A Corona Moment

Strange to imagine a time when Toyotas were considered quirky-yet-sensible little vehicles, rather than the relentlessly staid competition-annihilators they are today. Straddling the period between the "aren't these Toyopets cute?" era and the "why the hell should I buy a Cavalier?" era, the Corona was sold on these shores from 1964 through 1982 (and well beyond that in Australia, where Toyota shoppers were fortunate enough to have a Corona ute version to purchase). The site below has a nice selection of Coronas to view, including some interesting right-hand drive models.
