I havn't got to drive my crown around alot but the few times i did i got some comments. One guy just walked up and said "ok what is it?" It was older guy and look on his face said he can't believe it stumped him. Than the ford falcon/nova comments started coming from every direction... In the B210 i get alot of the "i had one of those in high school!"

the best I got was an old lady who thought my x7 was a camry, lol.


No kidding. :P

When I had my x7 Cressida every where I went I had people asking me "what year Camry is that?!?".

At least, you guys got Toyota comments. When I used to drive my X6 Cressida, I'd get people asking me if it was a Dodge Diplomat or a Ford Fairmont. :roll:

One time, I went to price a differential for my Cressy and the guy at the counter didn't know it was rear wheel drive. He said "Toyota makes RWD cars?"

WTF? :lol:

This is a common occurance for crown owners... they are such an odd ball but still look really cool... almost muscle car but still a bit of japanese styling. It really throws people off. Truthfully if you look at it it looks like a celica on roids.

and yes they are Foose wheels!

I hope you got away with that ticket. I wonder what would happen actually, if the cop wrote down the completely wrong make/model on your ticket. Would it hold up in court?
