Japanese Nostalgic Car feature Nissan Sunny B310 Shooting Break and Toyota Corolla E82

Japanese Nostalgic Cars features my photoshop chops

About three years ago, John Roper found my interpretation of a Nissan Sunny B310 Shooting Break and featured it on his famous blog Japanese Classic Car. We exchanged a couple of nice emails and I was really proud that my photoshop chop even inspired him to attempt such a conversion on a real car.

What I wasn’t aware of is that the very same John Roper also wrote an article on Japanese Classic Car about my photoshopped E82 Toyota Corolla.  I might have discovered the second article only last week, but hey… it’s never too late to say thank you!

Toyota Corolla E80 5-Door ZX EFI

According to Toyota, 80% of all the Corollas sold in the last 20 years are still on the road. Not really hard to believe that it’s true. And you could probably buy the 5-door E80 Corolla somewhere in the world, if they’d re-invent it with my facelift as proposed here. I kept the basic bodywork and just changed subtle things such as the bumpers and side-skirts. The top has been chopped to get the proportions right and the body has been slammed over a set of old school 15″ wheels. Not convinced? Then think of it as the Prius predecessor that could have looked cool. 😉
