Toyotafest was my first real car show. I have had cars I loved (87 Integra and 05 RX8 shout out), but they were not worth showing. Th Sunchaser is a different story.

I admit, I was too shy and did not talk enough to the obsessive Celica people. I really habe no excuse except being nervous that their cars were so cool and well restored, and maybe I wasn’t really in their club. This was stupid.

There were amazing Celicas there with beautiful interiors, which is where I need the most help. I did learn that rubber and plastic trim pieces are hard to find.

I should have gotten advice instead if feeling awkward.
