A bug-eyed, 3-door KP61 Toyota Starlet S from 1979

January 20, 2013

I don't recall ever seeing these Toyota hatches growing up in Australia, so it's hard for me to call them popular. They do indeed seem to be popular though, with or without the race-track inspired, flared wheel-arches.

The P60 Series Starlet was built from Feb 1978 to Oct 1984. This Starlet Hatchback was built in 1979. It has a 1,290cc inline 4 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>
