Wow, what an awesome day. The Toymods Classic Celica Appreciation Day just gets better and better every year. This is certainly my favourite event on the Toymods Calendar and seeing more and more of these old Celicas attending each year just makes it all the more enjoyable. I’m already excited about planning next years event.
So lets start with the cars. At Wisemans Ferry we had a total of 46 celicas including:
2 RA40’s including the ex Peter Williamson Bathurst race car
6 ST185’s and
On top of that we had a few other cool Toyotas including Stitts awesome Crown Wagon, Dunebobs rockabilly Stout and a mint little KE Corolla. There was a few unfortunates though that fate wouldn’t see attending, including Danaes beautiful 23, Thomas’s 22 (which did make it to the meet point) and my ST205 who’s designated driver was nursing a hangover…… Happy Birthday Vito
A big thankyou to our Sponsors who contributed to the day and offering the great prizes for the raffle and showbags for the entrants.
# Coffeefest – for the yummy Gellato
# Mothers Polishes provided a bucket full of Mothers and MLH car care products.
# Bendix Brakes provided a voucher for a set of front and rear brake pads
# Motul Oils provided some Oil, some car seat covers and of course the basis for the goodie bags handed out to everyone who attended.
# Wholesale Suspension Penrith provided 3 gift certificates for a wheel alignment
# Matespace and Zen Garage provided a $100 gift voucher for Zen Garage
# DBA and Motul for the Goodie bags that were handed out to all the cars that attended.
The Australia Down For Depression raffle raised $285 for SANE Australia. This is in addition to the donation Toymods had already made.
Thanks to Dunebob, Schmidt and PH@_MAN for dragging down the BBQ and tirelessly turning sausages all afternoon for us.
Thanks also to The Hills Shire Council for once again allowing us to use this amazing location for this event and thankyou to all attendees for respecting the grounds and leaving them clean and green.
And thanks to all those that traveled long distances to attend this event. We had cars from Newcastle, ACT and Queensland attending and I know of at least one car from Victoria that had planned on attending but unfortunately couldn’t make it.
It is a little bit of work to organise these events but seeing so many of these old cars turn up and talking to the attendees and reading your responses makes it more than worth the effort. A big thankyou to everyone that turned up to make this a fantastic day I know I met a lot of new faces on the day and I’m only sorry I didn’t get to meet more of you. See you all next year.

ps I did actually have a car there, mine was the sexy little white TA22 with the stripes parked near the gate.
