Inside Toyota USA Automobile Museum, first thing I see is Scion FR-S concept which first shown at NYIAS. When Jack Hollis said “Freaking Really Sweet!” it totally true, it’s freaking really sweet!
Go more inside, there were sports cars lined up some of them which inspire Scion FR-S.
It’s time to roll off to Mulholland Canyon route. Totaling over 80 FR-S, AE86 & BRZ going same direction equal to whole street covered with them.
Leading the charge is of course, fearless leader LFA
Stop & go, stop & go though PCH heading to Malibu, we finally to to Mulhulland Canyon. Beautiful sky, great canyon, great cars… what more to ask?
After driving around LA, we drove back to Longo Scion, food trucks were waiting for us.
The end of festival, I didn’t hear anyone who got “Freaking Really Stupid” sticker or any wrecks, everyone came back safely and had a fun time. I call that a successful event!
