2013 AGM

As is customary with the TTCC, every years event calendar begins with the AGM. This year was no different in that aspect, but we decided that with the club due to celebrate 25 years in existence later on this year, this AGM had to be very different in every other aspect, making this AGM like no other before it.  We took the usually sedate AGM (which usually is usually just a Show ‘n Shine,  general meet and greet, and an introduction to the committee) and turned it into a not-to-be-missed Toyota enthusiasts dream come true. And the committee, sponsors, suppliers and enthusiasts alike, did not fail to disappoint!

Toy-boys and gals started turning up in large numbers to support the event, armed with their most prized possessions…their beloved Toyotas. Whether it was shining them up to show them off, running them on the rolling road, setting-off car alarms with their crazy sound installs, battling it out for the highest exhaust decibels or just coming to watch it all happen and see some of the best Toyotas around, there were Toyotas to please whatever fancy tickled you…

A few outrageously immaculate RWD Corollas came through to give us a flavour from the old school, while every variant of the front-wheel-driven Conquests, Corollas and RunX’s showed us that variety is certainly the spice of life by showcasing everything from pristine original condition cars, to insane engine swaps and great body styling. The imports and sports cars were equally impressive…featuring many an MR2 spanning all 3 generations, several of the mighty Supra, and Toyota’s latest phenomenon to take the world by storm, the 86, of which we spotted just about every colour, and though still fairly young in the SA market, many of these gorgeous 86’s were already sporting tasteful changes.

This time we even had something for the younger crowd – some drag races for the kiddies using our “specially modified” Toyota Trikes. And to settle an ongoing debate about which is better, turbo-charged or normally aspirated, even the adults had some fun doing “drag-racing” using two of the committee’s cars. No, we have not lost our minds to give them our cars to drive…remember…we said “drag race.” And that’s exactly what they did – literally drag a normally aspirated MR2 vs a turbocharged one….and whichever team of two people could get all 4 tyres over the finish line was declared the winner. After a few rounds of drag-racing, a clear winner emered…and would you believe that normally aspirated won 3 out of 4 runs!
