The 17th Annual All Toyotafest show was held at Long Beach Harbor, California, with the iconic Queen Mary serving as the show’s vintage backdrop. Toyotafest, hosted by TORC (Toyota Owner’s and Restorer’s Club), is regarded as the largest West Coast gathering of Toyota cars ranging from old school, modified retro-rods, restorations-in-progress, and fully restored, to new-school cars. Are you craving super-rare or hard-to-find collectable vehicles? Toyotafest’s got you covered. This year’s event toasted the welcoming of the release of the Scion FR-S, a newcomer to the Toyota family that’s rooted in the classic AE86 Corolla GTS heritage.

To say the turnout was huge was an understatement. Classic Toyotas like the 2000GT, S800, Celica, Trueno, Levin, MR2, and Supra, to the latest Scion FR-S and VIP Lexus models jam-packed the venue from the shoreline to the parking lot. Without surprise, the festival continues to grow in participation and spectators; TORC encourages all Toyota owners to bring both cars and family to celebrate over 75 years of automotive heritage.
