Still Life with DOHC

Filed under: Car Photo Of The Day,Still Life with... — chuck goolsbee @ 11:13 am

A car that showed up at an Auto-cross practice session I attended some time ago. Shot from across the parking lot with a telephoto lens, which forces perspective and makes things pop a little.


  1. A Toyota Corolla Twin Cam, a truly potent little weapon in the right spacer’s hands!

  2. Even better. A 4A-GZE with forced induction. The plastic mesh cam gear cover is interesting. I haven’t seen that before.

  3. It looks home-made.

  4. It is homemade, Chuck: it’s there to access the adjustable cam sprockets, not a stock item on the engines, but a widely-used mod to make adjustments to cam timing. Easier to hob up an expanded metal grate than to remove the entire timing belt cover, trust me!
