73' Toyota Corolla Levin 4000GT by Mister-Lou
73' Toyota Corolla Levin 4000GT
Been working on this one for sometime now and i've decided to throw myself in yasiddesign's Inbound project.

this is possibly one of the very few Traditionally done cars in there (most are Photoshop/Digital) 

onto the car itself, it started life as a 2nd gen Toyota Corolla TE27 coupe, but i wanted to go with a full blown track day car motif.

the first thing to go was the Hemi 2T-G for something a bit more modern: a 1UZ-FE V8 off a Toyota Celsior/Lexus LS400 and a Tremec T56 6 speed manual.

the rear Suspension is a Double Wishbone off a Jaguar XJS and the diff is a Dana 44.

the interior is bare bones apart from the custom tach and the wooden steering wheel (Nardi, bitches) with a multi-point roll case in case things get real.

how much power am i estimating out of this car? since it's not relying on forced induction, around....550hp at 7,500 rpm and a curb weight of 1,900+lbs....you do the math.

The first Toyota car in the Western Hemisphere. by Mister-Lou
The first Toyota car in the Western Hemisphere.
Should've uploaded this months ago, but i had so many car pics that i couldn't bring myself to upload them here. 

This is basically the oldest Toyota in Puerto Rico, and the first one to ever come to America.

a 1958 Toyopet Crown, which initially only sold to California in the late 50's alongside Datsun when they were offering the 1000 sedan to the very state.

the first thing that people notice is the fact it looks like a 3/4 Plymouth Cranbrook. this was back when most cars were influenced by the US auto industry. 

unfortunately, the build quality of the Crown was not that good. so much so that when Toyota did the national run through the US, they called it quits when they went to Nevada. 

as a result, they pulled out for a while and returned later in the 60's with the RT40 Corona, which established Toyota's reputation in the US for it's reliability. 

it's a permanent exhibit in the Amaro Collection in Vega Alta, Puerto Rico and imported from Australia.

Whoa, it seems the admins messed up with the new updates. 

if this ends up being like Facebook, they might as well start changing their name to "SocArt" or some shit.
