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.
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.
