A couple of months back, while the wildfires were raging through the hills of Southern California, engulfing the homes of many up in flames and dumping the ashes everywhere like snow during a blizzard, the members of the www.ClubLexus.com forum were fortunate enough to escape from harm and foul air and receive a private tour through the Toyota Museum of Industry & Technology.
The museum is owned and operated by the Toyota Motors Corporation and it is located at a discrete and undisclosed location in the city of Torrance not far from the Toyota/Lexus headquarters and it houses some of the rarest vehicles in existence. However, despite it from having the potential to be a great attraction, the museum is unfortunately not open and not known to the public as its purpose is to preserve the vehicles and entertain corporate guests on special occasions. Luckily for the members of ClubLexus, one of the moderators happened to have personal contacts within Toyota Corporate and was able to arrange a brief private tour of the facility and here are the pictures.
