“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.

One of the first classics that caught my eye was Ben’s 1983 Corolla from Team Klassified.

Don’t let the sedan, family car design fool you, Ben has put in a lot of work to not only restore it, but make it even better inside and out. Exterior styling, interior styling, and performance ready.

When scanning the field at Toyotafest, there 3 things you are sure to see…

A myriad of MR2’s,

Especially Armand’s widebody MR2. As I was shooting it, I wondered if that GoPro was on…recording everyone admiring this beauty.

A cluster of Celica’s,

I know I opened this piece with Ben’s Corolla, but we can’t forget about the AE86’s

Before we dip into the luxury world of Lexus cars at the show, we should all admire the build that bridges the gap.

Sure, saving gas and luxury might seem like an oxymoron, but there is nothing contradictory about Rodney’s Prius.

As we head our way to the blacktop of VIP’s, Troy is showing off another fancy build they have been working on over at Five Axis Design. The Lexus CT with a custom Five Axis wide body sitting on his most recent wheel design, the S7:F’s.

OMG VIP, Matt’s license plate says all that needs to be said with his blinged out Lexus CT.

Lexus themselves brought out a couple show stoppers with the CCS-R race car and the CCS-P street car.

And this specific CCS-P is outfitted with the full F-Sport package, which (the package by itself) by the way costs as much as a brand new car!

Well that wraps ups another year at Toyotafest for ScionEvolution, there’s a bunch more photos for you all to ogle at, so feel free to browse around below or back at our Part I coverage.
