Exhibition and socializing
The Toyota Automobile Museum will host its 31st Classic Car Festival on Sunday, October 25. Our museum will serve as the venue this year, accommodating about 50 privately owned classic cars that will participate in a street parade. Special exhibition and socializing will also take place at the venue.
The street parade will feature Japanese, American, and European classic cars dating from 1990 or earlier, all of which have been carefully preserved and maintained by their respective owners. The cars representing 7 countries and 24 manufacturers will depart from the Toyota Automobile Museum in chronological order according to their date of manufacture and will parade through Nagakute City before returning to our museum.
In a new approach, this year’s event will be broadcast live on YouTube (on the official channel of the car community website, GAZOO) and on a local cable TV channel (Himawari 11) in the morning. In the afternoon, live streaming on YouTube will cover interviews with all parade participants about what they love about their cars.
Displayed at the Restoration Zone within the venue are supply parts for Toyota 2000GT and model A70/A80 Supras, which have been commercially reproduced as part of TOYOTA GAZOO Racing’s “GR Heritage Parts Project.”
To prevent the spread of COVID-19, public access to the venue on the day of the festival will be limited to Nagakute residents and Toyota Automobile Museum annual pass holders. We will also conduct temperature checks for all staff members and visitors, and everyone will be required to wear face masks and observe social distancing at the venue.
Although we cannot invite a large number of visitors to the venue, we hope the live streaming of the event will provide a highly intimate experience to a wider audience, allowing them to appreciate classic cars and enjoy a cozy connection between the people and cars.
