TORC returns to the Queen Mary Events Park in Long Beach, Calif., to celebrate the show's 20th anniversary

May 5, 2015

The Toyota Owner's and Restorer's Club (TORC) reached an impressive milestone with the 20th anniversary of its Toyotafest car show. As the event's name suggests, it is a celebratory concentration of all things Toyota, including representations from its other divisions Lexus and Scion. As you can imagine, Toyotafest was huge, and even before the gates opened at the Queen Mary Events Park finding a place to park was as difficult as understanding the Mayweather-Pacquiao fight.

Toyota nerds were treated to impeccably restored old-school vehicles and had the opportunity to cop rare vintage parts. It's no surprise the Scion FR-S game was straight up nasty, especially from first-place Scion winner Migel Leo Armas, his car sporting Todoroki fenders and rolling on 19-inch SSR Formula Mesh wheels. On the other end of the spectrum, Jose Lalama brought out his impressive 1973 Corolla TE28 wagon with a T66 turbocharged fully built 3RZ engine from a Tacoma.

The fun-filled day didn't come without a sting however. Toyota North America's relocation reality check came in the form of a petition to keep the Toyota Automobile Museum in Torrance. It makes events such as Toyotafest much more special. As Toyota says in its commercials, let's go places - perhaps in an FT-1.
