Now that was interesting. I was sure that Instagram would never reveal to me a Corona liftback owner, but within seconds I found @ashleyantilles and her perfectly-preserved flashback of the early 80s. Not only that, she 's practically a neighbor. Small world.
Number 242 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota variant sold in the US is @el_tipico's rad and ratted out little Corolla wagon.
@singervehicledesign takes a beautiful car and polishes it to perfection. This 911 Targa has been restored to a better-than-new state. Illustrated at the request of @vector_garage who is in the middle of drawing my own collection of motorcycles. Go check out his IG feed and marvel at the beauty within.
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.
It's fun exploring Instagram in the quest to find rare Toyota owners and I meet the coolest guys. I had to convince @junkman356 to get his vintage Crown wagon out of storage for some photos so I could accurately illustrate her. This is number 225 out of a total 265 Toyota variants in my quest to illustrate every model that was ever sold in the US.
Number 217 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota and also the last Supra on the list. This perfect white first-gen liftback is owned by @juicee_man and it appears as though he also owns a white version of EVERY generation of the Supra. Seriously? Every generation? Yup.
I went searching for the most beautiful Celica I could find and this is, without a doubt: The. Car. @chriskim_seacret, mad props and enjoy the art. This is number 215 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota variant to land on US soil.
