I was nine years old and I remember waiting in line at the movie theater to see Back to the Future on opening day. Time travel in the movie wasn't the only magic because time has travelled with me since that day and every ounce of excitement still remains when I watch it.
Toyota number 252 in my quest to illustrate all 263 variants sold in the US. Check out @wolf.coast's new 1980 Celica, just purchased about a week ago. Super clean!
Troopie! I got to drive one of these around on Fraser Islend in Australia a few years ago and it was a blast. I can't imagine having one in the garage ready for adventure at any moment. Just ask @big_red_troopy how awesome it is!
Toyota number 246 in my quest to illustrate every variant ever sold in the US. Let's say hi to @sancho_kac and his Celica liftback. It looks like a work in progress and I'll be following along to see how it turns out.
Scratch the Cressida off my list of Toyotas because @be4ver's wagon is the last one. This marks 244 variants out of 260. The light at the end of the tunnel is getting brighter! Adam, I hope you don't mind that I installed matching wheels and buffed out the paint a little.
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.
@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.
Again, it took me just about as long to find someone who owns a late-80s Celica convertible as it took me to illustrate it. These car's are out there, it just seems that nobody reps em! No matter, I found Isaac and his $540 clunker, but more importantly I stumbled onto his blog where he posts a ton of interesting old cars that he spots. oldcarhunt.wordpress.com if you want to check it out.
