Suicide by jet.

These guys got lots of time on their hands to plan their deaths accordingly.

A rare pet

Before Toyota, there was Toyopet.  And here I am confronted with and ultra rare 2 door Crown.  A late 60's model, that came from across the lake.  It's a bit on the rough side, but still nice to look at.  Even though the pictures suggest that it's wheels have been stolen, fear not it's just having it's brakes revived, they're over 40 years old.  This would be a nice candidate for an engine swap.  Some similar to an earlier project, the white dragon wagon.

East Meets East Coast

A fox body Ford Mustang, fitted with an R32 Skyline body kit.  If you're in the east coast and really, really  interested, it's for sale on ebay.  Better hurry it's closing soon.

The Reunion 2012

Way back when I was a very enthusiastic outdoors kind of person.  From going on 2 week expeditions in the backwoods while carrying every I required on my back, to climbing the highest peak in the continental United States (Mt. Whitney). But also being a gearhead, it's rare to mix both.  But when traveling to Mazda Laguna Seca Raceway in Monterey, California for the Monterey Motorsports Reunion; formerly Monterey Historics, I can actually do both.

A Japanese import that's been customized. Dunno if it was done in japan or in canada (that's where the pic was taken). But my guess it's a 4 dr. (AE95) with the rear chopped and customized. A 2 dr (AE92) front end panels added. I wonder if they installed the supercharged engine?

Cadillac powered Toyota

Could it be possible?

 Yes if you put the intake box on your 80's carbed Toyota truck

More Hoshino

Spotted a Honda Accord Wagon, sporting Hoshino Impuls.  They look cool.   If they washed the car it would look amazingly dapper.

While on the subject of Starlets

A reason why Starlet is a wolf in sheep's clothing.  Take that Godzilla!  I still won't buy one.
