Spotted: A rusty and rotten, 1978 Celica XX (Double X/Supra)

Sad to see this very early, Celica Supra XX is such bad condition. Aside form the slight shock of seeing this car in this state was the fact that this was my first time to learn that there even was a XX Celica.
This Supra liftback was built in 1978. It has a 1,988cc inline 6 engine.
