After the long, anticipated wait (that's sarcasm there my friends) the Toyota Avalon pictures have hit, and like predicted, nothing too earth shattering. The biggest issue, other than blandness (which is an asset in these kinds of cars) is the "beak" on the front. The interior is very nice. Toyota has one thing down straight – they have already started to build the 2005 Avalon before this "official" unveiling, unlike some other car companies (GM cough-cough) who love to show you a car two years before they are to produce it. Very lame marketing strategy. The buzz wears off. Anyways, Happy New Year as the Avalon post will mark my first of 2005… very memorable (there's that sarcasm again).
