General Comments:

Hi to all you Crown lovers out there, I read everybody's comments, really loved to hear that most of you had a nice time with their car.

Well mine is the oldest; a 1978 Toyota Crown Estate Wagon. I am its second owner, as its first owner was Mr Brown, an Australian. I still love to drive this car, it is one of the most comfortable cars I have ever driven, and very solid.

I had a few accidents, and I had wrecked the other cars really bad, but it is my fathers car and he insists on keeping it. My father has owned this car since 1983, which makes it 24 years since we owned the car; since then we have bought and sold many cars, but not the Crown as it has become a part of our family. The car has always been very reliable, and is my dad's absolute favourite.

Since I had a few accidents, I am unable to find parking lights and taillights for my car. Please please, can anyone can help here? He or she can comment and let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
