Old-School TEQ: 1981 Toyota Carina Station wagon (TA49v)
May 30, 2018
This car is a little bit Stance-inspired, which is not familiar ground for me. It's also a rare van/stationwagon version of the A40 series Toyota Carina, which have already become quite thin on the ground.
The A40 Series Carina was built from Aug 1977 to Aug 1981. This Carina station wagon was built in 1981. It has a 1,588cc inline 4 engine.

I've set myself an ambitious target, and that is to unearth all of Japan's rusting, nostalgic gems. It's not going to be easy. They're shy creatures and prefer to remain hidden. And, limited time and funds mean they're likely to stay that way, which would be not cool! <More>
