Afghanistan Graveyard of Toyota Corollas

In Kabul Afghanistan graveyard of empires and Toyota Corollas.

If this war-torn nation of 29 million is a magnet for foreign occupying forces that never seem to leave, it is also the land where old Corollas from around the globe come to die.

According to some car dealers in Kabul, 90 percent of passenger vehicles on the increasingly congested roads of the capital are Corollas, some more than 20 years old, with 200,000 miles on their odometers, still chugging along over rocky dirt roads.

    Toyotas have a reputation for going on and on. My old one in Florida had done over 150,000 miles. It seems like a sensible choice for Afghanistan, where the roads are bad and dusty, and you need something that will last. Plus if most of the cars are Toyotas, it makes them easier to fix.
