Driven to Write has featured this car before, not once but twice.
Given this month’s theme and the fact that we like Curbside Classics here, we link to a nice and short featurette about the Toyota Crown. As usual, there are some useful comments below the main article which also include some photos of the interior.

Ebay has an S60 for sale in Surrey. Currently bid at £2,700 (reserve not met). It’s left hand drive and has seat covers – not what I’d want, but in a way I see why they chose blue-ish faux leopardskin.
Now if it was a white coupe…..
That´s remarkable. It´s both a tidy sum and also very good value for really rare vehicle. I wonder what it is like to drive: quite vintage if you are used to punting a Suzuki Swift around the place. There´s another rarity I´d like to try.
Reading more, it was imported from Norway. Hence the left hand drive. It is, unfortunately, manual with a floor shift. Either an auto or, at least, a column shift would be my preference.Nevertheless, it does look very tempting, Were I a time-wasting tyre kicker, I’d certainly pop down to Dorking to try it.
That is lush.
Isn’t it. It’s got a lot of style. Or you could buy a seven year old Laguna.
