Playing for Keeps

Following up with the Second hand Japan theme is a few snaps of a car which looks like its been left aside for quite some time.

As far as I know, the T100-T120 series of Corona is not a typical collectable especially not the wagon version

The whole thing looked very original,  down to the wheels and tyres, except for the wood grain insert on the back.

Initially you have to wonder if the owner has passed away. Leaving behind his wheels to a family member or worse yet, forgotten after the fact.  Then looking further i noticed a few things. The most obvious being the fact its parked in a revolving car park which normally costs the occupant quite a premium.

Then I noticed the dots of yellow paint on most of the bolts, typical of a serious post manufacture style inspection.

There are plenty of signs of use, slight oil leaks and wear and tear.

Check the mean amount of dust that’s gathered.

Its time to speculate. Collectors item or the parking attendant being to respectful to remove something that’s been left behind.
