A 1983 TA63 Toyota Carina GT-TR.
Although the *A6* Carina was introduced in 1981, it wasn't until 1982 you could get the 3T-GTE powered GT-TR Variant.
This one looks awesome in red.. Reminds me of that red Fire-wagon Carina wagon on watanabe's..
(Do your best to ignore that exhaust. Goddamn.. that's a whole lotta muffler!)
Although they've been around for many many years, they're not as popular as their Work Equip equivalents..
..For when you cant decide.
..looks to be in great shape too. love it - it has Turbo written on the hornpad.
The 'TWIN CAM turbo' decal in the rear window is looking a little worn, but still there..! :)
Interestingly, notice the use of two plugs per cylinder.
..All neat and original in there anyway.
Your basic red Toyota sedan.
EDIT, April 2014..
Pretty wild to see this turn up for sale in the USA 18 months later, just about as-is.
<3 Internet. haha
EDIT, December 2014..
..over two years after first seeing it in grainy auction pics, amongst thousands of cars. So great. I LOVE that it is being appreciated, and is looking essentially the same..
