Putting the Lexus in Hot Rod

Illustration for article titled Putting the Lexus in Hot Rod

Quick, picture a car that brings together the seemingly unreconcilable visions of both rat rodders and the tuner crowd. (Oh snap, you've already seen the photo.) It's a 1968 Toyota Corona two-door coupe, powered by a 4.0-liter V8 pulled screaming from a 1992 Lexus SC 400. Edmunds describes it as what a "classic '32 Ford coupe hot rod would be if there had never been a Ford. Or a 1932." And if there was an Orange County outside Tokyo.
