Ove Andersson Makes a Happy Choice By Hooning a 1982 Toyota Starlet

We're pretty sure that's the late rally monster Ove Andersson getting all sideways in a growling '82 Starlet, although it's possible that Toyota honored the Starlet's utter cheapitude by substituting Joe "Over" Andersson, Wisconsin dirt-track racer, for this ad.

Either way, we love the 60-series Starlet's rear-wheel-drive, no-frills, no-sound-deadening, no-cup-holder spirit. Were Toyota to bring this car back today, it would weigh 3,400 pounds and come with standard power windows an an 8-speaker sound system.

I've been looking for a decent KP61 Starlet at the local junkyards and CL for a few years now.

Register it in neighboring AZ to bypass CA's draconian smog laws and drop in a 20V 4AGE or maybe even a bridgeported 13B, coilovers, LSD, 6 speed, cage and TRD box flares on some Work Equips.
