A Little More Cowbell Doors: 1991 Toyota Sera

When I saw this next car come into our tips box I thought it might be too soon to post another one...but then I did a quick glace into the archives and found two things;  first, it has been almost a month since I posted the last one (where does the time go?) and second, there is no such thing as too much cow bell.  Because this is the cow bell of the automotive world and you should not fear the reaper.  Those scissors/lambo doors might be totally unnecessary, but they add an essential element to what would otherwise be a plain and lame.  Find this 1991 Toyota Sera offered for $5500 in Damascus, OR. Tip from Rock On!

  1. I guess I won’t be a rhd convert because the road to Damascus is closed according to the first photo.

  2. This is the kind of car you drive with the doors OPEN, cruising the boulevards after Cars n Coffee...

    ... in Boise.

    According to the seller, the designers at McLaren were inspired by this car.

    Imagine that.
