August 30, the quirky and passionate Toyota crowd came out to Griot’s Garage for the 5th annual Puget Sound Toyota Owners Festival hosted by PSTOC. Over 150 cars swung by, representing everything in the Toyota family! The event was also a Toys for Tots fundraiser that filled the entire bed of a pickup with new toys for less fortunate kids.

1, 2, 3, 4 gerbils and a really big intake… huh, so that's how Scion's get such good gas mileage.

If cars could talk, this vintage Corolla would be snarling and growling as it chews up the track.

FEAR Racing was represented by two of their AWESOME Stinger figure 8 cars. They were even using Speed Shine to clean the fear off their bumpers.

    Thanks Dustin and everyone at the show. It was quite a diverse and interesting group of machines. Of all the non-Toyota vehicles I really liked the Yamaha TZR250 motorcycle!

    It may not be the biggest show, but it has got to be the most unique and fun show around. There is no other place where you’ll see so much variety. Thanks to everyone who continues to participate and make this a success year after year.

      Not to mention that we raffled off a car for the second year in a row! Got to give a major thanks to all the sponsors that supported this event. Looking forward to what next year may bring. Who knows maybe another car to raffle off. ;)
