Scene: Toyotafest; Queen Mary – Long Beach, CA

The Show Goes On - Event

Aug 26, 2011

Respect goes to the Toyota Owner’s and Restorer’s Club, aka TORC. While we’ve all enjoyed the electrifying culture behind Hot Import Nights, SpoCom, Wekfest and HellaFlush, there’s not much out there that has the heritage and presentation quality of Toyotafest. Presented by TORC, this year celebrated the 16th year of Toyotafest with the venue returning to the beautiful Queen Mary—a retired ocean liner on the coast of Long Beach, CA.

Toyotafest originally concentrated on pre-’85 Toyotas—the vehicles TORC club members owned. But with its growth and support from Toyota, the club opened up the field to newer models including the Supra, MR-2 and even the easily-forgettable Matrix. More recently, the event welcomed Lexus and Scion into the mix which gave the event a larger diversity. Walking through the show, you’d come across a restored 2000GT, next to a Supra turbo monster, followed by a slammed xB. It gave you a real hard-on if you’ve ever loved anything from the Toyota family. So enjoy some of the best rides here, but also check out our extended gallery online as well..
