The San Diego County Fair is back!

The San Diego County Fair is back and Toyota of El Cajon has 2 for 1 Adult Admission Tickets!

In 1880, a group of San Diegans organized an agricultural fair to bring county farmers together to share ideas, see who had the best citrus fruit, who baked the best pie, and who had the fastest horse. After that first fair, the county fair was held annually with a few exceptions in various county locations until 1936, when it moved to its present Del Mar home. During World War II, the Fair was suspended, but has taken place in Del Mar annually since 1946.

This year ‘Game on!’ is the theme for the 2013 San Diego County Fair. The Fair will spotlight classic and nostalgic games From card games to board games, video games to game shows, consoles to cell phones. The San Diego County Fair is the largest annual event in San Diego County and the fourth largest fair in North America, drawing more than 1.5 million visitors annually. 

The San Diego County Fair will open Saturday June 8 and continue through Thursday, July 4. The Fair is closed Mondays, except July 1. You can see all the major upcoming events at www.sdfair.com

Classic Toyota FJ Commercial

For Throwback Thursday we thought we  would share this Classic Toyota FJ Commercial.

 

If you have not gotten a chance to see our beautiful 1970 Land Cruiser FJ40, Come by to Toyota of El Cajon!

Located right behind the front desk, the car was originally purchased in San Diego by Mr. Patrick Edwards in 1970.In 2003, after a little over 30 years of standing still, we at Toyota of El Cajon had the pleasure of being able to buy the car from Mr. Edwards. It arrived to the dealership and after re-filling the fluids we had it up and running like new the very next day.

Our Land Cruiser now only has 3,883 miles on it, still has its original color coating, and the only thing we have done to it is change some of the seals due to weathering.

Check out our Facebook album to see pictures of our 1970 Land Cruiser FJ40.

Bluetooth Technology in Vehicles!

 Bluetooth wireless technology is built into a wide range of products from medical devices to cars and mobile phones. Bluetooth technology was in invented in 1994 by engineers at Ericsson, a Swedish company. In 1998 a group of companies formed the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG), as a way to connect their products. The organization is devoted to maintain the technology and allow for no single company to “own” Bluetooth technology,

  From an automotive perspective, Bluetooth offers the ability to utilize your personal cellphone through an in-car system. It offers safety and convenience of a factory installed car phone combined with the freedom of a handheld cellphone. Using Bluetooth simply changes the device on which your calls are received. Your phone number stays the same and charges appear on your regular cell phone bill. Drivers can operate their cell phones either through the cars controls or via hands free voice activation.

 We have provided a video tutorial on how to pair your Bluetooth device with a 2013 Camry.
