It's a two hour drive from Huntington Beach, but I'm going. I only got to see the shell at the Pomona event so I'm looking forward to sitting inside one and seeing if that ol' jeep feeling (I sold mine and got a Solara) is there.

I sold my wrangler because it fell apart at 100K. I got the Solara so I could have a nice reliable ride. I miss the rugged drive and feel that a part of my manhood left when that jeep did. Looks like the FJ is going to give me back my balls and won't break down on me when I'm hauling them around.
By the way Toyota, I'm an advertising major. You can use that last line in an ad if you give me a discount on my FJ!

Dude, change your major so you can afford to pay for the FJ. Nice line though I'll put together a poster!

I'm going too! What's supposed to happen at these kind of events? ... I've never been to one, and I'm only going because this new FJ is VIAGRA ON WHEELS !! eh, hbfj?

BTW, is it ok to bring wives/ girlfriends along...? (I know she'll want to see my new mistress!)

I guess we'll find that out when our passes arrive...?

Got my ticket today-- NO GUESTS! ~~~~ bummer... oh, well. Wifey is going to have to stay home with the dogs! Have to park at Ojai Valley Inn and take a bus ride and we won't return to the Inn until 5pm... Just an idea: Anyone know if there's shopping in Ojai a lady could do for 6 hours?? mmmmm.... Maybe I could tempt her with a day spa. They must have one there...

Open to day spa guests, the spa has 28 peaceful treatment rooms (six with fireplaces), for a full range of body and facial treatments, including aromatherapy, massage and hydrotherapy. Also offered are the hydrating Elderberry Wrap and the Ojai Honey Scrub.

Oh, and while your seeing the FJ keep asking about pricing until they give in and tell you or kick you out. :D

Hi I won a pass to the OJAI event too but unfortunately, I can't go! I posted the ticket on ebay. I saw another person do the same. I really want to go but damn! Good luck on bid.

I just got my ticket this evening!! Has anyone called the 800 number to confirm yet? Anyone know how many people are expected and if we will get to drive an fj? On the ticket there is a tear off stubb that says redeem for FJ Bonus. I wonder what that might be?

Got my pass today, and I just called the 800 # to confirm my registration. I was told there will be vehicles available for driving. Yes! But I'm guessing that we'll be offered a ride-along with a Toyota driver.

On the other hand, a bunch of test drives could be scheduled from 2:00 - 5:00pm. "Casual attire recommended" makes me think we might have a chance to get dirty.

Dude, I am so jealous - I would bet the FJBonus is similar to what we got at the FJ afterparty for those of us who were blessed by the Toyota gods to get to attend that one, but the driving part is REALLY COOL!

The most important thing here is that you should all have an awesome time.

I know it might be a long shot, but if anyone is unable to go, I'll gladly take your pass! I live 20 minutes away in Ventura.

Then again, these passes probably will have your name on them and my i.d. doesn't have your name on it.

Anyway, just keep me in mind guys (and gals)! :eek:

EDIT: To those buying tickets... I hope they don't match the ticket stub # to the original ticket holder's name at the door. :eek:

"Hello I am really shallow and selling my ticket for an event which was given to me for FREE and I had no intention of going to."

I'd love to go, but I am not paying $50 to somebody just because they entered the registration and happen to live in SoCal.

Well, it turns out that I am just crazy enough to fly from MD to CA for this event. I found "resonable" airfare and a cheap rental car and was pretty much set. Before I booked anything I called Toyota to see whether I would be allowed to enter with "my friend's pass" or if I could get his pass transfered to my name because he would not be able to attend and "I would be in the area".

No dice, Toyota says that for private events such as this passes can not be used by anyone other then the person they were issued to and they cross reference the list of winners when you check into the event. Obviously this could just be what they tell idiots like me to keep some control over the event but I'm not willing to chance it.

He also said that the are talking about planning events similar to Ojai across the US but nothing is set in stone yet.

Well, at least my wife will be happy I am not spending the money to fly across the US "just to see a truck".

I think this is good to hear. I think it should be reserved to those people that registered in order to prevent them from turning a profit from it. Serves them right. Now they can get a mouthful of negative feedback after some poor sap can't get in the door.

And Granger, how long have you been married? i know better then to tell my fiancee that I am flying across the country "to see a truck". When I originally thought about going, I just told her that I had business in California. This line is always better when explaining something irrational that I am doing.

I even pointed out that "I registered months ago", they were unmoved..... :D
