Living the Toyota Life
Welcome to my world.
Welcome to Toyotageek.com!

What's Toyotageek.com?

Toyotageek.com started as an idea many years ago, and finally came into being in 2006. Over the
years, the site has evolved and changed, just as my interests have. However, the overall theme has
always been and will always be TOYOTA.

This is where you will find
Toyotamobilia: history, stories, toys, brochures, literature, photos,
collectibles, trivia... basically anything to do with Toyota.
All Toyota - All the time!

I have a lot planned for the site, but only so much time to do things.  When the site started I was
single, and now I'm married. These days life revolves around my wife, our dog, and keeping an eye
on my father. So, please be patient, and I will add new material as time permits.

I will be adding new
Toyota Tales as they become available - real stories about real people and
real cars.

My eventual goal is to include pages on
Toyota history, from the earliest beginnings with Sakichi
Toyoda, who started it all with his textile looms, and Kiichiro Toyoda, who founded the Toyota
Motor Corporation, to eventually include company and vehicle history up to the early 1970's.

Over the years I have collected of all sorts of Toyota related items, especially
brochures and toys.
Eventually there will be pages devoted to those topics. Recently I began working on a guide to
minicar shops of Japan, since that is where I get a lot of my mincars. I'll also be adding more
minicar / diecast / toy information and I am toying with the idea of including an entire section for

Even though my focus is on the history of Toyota and it's vehicles, as well as collecting
Toyotamobilia, I also have pages on more current topics, such as Road Tests and New Car Reviews
on current and recent models.

So, please stay tuned, there is a lot more on the way.
