The Toyota Automobile Museum will hold a rare vehicle exhibition from July 19 to September 28 featuring special-purpose vehicles used in emergency and industrial roles to help celebrate the museum’s 25th birthday.

There will also be a bus tour to see towing tractors working on-site at Chubu International Airport.
