Fliking through some photos.

I'm a theif thief thief. Stealing photos of Toyotas. Public sports Cocnept. More thefts below. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="640" caption="This is the Publica Sports Concept. It features a pretty sweet sliding top. This early version had one interesting roof, while the Hybrid prototype had one of the first known Targa tops."][/caption] Publica Sports 800 production model. [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="560" caption="Just a early racing photo of a Toyota Sports 800, perhaps staged for a brochure."][/caption] This Publica sports was a rare, and one of the earliest 'Hybrid' cars ever made. Gas Turbine that spun an electric motor.

If I had the sponsorship I'd write a magazine strictly on work trucks. They are all different, amazing and do interesting things."][/caption] [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="604" caption="Toyota Publica. Of the same bloodline as the Sports 800, the Publica was a series of sedans, coupes, convertibles, wagons, and trucks, aimed to be an affordable range of vehicles from which the Starlet and ever so slightly, Tercel and Corolla spawned from."][/caption] [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="614" caption="Short Wheel base Toyota LandCruiser. Not to be confused with a Nissan Patrol or Isuzu Trooper."][/caption] [caption id="" align="alignnone" width="614" caption="I always love the variations of tailights and bumpers when accommodating European plates.
