Imported Toyota Chaser at Maple Grove Drift Event!

On Saturday, April 24th, Maple Grove Raceway hosted The 2010 Greater Reading Auto Expo. Spectators had the option to either enter their car in the show or watch drifters all day long.

Conicelli employee, Eddie Bernstein, was at the event with his camcorder and found something you don’t see everyday. The one car that really caught his eye was an imported 5th generation Toyota Chaser X90 driven by Anthony Cruz. This right hand drive JDM Toyota sedan was produced for 6 generations (1977-2000). Most were RWD 4-door sedans, with the 2-door coupe discontinued after the first generation. Previous generations shared the shared the same chassis as the Toyota Cressida which was sold here in the states. Like the Cressida, the Chaser caught on camera shares the same motor as the Toyota Supra. This car was a competitor to the almighty Nissan Skyline.
With the Hyundai Genesis and other RWD sports cars being produced by different car manufacturers, hopefully Toyota will give in and produce another sports car in the near future such as a remodeled Supra or the FT-86 prototype.
