Cool old Corona

No, not Corolla—Corona (as in the watery Mexican beer, but way better). The Toyota Corona was one of the brand's early automobiles sold in the U.S. This one (not sure of the year; I think somewhere between 1967 and 1968) caught my eye the last time I was in the Astoria/Warrenton, Oregon area (it's at Lum's Toyota in Warrenton). It's a four-speed vehicle and did need a bit of exterior work, but nothing major (at least on the outside; not sure about engine/drivetrain). The inside looked nearly perfect! I'm not sure it's for sale, but it's cool! This compact is still pretty small, especially by today's standards.
