Toyota's one-millionth Camry

On October 12, 1993, Toyota's one-millionth Camry rolled off the line.


The Camry was first introduced by the Toyota Motor Company in 1983 as a replacement for its Corona Sedan. Hoping to follow in the path of the popular Toyota flagship, the Cressida, the roomy and durable Camry immediately proved a best-seller, faring well against the likes of the Honda Accord and domestic U.S. compacts. In the late '80s, the Camry, now Toyota's most popular model, saw an upsized redesign, boasting a new twin-cam 2.0 liter 4-cylinder engine with 16 valves and a much greater horsepower potential than the previous model. In 1992, the Camry was again stylishly redesigned, approaching mid-size while maintaining its original efficiency. On this day, a decade after it was first introduced, the one-millionth Camry rolled off a Toyota assembly line. Four years later, in 1997, the Toyota Camry became the best-selling car in America.

Of course...that is nothing to brag about...Now the Chevy Vega...that was impressive! They sold over 1 million...they even came out with a special orange with white stripe cosworth version that said Millionth Vega on the side and door handles...

The impressive part is how they have every one VANISHED... When was the last time you saw a vega on the street?

Whats impressive is the fact that the Toyota plant in Georgetown has the first car that ever rolled off the line. That car still looks as good as a brand new one. When the big guy came over to look at the plant the brought it out of storage and cleaned it up.

Toyota's cars are truly something that the japs are quite proud of. considering that the millionth camry was built in 93. I wonder how many of those cars are still driving around, with lost of miles on the clock? 250k is just breaking those little gems in. I love toyota cars, after having owned an 86 tercel that had 250k on it, and ran so well you would have thought it new, I know the quality.
