When a friend mentioned that he was heading out to El Toro Marine Base for a day of tuner fun courtesy of GReddy, we decided to tag along and check it out for ourselves. The 2008 GReddy Garage Sale and Performance Festival ended up being a pretty fun event, one of countless such organized automotive activities going on around the country on any given weekend. Seeing as how this particular day of fun was sponsored by GReddy, we were eager to see if we could spot our beloved Five Axis Yaris Club, which featured several GReddy goodies, but alas, it was nowhere to be found. We did see a bunch of GReddy-tuned goodness though, including a couple of Z-cars like the one above that were sporting that trick new VQ35HR twin-turbo system we spotlighted at SEMA last year. If you look closely at our gallery, you'll also spot a different Yaris that tackled the autocross with aplomb. Well, maybe that's a stretch. It certainly leaned a lot less than we expected through the cones.

Check out the gallery to see for yourself. While you're there you'll also see examples of cars participating in other activities, like the Drift 101 demo with a pair of tire-melting Silvias, the Groovy Drift RC demo that rivaled the action on the full-scale tracks, and the huge car club meet with dozens of S2000s, Z-cars, Civic Sis, Evos, STis, RXes, and the like snaking down the old runways for what felt like miles. Besides those sign-then-drive activities there were vendors, a huge free raffle and a big garage sale of GReddy parts with on-site installations and tuning available. Very cool. Best of all, the event was free to all. Without further ado, here are the pics.

      Wouldn't it be nice to advertise these events BEFORE they happen?

      Aside from the chin spoiler, I'm loving the looks of the Miata in #39. Same color and year ('99?)as my daily driver, plus the suspension, aftermarket 15s, and rollbar that mine is crying out for...
