Number 163 in my quest to illustrate every Toyota model. This morning I'm fawning over the sweet, sweet photographic skills of @lito_photography, and giving his little 'rolla wagon a bump. The car is cute, but his real calling is with his DSLR. Go check out his stuff!
Three Corollas in three days? I'm on a roll! 10th-gen today; a clean gray sedan owned by @lorolla_10. But the best photos on her Instagram are her little guy posed as a mechanic working on a Mercedes pedal car. Too awesome!
What a sweet 2-door sedan to wrap up all seven of the Corolla variations in the 1980-1983 showroom lineup. That was four styles of the coupe (hardtop, sport coupe, liftback and convertible) and three styles of the sedan (2-door, 4-door and wagon). Seriously, that's almost as ridiculous as this perfect baby blue shoebox. Zip over to @mannyfresholll's IG and drool over the jewel of his 3TC in an immaculate engine compartment. Now I just have a dozen Corolla variations to complete the model's history, I gotta get back to work.
I was always a little confused about Toyota's decision to sell two different Corolla wagons from 1988-1992. The regular Wagon was basically identical to the sedan, but the AllTrac wagon was a completely different car. Whatever the reason, I still see plenty of them on the road in a part of the world where Subaru basically owns the idea of an AWD wagon. @retronics_garage has a beautiful example of exactly how an AE95 should look, along with tons of photos of other interesting cars spotted Down Under.
This is fudging a little bit, since the Corolla Sunrunner actually started life as a hardtop coupe and was transformed into a convertible by Griffith, but since it was sold through Toyota dealers alongside the coupe, sport coupe, liftback, 2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon, I'll let it slide. (Did they have enough Corolla options in the early 80s? Geez!) This pristine example is piloted around Oahu by @eddiewouldgo and sits on a sweet set of old SR5 rims that he's used on various vintage Toys for a quarter of a century!
Keep your eyes peeled and you'll still see the occasional AE82 Corolla hatchback, or her sister, the Chevy Nova. Nik appreciates mostly Land Cruisers, but recently he's been celebrating his little two-toned Rolla Hatch. We get it, @cruiserfever, you love your car... now show us some more Cruiser photos!
Hey Chris! Hope that I got the Advan A3As right, shout if I didn't. Everyone else should check out @78toy4dr's Instagram for some fun modified Hotwheels and other diecast creations.
Back to the early 80's when you could visit a Toyota dealership and find this Corolla hardtop coupe in the showroom, surrounded by three other variants of the Japanese Sprinter (sport coupe, liftback and convertible), three versions of the standard Corolla (2-door sedan, 4-door sedan and wagon) and three more versions of the Corolla Tercel (2-door sedan, 3-door hatchback and 4-door sedan) all in one place. That blows my mind in a world where there is just a single Corolla now. Anyway, props go out to @tokyofresh for his own little yellow hardtop and his plethora of photos of other hardtops.
