Featured inside the official Toyota Motor Sales, USA 2014 SEMA show booth was a 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition pickup like no other Tundra built for celebrity Chef Tim Love
Prominently featured inside the official Toyota Motor Sales, USA 2014 SEMA show booth was a 2014 Toyota Tundra 1794 Edition pickup like no other on the planet. For those that don’t know, the 1794 Edition Toyota Tundra is the highest trim level Tundra available from the factory. The next question that follows is probably “Where did Toyota come up with the name 1794 Edition?” Well the answer requires a bit of a lesson in Texas history. The Toyota plant where the Tundra and Tacoma are built near San Antonio lies on a large plot of land purchased from the oldest working cattle ranch in the state of Texas. The JLC Ranch was founded by Spanish colonist Juan Ignacio de Casanova in 1794, hence name 1794 Edition.
For professional chef Tim Love, who lives by the motto “Eat, Drink, & Live Well”, an ordinary tailgating experience just wouldn’t suffice so he worked with Divine 1 Customs on this Tundra
According to celebrity Chef Tim Love’s website he is often considered an informal ambassador for Texas. Chef Tim Love is a national spokesperson for Hellmann’s Mayonnaise and Thomas’ English Muffins and serves as host of CNBC’s newest show Restaurant Startup. Chef Tim Love opened his first restaurant in the historic Stockyards district of Ford Worth, Texas in 2000. As a true Texan who loves Dallas Cowboys football and the Texas Rangers, it seems only fitting that Love would drive a truck built in and named after the history of the Lone Star State.
