Findlay Toyota is burning up with Golden Knights fever
Knights fever has clearly swept across the Vegas Valley. No expansion team has ever performed so well in their inaugural year and few cities have waited so long for professional sports as did Las Vegas. Add to that the fact that most of the staff at Findlay Toyota are such die-hard sports fans and you’ve got a recipe for extreme fans.
One manifestation of Findlay Toyota’s support has been the VGK wraps they’ve put on various vehicles including a 2018 Toyota 4Runner. Now for sale at Findlay Toyota in the Valley Auto Mall, the idea to customize the 4Runner was the brain child of marketing director Stephanie Bernas.
“We have Findlay Customs at Toyota with Stu Brown, who is the service advisor for Customs that helped this creation come together” explained Jimmy Crook, social media consultant for Findlay Customs. “We lettered the 4Runner and also did the VGK center caps on all four wheels and we also added a VGK sticker kit all the way around the truck.” Findlay Toyota Parts installed the lift and wheels.
“It’s the perfect way to grow both companies, while supporting our local community,” said Crook, a 26 year-native of Miami, Fla.
Lettering included “Vegas Born,” “Knight Up” and “Vegas Strong” with logos on the head rest and on the hood.
In addition, Findlay Customs custom-painted the Toyota badges, along with the TRD Pro Grill to match the Golden Knights colors. Stu Brown, service advisor for Findlay Customs, said “a teamwork developed between Toyota and Customs which led to the project.”
“It’s a symbiotic relationship,” said Brown, who has been with Findlay Customs for about three years. We also have Tundra that is part of our program. We do a lot of fun stuff here.”
Findlay Custom is now in the expansion mode adding a new paint booth while also expanding to more than 18,000 square foot facility next to Findlay Toyota. A red carpet event is scheduled for late summer to show the enhanced capacity of the new facility.

“My team did a great job on this collaboration with Findlay Toyota and I’m really happy with the result!” Austin said, adding. “God Knights Go!”
