Description The Toyota 2000GT is a limited-production, front-engine, rear-wheel drive, two-seat, hardtop coup grand tourer designed by Toyota in collaboration with Yamaha. First displayed to the public at the Tokyo Motor Show in 1965, the 2000GT was manufactured under contract by Yamaha between 1967 and 1970.The 2000GT revolutionized the automotive world's view of Japan. The 2000GT demonstrated that Japanese auto manufacturers could produce a sports car to rival those of Europe, in contrast to Japan's image at the time as a producer of imitative and stodgily practical vehicles. Reviewing a pre-production 2000GT in 1967, Road & Track magazine summed up the car as 'one of the most exciting and enjoyable cars we've driven', and compared it favorably to the Porsche 911. Today, the 2000GT is seen as the first seriously collectible Japanese car and the first 'Japanese supercar'. Examples of the 2000GT have sold at auction for as much as US$375,000. (wiki)
Sander Oord Member Since June 2011 Artist Statement What do you do when you like planes, trains and automobiles? When you like to see yourself in big movies and always wanted to be the star of a subculture? What do you do, when you design everything around you and you would like to share the fun cheap and simple? Hi there! I’m Sander Oord, not a moviestar, not a pilot, no subculture hero. I’m a Graphic designer sharing design fun cheap and simple. Here in this little serene pixelated domain I’m sharing you my latest artwork. You can look at it, say Oh and Ah, share the fun and buy some fun. Simple, ain’t it? I could tell you a nice story about how I became an artist and about my rough live as a big rockstar in the south of Iceland. But that ain’t no truth. So I will just share my art with you. Thanx!
