ATL JDM's Toyota Crown Royal Saloon Wagon

Ever since I visited the 1JZ Drift Meeting at Fuji Speedway in 2016, I've developed a bit of a crush on Toyota's RWD line-up of cars. I love that these vehicles existed throughout the nineties (and many to the current day), as the majority of import brands moved their models to FWD platforms. The Toyota Crown sits near the top of their domestic line-up, and is probably best understood as the JDM equivalent to our Crown Victoria. Variants of the car are used in livery duty as taxis and police cars, while better appointed models are a conservative luxury option. 

This Royal Saloon model, imported by Atlanta importer ATL JDM, would have sat at the top of the Crown pyramid. While the Crown was never imported to America, this model would have been closest to our Lexus GS300. It has a 1JZ 2.5L straight-six engine, which was shared by many of the RWD Toyotas of that era. 

I know this isn't for everybody, but I have to nerd out every now and again. Enjoy.
