Why the fanlisting?
I first saw my first Toyota car when I visited my aunt and uncle in Illinois for the first time when I was around 11 or 12. My aunt had a Toyota Camry and my uncle had a Toyota 2-door red car. I fell in love with my aunt's Toyota Camry. I thought that when I grow up and am able to buy my own car I would get either a Toyota Camry or a Toyota Corolla. I still live the Toyota cars. I don't currently drive one but would love to drive one. In honor of this brand of car I decided to make a fanlisting for it.
