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.

RX-7 FD3S

Since the lack of updates here on the site. I wanted to post up a pretty sick find. Saw this FD3S and was like daaaang that car is bad ass. So i had to share it with you guys.

Throwback: Curtis Chen’s Supra

I’ve always been a fan of the homie Curtis Chen’s Supra project back when it looked like the 1st pic below and as his project progressed and when it was put into action my jaw dropped and being able to see the changes and challenges this Supra has been through was great. I always used to see Curtis and the car and the shop i frequented a lot called in Creative in Sante Fe Springs and seeing the track prep was always cool. Having experience with Time attack events and winning the Castrol Syntec Top Car challenge in 2010 this car has done it all.

HKS: Super Lap Battle Hipermax Evolution

No introduction needed here. I’m sure everyone’s seen the HKS CT230R EVO. Car’s classic and one of those cars you just can’t forget.
