Well, the Japanese New Year Meeting doesn’t take place for another few weeks but here’s BeeOneOneOh’s photos from their local meet in Auckland. I am in love with this visor-clad Crown goon.
You guys keep teasing me with all these awesome Crowns! You hate me! I’m just gettin over the loss of that Crown from a few months ago, and you throw this at me!! OOOOHHHHH THE HUMANITY!!!!!!!
Bert, get on that seafoam green wagon in Indiana!
Where in Indiana?
Bert: La Porte. Check out the Ad / Auction finds section in the forum. There are mucho pics there. It’s an S40 but just as cool.
So it’s not the 67 on Craigslist?
It is, but several JNCers have contacted him and gotten info and detailed pics that they posted.
I can’t seem to be able to register for the forum, something about a confirmation email?
Sometimes it gets filtered as spam but anyhoo, I activated your account and it’s good to go.
Well thanks Ben! Um where are these pictures? All I saw were rusty rocker panels! I saw a 69 on Craigslist in Redding California, for 2500 last month. The seller said it used to be her dad’s, and she was trying to sell it for christmas money. The add dissapeard, so I don’t know if it sold or not, but California might be easier for me to get to than Indiana. So far the 70 Crown that was for sale here in Washington was the cleanest and best looking I’ve seen.
You’ve got mail
So it doesn’t look too bad, but I think my wife shot me down with “How are we going to get to Indiana with $2000 of our hard earned money that we don’t have!!??”
You could have it shipped with Uship.com but I hear ya bout the $$. Bummer, I really want a JNC reader to save it.
Are there any JNC’ers in Indiana? And don’t you guys have an S40 as a project car? Project Blue Whale or something like that?
It was an MS65 but it’s busy gathering dust at an undisclosed location… Not enough time or $$ atm.
Surprisingly there are apparently very few Crown fans in the Hoosier State.
Thats sad! I feel, and this is just my personal feelings, that every lover of J-tin should love and admire the Toyota Crown. Pay your respects to the king!
I love and admire the Crown very much! And when we do restore it I want to give it the attention it deserves. No sense in half-assing it, right?
