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.


Lexus: ES300/ Windom VIP

Don’t see many of the Lexus Es300 also known in Japan as the Toyota Windom on the roads but when I do they’re usually driven by old people. It’d be pretty nice to see more done up and rocking this VIP style. They’re more affordable then the LS400 of the same era and not a gas guzzler which is a definite plus. Although it’s not a true VIP platform it’s still a solid well build Toyota/ Lexus. Definitely a good buy and with gas prices dropping the less money on gas you spend the more you have for mods and that’s always a plus. Food for thought when buying a car with potential.
