    Why is there no large Tacoma owner enthusiast gathering? Or is it me, and I am just missing the fact that something similar already exists? Please correct me...

    Obviously the local and semi-regional GTGs, Mod-Days and Trail Days are great for geographical significance, but where is the nationwide annual gathering?

    Think about this;

    BMW enthusiasts have Bimmerfest and Mfest
    Volkswagen and Audi enthusiasts have Dubfest
    Ford Mustang enthusiasts have Mustangfest
    Corvette enthusiasts have Vettefest

    And there's more than that, BUT, those are arguably the most fanatical auto owner groups. As a BMW nut, I would venture to enlist Tacoma owners as fanatical as BMW owners (well, almost). So... why the hell can't I attend some kick-ass heavily sponsored, heavily attended annual Tacoma festival?

    I know there are sponsored and well attended 4WD/ Off-Road Truck-show events, but I don't care to look at Dodge Rams, Jeep Wranglers and Ford 150s/250's, etc. I prefer to see a shit ton of Tacomas. 1st generation and on, modded and stock and TRDs to 5 luggers. I want it all.

    It's hard to believe that with the diversity on this board that the many great minds here have yet to collaborate and assemble such an event! Tacofest, Tacomafest. I say let's do it!!

    For reference, here's a photo from a few years ago at Bimmerfest. In your mind, replace all the BMWs with Tacomas and just think how kick-ass!

    What say you TacomaWorld? I want to hear from everyone.


    Cliffnotes (for those who lack the ability to ready more than 4 sentences due to ADD); Where the hell is a Tacoma festival. Tacoma owners share the same passion as other car enthusiasts. Time to get our shit in gear TacomaWorld and assemble an annual gathering!

    Hey, it's only like -3 or something right now....that's not bad. It's like 25 or something in your silly Farenheit temperature measuring system. ;)

    Arazona would be a cool place to do some offroading too. It's far from me but if it were in a bad ass state park or something where we had plenty of space to toy around and camp.

    If you get that many Toyotas together in the same place they'll turn into a giant robot and then speed uncontrollably into the pacific ocean towards Tokyo and when they get there they'll destroy the whole city. Jeez, watch the news.
