Japanese rustoseums (part two)

Time for some more Japanese rustoseums:
Rusty Toyota Carina TA63 GT-TR
Rusty Toyota Carina TA63 GT-TR

This rusty beaten up Carina GT-TR was found here.

Rusty Toyota Corolla Levin AE85
Rusty Toyota Corolla Levin AE85

I posted this rusty Corolla Levin AE85 before on It is painted in the infamous colorcode 879 and it has got a nice pair of fender mirrors! 😉

Rusty Toyota Starlet KP61
Rusty Toyota Starlet KP61

This KP61 Starlet interested me: it is sitting in a junkyard and yet it has a set of Watanabe rims! Who would throw out a pair of wats?
Also funny to see the foliage coming out of the grille! First thought is always that the foliage must have been picked up during a ride, but in reality it is just growing from under the car!

It wasn’t planned to make this a Toyota only rustoseum posting, but next time I’ll make it up by posting only non-Toyota rustoseums!

video: Ferrari versus Mini

You’re probably thinking: wtf? Is he mad or something? A mini versus a Ferrari?
No, I haven’t lost my mind yet and it makes perfectly sense to post this video:

It is an amazing achievement by this Japanese to keep up with that Ferrari (except on the straight) and it is amazing how much faster this Mini is in the cornering sections. This Mini is fast!

It is not the Mini nor the Ferrari that I find interesting: the cars they are passing are! 🙂

@0:23 a Starlet KP61, @0:42 a N2 AE86, @1:11 a Toyota Levin AE86 and a Nissan Sunny B310 coupe, @1:36 he gets passed by a RX7 FD (which he passes later on), @1:46 a Honda Fit (?), @2:13 a third generation Honda Integra, @2:39 another FD and a Toyota 2000gt, he does have some trouble with that Yaris Sport @4:00 and finally passes the Ferrari @4:43. Another oddity: @4:57 a rare VW Golf Mk2.
