    Motor4Toys.com

    I will be there and I presume a few other Teslas as well on Sunday 12/6/09 from 6:30am - 12pm for the www.Motor4Toys.com event. Bring a toy and help out the kids; bring a Tesla and be amongst nearly 5000 other cars to help them out realize that EV is here to stay (& beating the pants off of ICE)! I'll be there about 9-9:30 & they may try to corral the Teslas together. All the info is on their web site and I am not affiliated. Best, Ian

    2012 Motor4Toys had four Roadsters and three Model S'. Weather was gray but never rained until we were packing up.

    Note the Tesla/Toyota on the left. In a month, two of those Roadsters will also be Model S' owners. All are keeping both so far.We had visits for another Roadster family (2+kid don't fit) and Mike the manager of the new Woodland Hills- Topanga store stopped by.

    Toys were donated including Tesla RC cars for the super lucky kids.

    The Model S' were rock stars. Sold at least two cars for sure.

    Weird to have a guy and his wife who had a friend at Tesla and had got a factory tour find out from me that Tesla had another car. "Ooo cute", she says. sigh....

    I begged for my MSP to be delivered prior to the event and it came about 12 hours before so both Tesla's were able to make the party!

    I guess it shouldn't be too surprising that the Roadsters could fit in one parking space, while the Model S requires two spaces.

    Since I had both the Roadster and the S there I designed the parking arrangements so that we were taking 1 spot per car and 1/2 spot on either side for foot traffic. VFX, doing what he does best, designed the color coordination (though it was a drab day) as well as the Model S, Roadster, Model S theme so it happened that the Model S's straddled the white lines like an old DeLorean! Of course, the symmetry fell apart with Randy's Red Roadster, far left, which is also straddling the line!

    That being said... phunny post IPdamages

    Motor 4 Toys is part car enthusiast (over 5,000 cars) & part philanthropy (nearly 50,000 toys collected for needy children)
    & its FREE (well, bring an unwrapped toy valued at least $10 to donate).
    We'll have our usual cadre of Teslas so why not join the fray?

    Oh, and then there was this posted by the Porsche Club of America - Los Angeles:
    Please join Porsche Club of America - Los Angeles Region as we participate in the 10th Annual Motor 4 Toys Charitable Car Show!

    Motor 4 Toys is a group dedicated to bringing motorsports enthusiasts together to provide toys for less fortunate children. Bring your Porsche and join us as we check out a wide variety of exotic cars and support a wonderful cause.

    Motor 4 Toys received 46,200 donated toys in 2012. This year, they hope to receive over 50,000 donations. Admission is free, but each guest is encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy, valued at over $10.00. So, if you are heading out to the malls on Black Friday to load up the Cayenne, remember to get a couple of toys for the event!

    As we enter into this holiday season and enjoy our 4-wheeled toys, let's remember those in need. We hope you will join us!

    Sunday December 1, 2013
    Anthem Building @ Warner Center
    6:30am - noon

    Event and address details, map, etc. are on our website at:

    Thanks,
    Maggie & Joe & PCA-LA
