Irian Jaya: Toyota Mark II

It may sound weird but this is the only X60/X70/X80/X90 I was able to photograph… I spotted many many on the roads around Jayapura but every time either the van or the car was driving too quick to photograph.

On our way from Jayapura to lake Sentani we drove behind a white Toyota Mark II and at some junction it finally took the other bend and I was finally able to make a proper photo of it.

Don’t get tricked by the exhaust: that’s the exhaust of a moped driving behind the Mark II. 😉

Random: beautifully rebuilt Toyota Mark II RX12

While JNC blog is still offline I started to search for the answer why the blog is offline on their forum. While doing so I stumbled upon RSilva’s beautifully restored Mark II:

The photography is astonishing: the retro look really fits both the model and the car! The photographer is probably either him or a family member since they share partly the same name. You can find more pictures of this beautiful Mark II either in the topic on JNC forum or on Filipe da Silva’s portfolio .

Japanese rustoseums (part five)

Time for some more rust(oseums)!

Let’s start with this Toyota Mark II Grande GX81:

It might have been stolen and dumped in the middle of nowhere after they beaten up this Mark II enough… Bit of a shame though: it is the Mark II Grande model, so it is the top of the line model…

What about this Cedric Y31?

It looks like this hardtop model is still in perfectly good health! Just parked somewhere in the foliage and left there for ages… Or could it be that it was parked in an open space and the foliage just grew around it? 😛

Rusty Nissan 521 pickup truck

Now even if this 1970 or 1971 Nissan 521 is quite rusty, it may still be in use! Tires aren’t flat yet and judging from headrest on the driver seat it must have been replaced some time ago. It is clear that the model is the 521 since the grille has the four horizontal bars. This did not feature on the 520 models, but only on the 521 model.

All three pictures were taken from the usual place:

Japanese rustoseums (part four)

It is time for some more rustoseums! 🙂

Let’s start with this four door Nissan Skyline sedan:

As you can see it must have had some really big fender extenders which now have been removed. Would that mean the fender extenders were considered more expensive than the Skyline?

What about a nice Toyota Mark II X7 wagon with some plants on it?

Is it actually going to be used as a flowerbed? Or did the owner intend it to grow into a Crown MS120 wagon?

Somehow I always smile when I see these third generation Honda Accords:

The front of the car really resembles the Trueno. Of course the bumper is a bit different, but it is styled closer to a Trueno than the Silvia S12! Sad to see this example without its eyes…

A really (c)rusty Corolla KE30:

And it has got the great looking hubcaps!

Personally I thought this was a first generation Cedric 130, but the poster of the picture says it is actually a Isuzu Bellet sedan:

Bellet sedan? Were those actually made??
