    There's a Toyota Museum? Is it actually worth visiting?

    I think if it is worth visiting that a few of us coordinate a day where we could visit this so-called museum and caravan a day trip up there.

    We need more pictures? How many cars roughly? All kinds?
    Celica, Paseo, I thought I saw a MR2, Tercel, Cressida, etc...

    So is that a base TRD or what? It looks higher than stock... or is that the tires? or just the picture?

    If you are a lover of Toyota's (which I am) it is defintely worth the visit!

    It is FREE but you can only visit by appointment!

    The cars there are amazing and most of them have less than 500 miles on the ODO.

    Here's a teaser:
