Toyotafest AKA TORC: Queenmary Long Beach PT1

Toyotafest is one of my favorite events to go to not only because of the nice location at the Queenmary but because of it’s roots. Toyota Owners and Restorer’s Club (TORC) AKA Toyotafest bring the enthusiast through the years, old and new together for a gathering that just feels so humble. No crazy model lounges or loud music from 10 different booths. Just cars, raffles and enthusiasts. I try and attend this event every year since I’ve found out about it maybe 7-10 years ago and have fun seeing old friends and meeting new ones there.

I have my own coverage of the event but wanted to introduce on of the BobsYrUncle crew Eric Gamboa that participated at the event and took a few photos to share.

Enjoy.

what happened to the IS-F?

I remember when the car came out and it was suppose to be BMW’s competitor to the M3 but since it’s debut the car has died out (well to me at least) I haven’t heard anyone talk about building one or track stories since the launch.
Being that i have owned a M3 i’m not gonna lie i am a fan of the BMWs but i also do own a IS and i love them both but i wanted to make a post about the IS-F to bring back some love for the car that has so much potential. I’d love to see more builds.
In the mean time i found this pretty clean IS-F .. if anyone has some pics of some bad ass ones send them over i’d love to see.
