One of L.A.’s best kept secrets is the annual Motor4Toys car show held each year in the valley to collect Christmas presents toys for Toys for Tots. Major L.A. car owners and enthusiast are well aware of this annual holiday tradition that includes pulling out their own most impressive ride and carravanning over the 405 and 101 freeways with all the others headed that way.
The parking lot of this event is said to be on par with Pebble Beach or Villa D’este — and that’s not even the cars on show.
Here is where you will find the who’s who of the L.A. car community.
One of the things that makes this show special is that it’s not just about the most expensive … Along with exotic and luxury cars, you will find a ton of hot rods, classic car and truly interesting self-built or converted cars you wouldn’t even believe like a suped-up school bus, or a yellow submarine looking thing with wheels or this adorable little Subaru 360 pictured below — an LAPD helicopter lands, a SWAT van is parked in front, a military grade Humvee comes through … The FBI, Shriefs Department and CHP also have things on display.
The same people come year after year with some of the coolest cars on the planet.
The entrance admission price? One unwrapped toy.
