Well we had a fun filled night out at Irwindale Speedway. Scion Evolution sent out an open invitation to Fuscion Car Club to join us for a day of Racing! Even Johnny Rodriguez long time SE Member made it out after being helicoptered off a mountain earlier in the week. He didn’t put duct tape on his cast which he cracked a couple of days earlier to make it to the event, that is dedication and shows you how much he enjoys Irwindale.

“And now for my next number…I’d like to retun to the..CLASSIC, better than I’ve ever been. If it’s classic it’s gonna last forever. Can’t buy this, superflyness, like a shyness, your highness…It’s performin’, look how long the line is…That’s what happens when you make sh*t that’s timeless…”
ToyotaFEST2013_0018
I never thought I would quote Kanye West here on Scion Evolution, or any write up for that matter, but the timeless classic, being better than they have ever been is definitely the roots of Toyotafest. Whether it originated from the 80′s, 90′s, or even early 2000′s, each generation of each model from Toyota’s heritage has a very special place in the industry.

ToyotaFEST 2013 Pt. I – ScionFEST

 
Events

Snaps: J.Pagtalunan

Toyota Owner’s and Restorer’s Club originated with the idea of preserving the Toyota heritage. Enthusiasts would preserve and restore classic Toyota vehicles, such as models dating before 1985. This is particular difficult for Scion owners, who’s brand was barely founded back in 2002. When Toyotafest started, the Scion brand wasn’t even founded yet.

But never fear, all this means is that Scion owners just have to take a different approach to building their vehicles. True to Scion’s slogan, “customize or die,” Scion owners have been known for expressing their creativity. From subtle and sleek to wild and crazy, there was no shortage in the amount of Scion builds at Toyotafest. For part one, we will take a look at some of the best at Toyotafest, or maybe I should say Scionfest.

First there was the Scion FR-S Tour of LA, then there was 86fest, followed by the Scion FR-S to SEMA, and now…the Scion FR-S Cup!
Why? Because FR-S

FRSCup073

The Scion FR-S has truly been the hottest car in scene right now. And anyone can tell just by the amount of involvement various groups have had putting on FR-S themed events such as this. The high participation and involvement of the community attending these events is also evident of the interest in this car.
