Toyota Crown Wagon S80

It is true that after a long time without writing the blog, writing interesting topics is not easy at all. More certain is that the content search today is much more easy that never was before, today everything is available to the user with minimal searching through the deservedly popular Google.

For me telling the truth, today is no longer as it was yesterday, I no longer live in that wonderful place called Japan. Here in Spain things do not have the same interest for me personally but certainly not much less in content of interest when about the r32taka refers.

It does not mean what I just mentioned, I do have thousands of photos, some of them arbitrary about anything related to Japan. Among them I found this Toyota Crown Wagon S80.

I remember having found it in the lakes around Mount Fuji during an excursion to watch closely the volcano. I think it was the last day of stay around Mount Fuji when being in the parking lot drinking coffee I spot this Toyota Crown.

The Crown has essentially the American spirit of the wagon of seventies American Wagons, not only by the yellow inspired by Mooneyes but also for the wheels and tyres. It has not even reduced the ground clearance.

The double rear wiper is a very particular detail in this model, but certainly is still more, the rear registration plate holder saying clearly: think in yellow.

Without a single JDM detail on this Crown, I think the owner managed to fully reflect his style and make it totally personal.

Sometimes when internet is full of similar cars with the same style, I think there must be a place where all car lovers have to appear. In this case I think this Crown deserves a place in the internet. The owner had a clear idea about his project, and has also managed to materialize it without a super economic cost. Cars are made to enjoy and customize them but not everyone has to follow the same patterns and this Toyota owner make a perfect example.

Small cars, are you in?

In most countries specially America and also Europe small cars are not too popular when talking about performance, racing or today’s stance movement. But when we talk about small cars, and as many other times, Japan made again a revolution back in the days.

Japanese case is the most obvious, when car space is reduced, the need of a small car increase at the top list. As you well know Japan also have special regulation for super small cars best known as Kei Cars, but today is not the case. Continue reading Small cars, are you in?

Spotted in 金谷 (Kanaya)

Kanaya is located in the Chiba prefecture. It is a small town by the beach. Mostly are old fisher men, a couple of うどん (udon) restaurants and the sporadic traffic by road.

I am remembering a lot of that town and I am really thinking to write a post about this peaceful town. But today there is no time for tourism or roundtrips this will some other day. I will happy if you take some time to appreciate this Hilux and dedicate today’s post to the owner of the Hilux you can see below. Internet is so big but I know sometimes can be so small and who knows if the owner is a regular reader.

Supra is still cool

We often forgot the well known Toyota Supra because in nowadays  Nissan, classic cars and any other variants or tendencies catch all the attention and almost all the blogs and magazines do post stuff like that. It is true that we also do :-p but is important to remember that the Supra is still there in the roads and to me it still continues impacting me as the first day I seen one.
