    Very nice! those rear blinds you Aussies like crack me up. I suppose if we had them there wouldn't be so much cracked vinyl in our cars.

    Welcome to JNC!

    Yes, for some reason everyone here (except me) wants them.

    As far as I know they are an uniquely Australian accessory. Still manufactured here, but only for a limited range of vehicles.

    That would be a good story to put in the magazine - period accessories. I buy a lot of 60's - 70's car magazines and love the old accessory ads. Usually complete with some groovy chick draped over a car with her mouth open in ecstasy.

    We just put them on the outside here Ben. I really dig them. Here's a rare factory option set on an AW11


    I told the owner I get first dibs on them if she wants to take them off

    Look good on a 3rd Gen Celica too!

    I think Ben already knows about outside rear louvers, man.

    I think his comment was meant for those INSIDE rear blinds. :wink:

    nice corona you got there :tu:
    i have a late model 69 deluxe

    did you take those rubber impact things of the fron and rear bumper?
    is yours not a deluxe model?

    i also noticed your taillights have amber on the outer edge,have never seen that before also did you put those seat belts in?they look a bit modern for that car

    any future plans for the corona?

    Those tail lights might be required in Oz. As far as the inside venetians, we had them in the US back in the 60s. Usually seen in yank tanks driven by geezers.
