As part of our buildup to the 2012 SEMA Show, we invited 50 Scion FR-S owners out to the Toyota USA Headquarters in Torrance, CA to join us in an FR-S exclusive Scion to SEMA caravan to the Las Vegas Convention Center.
The group met up during the very early morning hours of October 31st in the parking lot of the Toyota Automobile Museum. There, the drivers has the chance to meet one another, get acquainted, and of course, discuss some of the modifications they’d each made to their FR-S’. A few members of Toyota enthusiast site Club4AG made it out for the drive, as well as representatives from OEM Audio +, Meguiars, Edmunds, and the Garage FR-S project.
After checking in and sitting through a quick meeting drivers meeting about the drive to SEMA, the group hopped in their cars and began the 300 mile trek down the 15 Freeway. We’re sure the Scion to SEMA drivers turned more than a few heads, as the caravan stretched more than a mile long when the cars were line up single file.
Several hours of driving brought the group to quick pit stops in Lenwood, CA, and Baker, CA, where they were able to grab a quick snack, take some pictures, and apply the Scion FR-S to SEMA decals to their windshields. A few more hours on the road, and they eventually arrived at the SEMA Show, where they were given their own parking spot and a had the opportunity to sit in on a press conference for the event at the Scion Booth.
The group had several hours to walk around and explore all the vehicles that were at the industry-only show, before they checked into their hotel rooms at the Mandalay Bay. Later that evening, everyone in the Scion to SEMA caravan was treated to dinner at Tao Restaurant & Nightclub, where the event finally came to a close.
We want to thank all the Scion FR-S owners who joined us for the event, and we hope everyone had a great time!
