only costs 70000 yen!

From this side it looks quite okay…

But from this angle:

It looks like sh*t!
The tail lights already have been swapped for late type tail lights and even if you are handy with a hammer and chisel you can’t make much of it anymore…

On the positive side: many modifications have been made to this car, including some nice goodies under the hood:

A tower brace, carburetors, 4-1 performance header, trunk battery, MSD ignition, high lift cams and a balanced crankshaft. Apart from that it has camberplates, a roll cage, FC Calipers, bucket seats and many more modifications!

I’d personally say the car is definitely worth it for spares if you can manage to pay the shipping costs. 😉

Carina Sightings: Ironmask’s worst enemy


The person who shot the pictures of this Carina AA63 GT-R is actually a Skyline DR30 fan. He went out to take a look at, as he calls it, the Iron Mask’s worst enemy:
Iron Mask enemy: Carina AA63 GT-R
Iron Mask enemy: Carina AA63 GT-R

It does make sense in some way… Sure the Carina GT-R does looks (about as) intimidating, was produced in the same era, has roughly the same dimensions but it never came with power output near what the FJ20ET produced (the Carina TA63 GT-TR came nearer).

I must say that the metal surrounding on the headlights look very nice on the Carina!

The Hayashi Streets sure look great on this Carina:

And am I seeing this right? Someone made the R in GT-R red? 😀

Carina sightings: diffin Carina GT-R AA63

Those British and Irish laddies never get enough of diffin those JDM cars:

The Carina is still on its original springs and that shows at the front when doing donuts. Also notice how nice a Carina looks on those Hayashi Streets!

The comment by the video poster is fat gut, slow car. Maybe true compared to diffin an AE86 but I’d still rather have the ‘rina. 😉
