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

August 22, 2012

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.

How does winning stuff sound?

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>
