They meet every Sunday morning in a parking lot in The Valley. They have for years. They drink coffee, kick tires and admire fine and not so fine automobiles. The name Supercar Sunday was adopted along the way. Depending on the occasion some gatherings are larger than others.
And this weekend's gathering promises to be one of the largest as FIAT brand North America and Chrysler Group's California Business Center have stepped up to help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Motor4Toys Charity Car Show and Toy Drive -- helping to collect toys for Southern California's less fortunate youth.
"When we first heard of this cause and event we immediately wanted to become involved," Jason Stoicevich, Head, FIAT Brand North America and Director of Chrysler Group LLC's California Business Center, said. "As a car company with a very loyal and large consumer base of hard core enthusiasts, we knew we could help. Additionally, helping underprivileged children is near and dear to our hearts here at Chrysler Group California. We admire what Dustin Troyan and the Motor4Toys event has been able to accomplish and look forward to helping this year and into the future."
"We truly appreciate the support of the FIAT brand, to have a global brand behind and supporting Motor4Toys is unbelievable," said Dustin Troyan president and founder of Motor4Toys. "This would not be possible without the unbelievable car community coming together; I am honored and grateful to be part of it."
All car enthusiasts and the general public are invited to admire the cars from the early morning until mid-day. Admission is only the donation of at least one new unwrapped toy of at least a ten dollar value. All toys will be distributed by Southern California charities during the coming holiday season.
