    the 90s crown looked so comfortable,
    i wanted one.
    until a magazine posted its 4.5 km/li fuel appetite.
    but i did get to ride it from time to time in hongkong.

    that one above?
    the article must be addressed to dyed-in-the-wool automotive scholars.
    damned if i know what it looks like.

    every other popular car is now getting the suv treatment...

    heh heh.

    My dad was issued a Crown 2.8L inline-six in the late 80s when he worked with a tobacco company. It was the first automatic car we experienced and it was quicker/faster than any other vehicle we had ridden before. It was the first time I rode in a car that easily did 140kmh.

    The bad thing is that it was a station wagon. I get the butt jokes from my neighbors that we have a hearse in our driveway. Hahahaha

    Funny thing is that when my dad left the company a few years later, his company sold the car to a funeral house.

    Now that's what I call a versatile car.

    We used to pretend ours was Ecto-1.



    I see a lot more big SUVs like Chevys and Fords being used as a hearse these days.

    Iyan siguro stigma ng wagon, kaya hindi siguro nauso dito.

    Mga 70s at 80s Crown madalas ma convert sa Isuzu diesel para matipid.

    If the Crown SUV does make it to our shores, who would be itís likely target customer base? We do know that the RAV4 does not sell well against its competitors. Toyota also didnít bother to bring its midsize Highlander SUV locally. Since the Crown has a gas engine and about the same size as the Highlander, it may not be sold locally.
