My visit to the Toyota Museum was an unplanned last minute decision. I had about 12 hours of free time in Torrance, CA before my flight at LAX. I actually looked up interesting places in Torrance to visit and the museum came up as one such place. I showed up at the museum door without an appointment. However, Susan, the museum director was so kind enough to not only to allow me access, but also gave me a personal tour the facility. There were several cars from as far back as Toyota's very first car, 1936 the Classic Model AA 4-door sedan, to the introduction of the Lexus brand in the USA. I also saw their latest Scion FRS sports car. I even got a first look at their newest 2013 Lexus LS 460 L which had not appeared at dealer showrooms yet. All in all it was a wonderful experience and I wish I had more time to take it all.
If you are in Torrance, I highly recommend touring the museum. The best part is its $free!
A big thank you to Susan Sanborn and also Jose who both showed me around.
