An Ode to a $200 Car


An Ode to a $200 Car

A photo series of the Toyota Starlet that carried us through Longyearbyen

I just got back from a two day trip to visit my friend Kelsey in Longyearbyen where she’s working as a dogsledding guide. We drove around Spitsbergen listening to a single cassette tape in a beat-up Toyota Starlet that she bought for the equivalent of $200 USD. It kept us warm and only threatened not to start a handful of times, so I thought it deserved a little photo series as a thank you.
