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.
