Sponsored by the Toyota Owners and Restorers Club (TORC), the event has gained the strong support of Toyota Motor Corporation and its Lexus and Scion divisions. This year, Toyotafest celebrated its 20th anniversary, and LA Car was there at the Queen Mary parking lot with digital camera in hand.

Toyota brought its 2000GT from its museum in Torrance to the show. Coincidentally, petitions were circulating at the show to keep the Toyota Museum in Torrance. All indications are that the museum will move to Plano, Texas, when the corporate headquarters moves there. (Nakano)
