New Toyota Tundra goes to the fair

At this year's Indiana State Fair, the lucky people of Indianapolis will not only get their fill of deep fried Oreos and Kid Rock (seriously, he's playing) but also get an exclusive look at Toyota's newest heavy-duty pickup.

The new Tundra, which made its debut at the Chicago Auto Show, will be displayed in prototype form for fair goers to gawk at, however, the pickup is still only classified as a showpiece so don't plan on seeing it transporting the petting zoo crew.

We were a bit confused as to why Toyota chose this venue, of all places, to display its new workhorse. We later found out that way back in 1998, the original Tundra came out to the public at the Indiana State Fair and Toyota saw no reason to mess with the forces of tradition this time around. Additionally, since the new Tundra will be jointly manufactured in Princeton, Indiana and San Antonio, Texas, this provides another opportunity for the Japanese manufacturer to show its wares to the consumers most likely to purchase their newest line of pickups.

Alright Indianapolisians, where's a photo?
