That would be a fast and smooth vehicle.

Wow that is quick. Those 500's are pretty popular though. They were hugely expensive at the time and they didn't sell many. They also appeal to a very different buyer than the CLK55.

The ultimate in 80s bling, the Trasco 1000SEL.

https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/273894398841

Despite many assuming it had a 10l engine, the 1000SEL was mechanically a 500SEL, but I think the name came from it being twice as good or something like that.

THis one looks like it was dragged out of one of those abandoned car lots in Dubai. It's pretty rough.

Get out your gold chains and head back to the 80s!

Just the thing for a dog show. Imagine how many puppies I could fit in this monster.
Mind you, just a little rust in the sills and it would sag like sponge.

There is a lot to be said for owner a signal red short wheelbase W126 as your daily driver.

Some interesting cars this week.
The Corona is very good for the price.

That finnie looks pretty good but is priced like one that needs no work and has history.

The 380 is not bad but I am no fan of that colour. I like the earlier ikon gold but not the w126 version.

I have not seen a corona like that in years.

I agree Bryce,
The Corona seems like a bargain collectors item.
The interior is quite stunning, and no cracks or damage which 70ís Japanese cars had as standard is a bit of an eye opener.

My father had an early 80s Cressida as a company car for a short period. This was of course back in the days before FBT so company cars were much more common. I can't remember all the details, but I think he had recently joined that company and they had ordered him a car, but it wasn't going to be available for a couple of months. The cressida had belonged to another employee who had left and it had a few months left on the lease.

I recall it being quite comfortable, but a bit boring. it was blue with a blue velour interior. At the time I was helping him pave our driveway and we did a few loads of pavers in the boot in this thing. We filled every available space in the quite large boot on a couple of runs, must have been about a ton of pavers in there. other than looking like a dog with worms dragging its arse, the Cressida didn't really suffer all that much being used as a ute.

Funny how you remember these sort of things.

Great memories mate.

I have to admit, these old Toyota's far exceeded their design brief.

I would even go as far to say, their quality & reliability were number one in the world.
Nothing came close to these cars for uptime.
