Appropriate name?

Meet the Toyota, er, Roomy.

Exactly the sort of car that all small boys dream of owning

More 'kill me' than Roomy in my opinion.

The Australian version:
'Roo (&) Me



I'll get my coat.....
Nice Guy Eddie

You're not thinking of buying one are you?
Michael

My Roomy is a bit of a square.

There's also the Toyota Tank from the above link.....

It has a small radiator grille, leading on to that old Maurice Chevalier song

Tank heavens, for little grilles


I'll get another coat.....

There needs to be a fire at the Toyota design studio. Preferably during office hours.

I think that happened awhile ago.

Must've only killed all the good designers. In other words, the one that did the GT86...
Michael

Didn't he work for Subaru anyway?

Those slit-like windows ahead of the front doors must be really useful, albeit only for firing arrows

First thoughts: What in the name of all that's holy is THAT?????

Second thoughts: That is not for car lovers or people with some kind of understanding of aesthetics.

If you make it through all the pictures it is the kind of car for people that like to have storage for washing up brushes, sponges, and a cup holder for Tetrapak.

Paint it red and Postman Pat will be interested.

If it cost £300,000 a week to run and performed really badly it could be called a Rooney.

My younger daughter, the one with the Fiesta, is toying with the idea of changing it for a GT86 for a couple of years, whilst she is still young and doesn't have kids......

Really? Encourage this and then make sure you have regular access.

Looks a tad special!

I'm quite interested in the new Toyota Supra that will come out in 2018. I'm pretty confident it'll be great to drive but what the styling will be like is anyone's guess.

Actaully, her first remarks along the path of getting a sports car included "something like the Ford GT or Toyota 86"
.. then  told her roughly what the GT was likely to cost, and that there wouldn't be any used ones about yet......

So she just wants a car with GT in the name then?

Don't worry about it, just encourage her to get the Toyota - having someone close own it so you only drive it when you're in the mood to would be the ideal thing.

As to the subject of this thread, it has the proportions that make it look like it belongs in the next 'Cars' film.
