This year’s Toyotafest was awesome and we are happy to say that the Kyoei cars were on display. We made the 370+ mile trek from Tempe to Long Beach on Friday morning. We arrived Friday evening to get some rest and be up bright and early for roll in Saturday morning. Best part of it all was that we weren’t there on our own, we had friends from Arizona that tagged along. We are happy to say that our two friends, Louis and Drew, took home 1st place Best Lexus IS and 3rd place Best Lexus IS. Our LS400 was on display in Beat-Sonic’s booth. Big thanks to them for all their support! It made for some good times and great memories. We are looking forward to next year’s event already!
While Kyoei was in Japan for USDM Jam, we also had the pleasure of attending the Find Rich Car Show in Hyogo, Japan at the Tajima Dome. There were 300 cars on display. Here are just a few of the pictures we took! Be sure to click on the gallery link at the bottom of the page for more pictures.
Our good friend Vellzou and his Vellfire with so much custom work done to it. He spent months to custom create his headlights. They are a work of art!

This is our friend ＴＯＭＯ★ぴかR and her car. Not everyday that you see a female so involved in the scene with an awesome car, but she is also a mother! Talk about dedication to the game. To top it all of, her car was just on the K Car Magazine cover. Congratulations!
Kyoei USA was in attendance and in full force at this years USDM Jam. In conjunction with Kyoei Auto Service, Kyoei USA helped finish 2 cars to bring to the show. The first was a 1990 Nissan Sentra and the second was a 1995 Mazda Miata sitting on CCW wheels. All in all, there were a whopping 780 cars on display and 50 booths, including Kyoei’s. Check out just some of the many pictures we took!
We had the privilege of attending this year’s Toyota Industry day at the Toyota Museum in Torrance, California. This private event was organized for a select few companies, businesses, and enthusiast groups in the Toyota, Lexus, and Scion scene in southern California. The day started with a introduction presentation of the Prius C. After that, we had company presentations from various shops and companies. The purpose of the presentations were to learn what the different companies were about to help provide collaboration opportunities. After that, prizes donated by the companies in attendance were raffled off. We also had the pleasure of seeing the new Prius C up close and in person at the event and we can’t forget about having open access to the museum. The museum’s collection of 200 new, old, historic, classic, custom, prototype, and race cars was a sight to see. As that wasn’t enough, the parking lot also had several cool cars from the local groups that attended. We are glad to say that we got to meet a lot of people as well as see a lot of our California friends. Overall it was a fun and positive event!
