Imagine that these won't be so unusual to North American posters, but they weren't sold here and I suspect the EU-spec (this one is from NL by the plate) ones have all but died out now:
https://i.ibb.co/7n0f7MJ/IMG-20200105-121117.jpg


What is unusual is the headlights. For once, ours were flush and the European version were not. Same with the Grand Prix of that era.


I suspect some custom work, as ours had composite headlamps by that point like night cub said. Also looking at those screws(?) and blue tape over the sealed low-beams.


The blue tape over the headlights might be a crude attempt to correct their LHD geometry for british roads. The reverse of what british drivers did when holidaying on the continent, using black stickers over the headlights of their Cavaliers, Ambassadors and Sierra Sapphires (all towing caravans, obvs).

As for the car, it is indeed a Euro-spec Beretta. I remember the early ones, around 1990-91, kept their original headlights, but for some reason, when 1992 came, most EU-spec GM cars got uglified with sealed-beams their north-american brethren never got.

But here's the odd thing : the dutch "AH" plate series is for imported oldtimers ! And yet there it is, issued on 28-03-2000 for an eight-year-old car. The first registration dates from 20-01-1992.

Something for dhill_cb7 perhaps?

Didn't think much about it from afar, but somehow it looked more US spec than German, and it appeared to have amber indicators and no repeater. Good thing I checked...

Some older pictures I didn't get around to posting until now.

When was the last time I saw one of these? 2011? 2012? Doesn't matter, main thing is that this one is still alive, and in fabulous condition at that:

I still see the facelift a lot, but the prefacelift caught me so by surprise that I had to take a picture:

Two different rear lights. This looks quite ugly.

Which Toyota model is it? Is it JDM-spec?

Found by chance in very old, non-digital, photos: 1999 Škoda Felicia Fun

It's a "general export" spec Land Cruiser [J76]. Not officially sold in Europe by Toyota, but some grey importers sell them.

Probably about 1980 - I'd guess either CDN or J spec - both were fairly similar and there are comments that the final batch due to go to CDN that year was pulled, tweaked, and sent to J instead. The bigger sidelights and wing reflectors were shared, and I think after CDN got strange mid-70s high-level bumpers they may have reverted to more normal ones at the end. Is it RHD or LHD?? (although I'm not sure if J Minis were always RHD, such as that final re-assigned CDN batch which in a small book photo looks LHD).

Never seen one of these before in Australia: https://i.ibb.co/2jcVcXG/thumbnail-20200316-010310.jpg

Registration plate says it's a 2008 model, imported into Australia in 2012.

1989 Eagle Type 20R

Not a single unit sold, only one ever made for Japan. It's now abandoned somewhere in Saitama.

Is there any chance it might've been that last Diamond Reo "Red Giant?"
