“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…”
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.

Winter is not quite over yet! So why not some fun times ice skating?

‘Tis the season to be jolly,
Fa la la la la, la la la la.
‘Tis the season when family and friends gather together, usually over lots and lots of food! Luckily for us, our Scion Evolution family does this all year ’round; twice a month. But for this holiday season, we wanted to do something a little nicer, a little bigger, a little funner!
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.
“There is no doubt that the Scion FR-S is going to be the dominant and prominent cars [sic] at SEMA this year, and I’ll go out on a limb and say the same will happen again at the 2013 SEMA Show.”

Neil could not have been more right in his prediction. The SEMA show is always a really, really, really big show. To put things into context, the SEMA show brings all parts of the auto industry, domestic and international; buyers and exhibitors; styling and performance to tools and accessories, anything you can think of it’s probably there; and then some! Now spread that out through the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, which consists of 3 halls, with one having a second floor, and then the entire outside parking lot. Yup, it’s big.
There’s no surprise on why the Scion FR-S was awarded the hottest sports compact vehicle this year. With a show that big you’d be sure to see all sorts of vehicles, well this year you still could have, but there was not a single area of the convention center that you couldn’t take a few steps and spot a Scion FR-S (or Subaru BRZ). It was almost maddening, maybe even giving some a sense of hysteria!
But all is good, let’s take a look at some of the different FR-S builds at the show. And a few other stand outs.

I got up early this morning specifically to get started and cram this write up in before Scion Night tomorrow, and I’ll be honest with you…I’m pretty tried right now. But its a good kind of tired because I’m really motivated to do this, plus it makes me remember the kind of tired I felt on Sunday after the walk. It was the type of tired you feel after a job well done, after knowing you accomplished something good…
Presented by Five Axis and Scion Evolution.
Can we get an…what? ENCORE! ENCORE was a follow-up event to our 2010 event Revue. It’s the second year we teamed up with Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) to raise awareness and donate proceeds to the foundation. With so many great charities available we chose JDRF because of their continued research for type 1 diabetes, which there is still no cure. In addition, our very own Nilo J.C. Miranda knows first hand of how diabetes affects someone, he has been through many of them from injections to a kidney transplant, and all the side effects in between. ENCORE is also our continuation with Troy and the Five Axis team. We have done many events at the facility prior to Revue and Troy has always supported the team, his insight and knowledge is second to none, not to mention he is pretty dang legendary.
