 Post subject: Toyota Museum photos.
PostPosted: Mon Aug 17, 2009 9:01 pm 
Here's a link for the Toyota Museum that I found during a search. There's some nice looking cars here.

When you come across the 1970 Celica it looks exactly like the 1972 Celica (yellow color too) Celica I purchased new when no one ever saw them on the roads in California before mine. The one shown here is the model sold in Japan, however, I am sure.

I hope the page comes up correctly.

I'll give both links I have, but they might go to the same spot.

Enjoy:

Oh thanks for the other links that showed more of the museum.

I found the photo of the stearing wheels very interesting, and I do like them better than newer ones.

Those cars if maintained last longer than any car made today.

I would drive the hell out of it. Of course it would be 2" off the ground and rolling on 12" watanabe's (shut up, it's my fantasy!!)

It's a wonderful Museum, here are 3 pages on this forum about my visit in 2006, including what you normally don't see in the reserve.

I have to say the back room is almost more impressive than what is on display.

If you don't mind, I'm going to repost this photo here:

You noted that you forgot what it was, so I just wanted to post it in case you never found out. It's a Kaiser Henry J, it may be one of the Mitsubishi assembled ones. Mitsubishi built jeeps for the U.S. during the Korean war (and after) they also built a few Henry Js.

Michael, of course yes, I'm sure we'll meet one day, let's see if in America, or in Europe, or in Asia !
Well the reserve is actually on the first floor, not basement.

And Mos6502, you're right, at the time I was there I didn't know about that car but since I've made a page about it I know it's a very rare example of Henry-J by Mitsubishi.
