I'm so close to the end of my Toyota illustration project that it's all I want to draw, but when a friend needed some ideas for his BWM 2002 I was forced to go online for fresh examples. I stumbled across @oszkarbacsi and some photos of a sweet little 2002 that he worked on.
Are there FJ40s everywhere? Here in Portland they are a common sight, scattered throughout the city like pepperoni on a pizza. Some are crusty, sure, but this original specimen looked nearly perfect. It checks all the right boxes.
Number 229 out of 264 Toyota variants knocked from the list. @n.k_crown proudly rocks this Crown wagon and judging from the photos on his Instagram account he displays her at every show in the Shizuoka prefecture of Japan, and beyond.
I was super close to buying one of these a few years ago and I regret not snatching it up. No worries, because I can just drool over @bachmania's beautiful coupe, which is nicer than would have ever been anyway! Number 207 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota sold in the US, just another 54 to go!
It's my experience that nobody can own a single Tiara. A Portland-local has a few sedans and now I've run across Australian @spud_li, who has a wagon AND a ute. When you want to make sure that nobody else on the road is driving the same car that you are I guess you just buy all of them, right?
New neighbors just moved in down the street and with them came a beautiful classic that I had never seen before. There are a ton of old Scouts running around Portland, but I don't think I've ever seen an International Harverster Travelall... especially in one that looks like it just rolled out of the factory. I'm going to carry a small framed print over and welcome them to the neighborhood.
I'm going wagon happy this week. Third vintage Toyota wagon I've done in the last seven days and number 188 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota sold in the states. Featured today is the third-generation Crown wagon running around South Australia by @_brokenrecord.
I finally snuck this into my mix. My neighbor has this rad little stepvan and I never knew what it was until today. I typed in "aluminum delivery van" and it didn't take more than a few seconds to learn the history of these indestrictuble rigs. It seems that most of these still exist as they were designed to last for decades and the body will never rust. Neat!
