Swiss Bliss

Yank yer Toyoglide out of its peaceful neutral state and slam it into drive, cause Toyotas are invading Switzerland! The Swiss Toyota Museum, located in the unpronounceable municipality of Murschetg, Laax, has enough nostalgic Toyotas to drain an unmarked bank account, yet amazingly, has no affiliation with the Big T itself. All 80 cars are the work of a few independent but incredibly dedicated collectors, whom we salute, big time! Many of the cars are still in the restoration process, but we’re sure they’ll have them ticking like Swiss watches in no time. There even appears to be some Australian spec cars in the in the mix, on one long-ass walkabout. The museum itself, if the online translation is to be believed, was either an abandoned power plant or bat cave. Possibly both. It looks like it’s scheduled to open in summer of 2008, but perhaps our German-speaking readers can succeed where translation software fails. Thanks to Rich at Classic Toyota Town for the tip!
