Old School Shakotan: Toyota Carina ST Hardtop (TA41)

August 29, 2020

Toyota Carina Hardtops sit very high on the want-to-see list, but of the 2nd and 3rd generation Carina 2-doors, I have seen a one, and this is it! It may not be a GT, but it looks as cool as any other A40-series Carina I've seen, so who cares. The owner doesn't bust out his 12T powered hardtop too often.

The A40 Series Carina was built from Aug 1977 to Aug 1981. This Carina hardtop coupe was built in 1980. It has a 1,588cc 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>
