AZ Toyota Drive

header

About 10 days ago I took a little drive with the local AZ Toyota crowd up one of the best drives in the state of Arizona.  We started at the Quick Trip located at the beginning of Highway 88 and drove all the way past Canyon Lake to Tortilla Flat.

I met Brady at the “QT”, the unofficial organizer for the majority of the AZ Toyota clubs in the Phoenix area, who proudly brought his AE86 with a silver top 20V 4AGE powered engine.  But as the Toyota’s started to wheel in, Cris (Picture Below) and John showed up with later generation Corollas.  But we didn’t just have Corollas showing up to this, there was a Celica GT-S, a *cough* Infiniti G35 *cough*, MR-S, and several 3rd generation Supras.

Cris's Rolla

The supra below is Clint’s and has a turbo charged 2.5 L 1JZGTE engine putting 330 HP to wheels.  Impressive, I think so.

After gas tanks were filled and all the Toyota members were amply supplied with their beverage of choice, we headed down highway 88 in Arizona.  If you haven’t been there is is worth the drive, especially on the day we went; sunny and 70 degrees.  I cruised with the windows down and the wife snapping pictures along the way.

We stopped at Tortilla Flat where the Supra guys split off and took a drive further back on 88.  I took some pictures of our local “Boso” who represents a recent Japanese craze here in the U.S..  Check out Woody’s crazy exhaust.

All in all, it was a great drive and I can’t wait to bring the AE86 out again.  If you want to see more pictures from the drive check out the link below.

Bosozoku is not a recent Japanese craze: it has been there and in other parts of the world for years. Maybe it has recently pop upped in the US and therefore a created a new craze. ;)

I personally hadn’t heard of it until just recently, though it doesn’t really hold a very high place in my heart that’s for sure.

Clint looks like Tarzan in that picture haha… Good guy though, even if he did have me drive halfway across Phoenix to pick up that T66 for him =P

That Boso exhaust looks like it is compensating for something. :)

If you make any missteps the crowd will start
to get suspicious and your suspicion-meter will start to
fill. Well, people are always re-roofing their homes, and
most likely you can find someone that will hire you to do it for
them, or they will find you if you advertise. Ya that’s right, hand made, an every time someone changed the size of a nut or bolt, a new wrench had to be made.

Today, while I was at work, my sister stole
my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she
can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!

You might spend very little for the purchase of your
food processor, but if it doesn’t accomplish the functions
you need it to do or even worse that it breaks down in a matter of
a few months utilizing it, after this you could end up obtaining one more unit which will in the end cost you more money.

The size of the mixing bowl is a distinct advantage when you want to make more
than one loaf of bread or 2 dozen cookies. Both of them are huge entities and when you are planning to
get the best out of them then pricing and availability
does not seems to bother people.

It is best to know this about them before trusting them to help you with a lock.
A locksmith with the correct tools can come to where she is and work
on removing the stuck key. Even though our company
is a state licensed electrical contractor, I personally believe it is important for consumers to know the difference.

Now larger women can find molded cup style bras, they can find soft cup and beautiful
under wire bras that are very beautiful. If you have
jewelry, particularly gold ones, wear them on your neck and ears.
The risk of wearing it in this way increases immensely especially
if you are wearing the shawl as a neck scarf.
In general, women with less sense of fashion and clothing might not consider wearing upper
clothes that suits their chest area, so they end up in wearing wrong blouse and shirts; wrong here means clothes that make
them look bigger or awful.
