2018 Purist Winter Drive – Great Cars, Greater Cause

Photos & Words: Justin P.

“Welcome” – Sometimes it’s a warm greeting, sometimes it’s a response to thankfulness. In either case, both were felt very strongly on the day of the annual Purist Winter Toy Drive in Southern California.

Sean Lee, automotive enthusiast and all-around great person, is the founder and fearless leader of Purist Group. Bonded by a passion for cars, all sorts of people come together for a cause greater than themselves – helping fill kids with smiles and joy this holiday season. With a toy donation as the only requirement, many come to show of their cars in support of all of Sean’s efforts. From imports to domestics, exotics to classics – you’ll find yourself surrounded by an epic mix of vehicles. This annual event continues to grow and grow, with this year arguably the biggest it’s ever been. The amazing support Sean is able to get is very heartfelt, with this year including the California Highway Police, Nitto Tire, Mazda, Reach Out World Wide, Michelin, Lamborghini Newport Beach and much, much more.

Here are a few highlights from the Purist Winter Drive:

Michelin brought out some great cars, but the Blitz R348 GTR is what garnered a lot of attention.

Although the Koenigsegg Automotive AB Agera RS is just as awesome too!

It’s time to party because Adrian Ramirez’s widebody Ford Fiesta ST is here!

If Rudolph ever had to call in sick, Lamborghini Newport Beach is here for Santa!

Even more exotics!

Charity Drive:
Typhoon Yoland/Haiyan devastated the Philippines earlier this month, leaving thousands without the basic necessities of food, water, clothing, blankets, medicine, or even light and warmth. As the death toll rises, we hope to do as much as we can here to collect as many donations as possible to send them out to those in need. While much of the U.S. media and other charity organizations are focusing on Tacloban City, we want our efforts to focus on the other regions that were affected, specifically Panay island.

With Tacloban City being the epicenter of the disaster, that is where all the media we see here is focused on. But the Typhoon impacted more than just that area and we really need to keep thinking of the people suffering in those areas as well. For example, Capiz, a first class province of Panay currently has NO rescue operations, NO media coverage, NO signal, NO relief operations, and almost 95% of the province is down. There is much to be done and we need to make sure we help everyone we can. We hope you can all join us to collect the much needed aid and as one Southern California community yell out, #DAYUUMYOUYOLANDA!

Bake Sale:
Additionally we will have some baked goods available for monetary donations. 100% of the proceeds will go towards getting relief to the Philippines.

Food Trucks & Live Music:
For festivities, the Ninjas With Appetite food truck will be on site for you to grab a bite to eat. All the while, good tunes provided by Infinite Auto Design.
Great opportunity to feed the soul and the stomach.

Car Display & Hot DaYUUM Hunnies:
What DaYUUM event can’t be done without cool cars and hot girls?
After you drop off your donation, feel free to check out the rides by DaYUUM, Infinite Auto Design, Team Klassified, and Scion Evolution. Hot DaYUUM Hunnies will also be on site, in addition to volunteering their time taking in donations they will also be selling prints with 100% of the proceeds going towards our donations. Feel free to pose for pictures and give monetary donations.

DaYUUM Gear:
For every DaYUUM purchase, $1 to $5 will go to the purchase of supplies needed for Taking Action. ($1 per sticker, $5 per hat or shirt).



Show your support! For every donation of $5 or more you will receive a limited edition “TAKING ACTION” decal. Available only on Saturday. While supplies last.
