This is the time of year to think of those less fortunate. Kids shouldn’t go without a Christmas gift, so the Marine Corps does a great job with the Toys for Tots program. In order to make sure South Florida gives its fair share, the Toy Rally completed their 12th annual event. The last 3 years were plagued by bad weather, but the skies were clear for this year’s run. Officially known as the “South Florida Exotic Car TOY RALLY”, it is made possible by being fully supported by state and local law enforcement.

2017 South Florida Exotic Car Toy Rally for Toys for Tots

It is hard to find a meeting space for over 300 exotic cars, so Goodyear opened the doors of Airship Base.Attendees were treated to a nice meal with the backdrop of the big Wingfoot One. It looks like a blimp, but Goodyear partnered with the Zeppelin company to build a new generation of Airship. The starting point was the BB&T Center, which is home to the Florida Panthers. Marines collected $75,000 in cash and cheques, along with 100% of proceeds from the event’s auction. At the end of the run, the Corps had a mountain of toys on their hands. We are very blessed to be part of this hobby, so think about the little ones this year and check out the highlights in the video below.
