Continuing on with Classic Toyota Weekend, our Question of the Weekend asks whether of not the work-a-day Toyota will ever become revered as a collectible. We here at Hooniverse tend to favor the regular and the everyday vehicles over the posh, the muscular, and the over priced. We love Ramblers, Corvairs, Datsun 510s, Ford Falcons, Country Squire Wagons, and small Pickup Trucks. So will any Toyota be as memorable?
Toyota developed a reputation for being reliable appliances. The early Coronas, Corollas, and Hilux models help build on that reputation. But are they just too numerous to be a collectible?
Toyota then developed some of the sportiest cars available, with some real standouts like the original MR2, the Twin-Cam Celicas, and the awesome Turbocharged Supra. But is there any “pure stock” models left?
So the question is this: Would you ever consider any Toyota Collectible, and will it become as valuable as some of the offbeat collectibles we crave here at the ‘Verse? Let me know, and if you have a particular favorite Toyota, tell us about it.
