STILLEN founder and owner Steve Millen has again been invited out to the 2010 Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race at the 36th annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach on
April 17, 2010.
Steve Millen will climb into the Scion tC, pitted against a field of 17 other drivers, from long-time STILLEN friend and comedian Adam Carolla, celebrities such as skateboarding legend Tony Hawk, to other racing stars such as drift and X-Games driver Tanner Foust.
Earlier this month we said goodbye again to the STILLEN R35 GT-R after getting the call from Nissan that they would like to bring the GT-R back into Canada for the 2010 Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto.
Nissan arranged for transport, and placed the Targa GT-R in the center of their booth, giving attendees a chance to get inches away from the Orange Godzilla and get a peek for themselves. The show runs through February 21, 2010. [Pictures & Video after the jump]
A little while back we had a chance to meet up with Matt Farah and his awesome crew from TheSmokingTire.com and show them around the buildings here at STILLEN.
Matt and Steve then jumped in the bright orange STILLEN GT-R and took a run through some of the local canyons. See below for the video!
After spending only a short time back home, the STILLEN NADA Guides GT-R is once again going away. This time it is being trucked out to the SEMA show (Nov. 3 – 6 in Las Vegas), where it will be taking up residence in the BASF Automotive Refinish Solutions booth in the Racing and Performance area(booth 21442).

For the past 13 years STILLEN has proudly held a Customer Appreciation day car show. Earlier in 2009 we decided that we would be unable to put together our annual car show as well as offer the Targa Newfoundland prizes and prepare the STILLEN GT-R for the rally. That in itself was a lot of work to prepare for and maintain and doing both would have severely hampered our ability to put on a caliber of show that our customer’s have become accustomed to.
Because we were not going to be hosting the open house event we were also excited of the possibility of our supercharger kit for the VQ37 being ready for unveiling and later in the year so we decided to move the show to October 17th. Well, we are getting closer and closer to October 17th and we have to regretfully inform our customers that we will not be able to host the event in October either.
