Toyota Corona RT20, Stunt Machine

toyota_corona_rt20
Here’s a car that’s definitely no clunker. In the 60s Toyota put out a series of commercials in which their cars performed zany stunts to demonstrate their resilience. Take this RT20 Corona, for example. Sold as the Tiara in the US with a 1900cc engine, it jumps, smashes through walls of drums and even gets rolled off a cliff long before Top Gear tried to kill a Toyota. These videos are not embeddable, so click on the images to go to the actual commercial.

    hmm, maybe I’ll find a cliff to roll my S30 down. Then I’ll get that battered rat rod look I’ve been wanting! ;)
