Chickens and eggs, salt and pepper, cars and guys (and gals), these things all go together! Want to know what brings geeks and car buffs together? Car websites! I guess it’s good that I’m the best of both worlds…I’m excited right now because two of the world’s most successful Japanese automakers recently added websites that can help history-loving car buffs truly enjoy their classic cars! Don’t know who I am talking about? Think Nissan and Toyota. These websites are addictive, educational, and fun. Both websites detail the entire lineup of both automakers. From Day One. What is fun on the Toyota website is the “Select a Body style” button, where you can click pickup trucks, and it will show you every single Toyota pickup truck since Toyota started 75 years ago! On both websites, clicking on a car will bring up a photo gallery, as well as a full list of specs, and the origins of the car’s name. Those unfamiliar with Toyota’s names outside the American market will be pleasantly surprised. For example, would you rather have a Lexus RX, or a Toyota Harrier? I know what I’d choose? If that’s not enough for Toyota fans, you can organize the list into what cars have what engine choices. You can choose from the bulletproof 22R four-cylinder to the tuner-favorite 2JZ inline-six. Nissan’s website isn’t as full of cool tricks as Toyota’s, it does have full lists of the evolution of each Nissan model. Each car has it’s own photo gallery, specs sheet, and a short blurb about the car.
You can get lost in the depths of Toyota’s website from the link below:

I know you are acr buff, but geeky? Nope! Spoken like a true mom!
Hey, at least you named a car – the 2009-10 Dodge Viper ACR! I do like the ACR, so I guess I am an ACR buff…
Oops, meant car buff!
A post without numbers, numbers and more numbers….most enjoyable and informative.
Speaking of numbers, I think you’re number one.
