Let's continue our Cordia weekend with this inspiring ad from Australia.


Do you think Laura Branigan got any royalties for the thinly-veiled version of her song? Maybe! In any case, we especially like the cult-leader white jumpsuit on the bearded dude in the red Cordia. Man, woman, and dog roam the outback in their Cordias, looking for recruits at their sinister picnics. Cordia! Roomia!

Funny story. I heard tell on the grapevine that there was a ridiculously low mileage two door liftback from the 80's living under a tree at a farm about two hours drive from me. Apparently the farmer's son had purchased this mystery car, spend a heap of time and money on it, but then was called away for military duties so the farmer just wanted it gone.

I eventually found the guy's phone number and quizzed him about it...

"Ah yeah mate, its here, come and get it out of my life. I think its some sort of Toyota... Its got turbo stickers on the side if thats any help"

Ooooh methinks.... Toyota, 80's vintage, 2 doors, liftback... Maybe its an AE86? RA60 Celica perhaps?

Regardless, I was enthusiastic about picking up an old school rwd toyota of some description, especially if someone had already boosted it.

Imagine my utter dismay when I arrived after hauling the car trailer 2 hours into the middle of bumfuck nowhere to see a dirty stinkin' Cordia under that tree.

I took it, and sold it to the recyclers on the way home. Made enough money to cover my fuel and a bottle of booze.
