April 2020 – End of Month Hodgepodge

It’s the end of April and another month of quarantine and solitude has passed.  While our view of normality and our social lives have withered, our daily walks and Zoom calls have increased. With all that has happened and will happen, there will always be cars parked on the street 🙂 Enjoy

1992 Toyota SR5 V6 Pickup

Spotted another Toyota pickup while on a walk recently. There are so many Toyota pickups of different vintages in Los Angeles that it’s easy to spot one around the neighborhood.  This Toyota pickup is the SR5 V6 package and is the last generation before Toyota switched to the ‘Tacoma’ nomenclature in the United States.

After 1976, Toyota’s small trucks didn’t have an official name in the United States, only being referred to as pickup or truck, until it became known as the Tacoma after 1995. To the rest of the world, Toyota Pickups have been and are still known as the Toyota Hilux.

1986 Toyota SR5 Pickup Truck

Happy Sunday and Happy Easter to you everyone. On one of my somewhat regular quarantine walks (a fresh reprieve from my regular interior suffocation), I spotted this cool lifted Toyota pickup truck with meaty tires.  It looks to be a 1986 version judging by the side mirrors, but the grille is from an 87 or 88 truck so I am not quite sure what year this truck is. I have always had a soft spot in my heart for this generation of Toyota pickup trucks. I blame it on Marty McFly. Enjoy.

And don’t forget to check out the other Toyota Pickup trucks we’ve spotted:

1985 JDM Nascar Toyota Pickup

I don’t know what is going on with this truck but I kind of like it.  It is a mash-up of many different styles, almost as if somebody pulled different modification choices from a hat. It’s a JDM Nascar pickup truck and I dig it’s uniqueness. Bravo to it’s indecisive owner.

1976 Toyota Pickup Truck

We’re sticking with the theme of Toyota pickups.  This one comes to us in a blazing orange glory from 1976.  Is it coincidental that all the small pickups of this time such as the Datsun 620 and the Ford Courier, were similar looking and offered this amazing orange paint option?  In matter of fact, all the colors they offered on these trucks were pretty rad.  Bring back more cool colors!

1982 Toyota 4×4 Pickup

Toyota Pickup trucks are a popular breed in Southern California.  As with many of the vehicles roaming LA streets, this Toyota enjoys sunny weather and no snow.  And unless you are close to the beach, that means no salt and no rust. This one is a clean example of Toyota’s iteration of the 4×4 pickup from the early 1980’s. It appears to be repainted and I wouldn’t doubt this has been restored very recently. I can’t really pinpoint this color –  any opinions?
