YAK Car Pic of the Day

89 toyota van blu snbrn copy

jc yak ny 87-93There’s a certain quaintness to the boxy design of this 1989 Toyota van (it went by a variety of names around the world, but here in the U.S. it was just the van). There’s also a certain “looks like it’s going to tip over frontwards” look to these things. The driver and front passenger sit right over the front axle, and the engine is a bit behind them, which I guess helps the weight balance thing. This one is rather rare, being the cargo van with no windows, as opposed to the regular, windowed minivan you see more often. Saw this one earlier in the week in downtown Sanborn.
