Yeah, cool! Enjoy that road trip.

And great cars all these. I can't believe that Supra is 20 years old!
Totally biased towards Japanese made guitars.

Here?s a little Toyota I saw yesterday (at an oldtimer meeting where the missus and I played a little acoustic set).

Me neither. Apparently its from the mid/late 60s and has an 800cc engine, that's all I know.

So Toyota's equivalent of the Honda S800 coupe? Bet it's got a wonderfully revvy engine.

Well, the LS400 is bought, and being made ready for the road trip. It's so much car for so little cash:

It's a barge, for sure, but it's super quiet and that engine is so smooth. I can hardly hear it (although that's a bit of a shame, because it's a V8). Interior feels newer than my 5 year old Aygo. Few niggles and new timing belt to do.

Already getting quite attached to the old thing. :)

You sure can bring back a lot of wine, cheese and other goodies, with that one. :wink:
Have fun on your road trip.

My Gramps had two of those in the old country (Dominican Republic for me), he had a yellow one and a white one. Those things ran for 30 years before he passed and they were sold, they are probably still running. (Sorry no pics).

That is a beautiful TA22 Celica!

Very original and very, very clean. They are becoming very scarce on the roads now.....41 left in the UK.
