The Toyota Usa Museum


As you’re reading this I’m likely sitting in a hotel my gear to shoot this Toyotafest event in Long To continue with this Toyota mini-theme we’ve running over the past days I want to conclude my to the Toyota USA Automobile Museum.

start off with something geeky side of me really – Toyota vans.

This 1983 model is known as the Toyota Van.  When you a vehicle this stylish no need to bother with an actual model name.

The Crown is an icon in Toyota’s market, but let’s not forget the also had a brief history in the US

This S50 model represents the stages of the Crown’s life in It would eventually be replaced by the Corona Mark II.

In the late Toyota would introduce a new sedan for the US market with the which was essentially an imported II from Japan. The Cressida go on for three generations in the US before it was out in favor of new luxury models Lexus and the Toyota Avalon. In the top of the line Cressida made 108 with a 2.6 liter six – about the as the bargain basement Toyota makes today.

Now this is cool – a 1983 4×4 wagon.

Admit it, you like color-matched factory alloys.

the MR2 didn’t have the same history as other Toyota the museum still maintains a example from each When Toyota decided to a high-revving twin cam engine in the of a lightweight sports car it was pretty big in the automotive world, winning Trend’s 1985 Import Car of the award. This ’85 model was by an owner out of Washington.

Sitting the AW11 is this SW20 MR2 coated in bright red. you can see how someone might have this car for a small Ferrari it hit the streets back in the early

The museum also has big corner to the history of Lexus brand, with the groundbreaking 1990

It cannot be understated just how the early Lexus LS cars to Toyota’s global strategy. to an incredible investment of money, and time, the LS came right out of the to battle the world’s established sedans.

Also on a hand is an of the first generation Lexus penned by Italdesign’s Giorgetto In the “real world” you aren’t to find many first GS300s that don’t faded paint and cracked interiors, so to see one in essentially brand new is pretty darn cool.

The also includes a few old concept like this prototype of the Lexus SC…

…which you can compare to the version here. Still a car by today’s standards and one that’s increasingly difficult to find in shape.

Once I was through with the car displays, I headed over to at the motorsport section – which race cars spanning of Toyota’s competition history in America.

This area is with historic race like the Eagle MkIII GTP and campaigned by Dan Gurney and his All American In the early 1990s this car was untouchable in IMSA competition. it might look small in I was surprised by just how big this car is in

Other IMSA veterans in the include Celicas in both

…and GTO form. I’ll out the details for now as you can expect to see more of cars on the site in the future.

C love. You might be asking other famous Toyota cars like the GT One are, but you to remember that this is dedicated specifically to cars and campaigned in the America. Something very impressive in that

Although recent in the grand of things, Toyota has been successful with its venture NASCAR racing and the museum is to represent this. The collection this Celica-bodied stock car campaigned in the Goody’s Dash from 2001 to 2003. particularly interesting about car is that it’s powered by a V6 rather than a V8.

Also on is a Camry stock car that Toyota’s entry into the Cup series beginning in 2007…

…as as a Tundra from NASCAR’s series.

This tube-chassis meanwhile was built for competition in GT2 class.

If you aren’t familiar Ivan “Ironman” Stewart his years of dominating trophy racing in Toyotas, then you remember the three-player arcade game with his name on it. I I do.

This particular truck is the one used to win the 1993 Baja among other races.

Back in 2004 this recorded a 130.74 MPH run at Bonneville Week with a stock drivetrain. The 5″ suspension drop no helped it get down the salt as as possible and also gives the a pretty tough stance.

the cars, the museum also a number or trophies and other from Toyota’s racing

There’s also a lot of historic from the Toyota Grand in Long Beach.

Here’s an old from when the Celica was the car of choice for the celebrity race. I if the celebrity race will to its rear-drive roots now that the is here?

In addition to race and production cars, the collection a number of special projects and show cars from years. This is the “Ultimate built for the 2000 Los Angeles Show.

Developed by Rod Millen and the Celica has a 500 horsepower 3SGTE and a built AWD drivetrain.

Does anyone remember the show car from a while

Built by Rod Millen and Chip by shoving an LS430 motor an IS300, the show car preceded own V8-powered IS-F by several

Here’s an FJ-based Hot Rod built for a few years back. Cool!
