Since 2015, we’ve col­lab­o­rated with Toyo Tires to pro­duce an an­nual cal­en­dar that gets glued be­tween the pages of this month’s is­sue. Now, if you’re a sub­scriber, we apol­o­gize with flow­ers and choco­lates, as this is a spe­cial treat found only in news­stand copies. Please for­give us, as the pro­duc­tion and dis­tri­bu­tion costs of pack­ag­ing the cal­en­dar within the sub­scriber copies (which costs you $.84 an is­sue if you paid for two years) doesn’t make fi­nan­cial busi­ness sense. Hope­fully, you won’t hate us for­ever, but none­the­less, whether you're a sub­scriber or found us at Barnes and No­ble, you get to check out this ex­clu­sive fea­ture of the new Toyo Girls four­some. We hope you en­joy our “desert vibes” shoot with pho­tog­ra­pher John Kingston as well as seven stand­out Toyo-equipped cars.

This year’s Toyo Girls all hail from Cal­i­for­nia; how­ever, you can meet them at nearly ev­ery ma­jor car show across the na­tion Toyo sup­ports, in­clud­ing Tuner Evo­lu­tion, Spocom, and Stan­ce­na­tion. We’ll also be host­ing our own cal­en­dar launch car meets this Jan­uary, so stay tuned for our an­nounce­ment—and don’t miss a chance to meet these four lovely ladies!

SS: Where’d you grow up and where do you now call home? Ash­ley: I grew up in a small town in Con­necti­cut, but I cur­rently live in LA. Brooke­lynn: I was born and raised in Or­ange County.

Dree: I grew up in the San Bernardino Moun­tains, but now I live in On­tario. Jaylin: Born in the SGV (San Gabriel Val­ley) and still call it home.

SS: Be­sides be­ing a cool Toyo Girl, what do you do for a liv­ing? Ash­ley: After I grad­u­ated busi­ness school, I was asked to film a Real World sea­son and have been in the en­ter­tain­ment in­dus­try ever since! I feel so blessed for all the projects I’ve got­ten to be in­volved with and all the amaz­ing places I’ve got­ten to travel to. In ad­di­tion to mod­el­ing, I write fit­ness/nu­tri­tion plans for clients all around the coun­try.

Brooke­lynn: I’m a full-time model and ac­tress. I’m also a full-time col­lege stu­dent study­ing to be­come a foren­sic sci­en­tist and crime scene in­ves­ti­ga­tor.

Dree: I model full-time and make Youtube videos for a liv­ing right now.

Jaylin: I’m a li­censed nurse—i grad­u­ate in June 2019 with my RN li­cense. I’m also a Corona Ring girl and fash­ion model.

SS: Tell us one or two of your hob­bies. Ash­ley: My fa­vorite thing to do is travel and ex­plore the world.

Brooke­lynn: My fa­vorite ac­tiv­ity is ab­so­lutely any­thing ad­ven­tur­ous. I love trav­el­ing and mak­ing new mem­o­ries more than any­thing else. You can typ­i­cally find me hik­ing or on some ran­dom road trip.

Dree: My fa­vorite ac­tiv­ity is play­ing dif­fer­ent sports, work­ing out, and stay­ing healthy.

Jaylin: I en­joy ex­er­cis­ing, shop­ping and vol­un­teer­ing.

SS: First car and what did you love or hate about it?

Ash­ley: My first car was a GTI, and I loved it. I thought I was so cool hav­ing the cute hatch­back that I could throw my snow­board in and cruise around town. The only thing I hated about it was the elec­tri­cal is­sues it started hav­ing—and the fact that I had to start it with a screw­driver... Yeah, I don’t know, ei­ther...

Brooke­lynn: Toby! My first car was an ’07 Toy­ota Corolla, which is ac­tu­ally the car I still have. He’s been a real trooper and got­ten me ab­so­lutely ev­ery­where I need to go without giv­ing me any trou­ble. I have really put the lit­tle guy through the ringer, but he’s never failed me. I don’t hate any­thing about him.

Dree: My first car was a white Subaru Out­back. I loved that it worked and got me through the snow, but I hated the style.

Jaylin: Toy­ota Camry—loved that it was cheap on gas but the color was green.

SS: If you won the lot­tery to­mor­row, what would you splurge on? Ash­ley: I would pay off any debt my fam­ily had and take them all on va­ca­tion to wher­ever they have al­ways dreamed of go­ing. Then I’d prob­a­bly buy my mom a house and go live in it with her.

Brooke­lynn: Shoot... This is a really hard one. Hon­estly, I would prob­a­bly use the money to travel the world. I would also make sure my fam­ily was taken care of so none of them had to work any­more. Then, I would buy an R8.

Dree: That would never hap­pen be­cause I have the worst luck!

Jaylin: Buy­ing my­self a new house and also buy­ing my mom one!

SS: Ideal date…if there is one?

Ash­ley: Do­ing some­thing ad­ven­tur­ous I nor­mally wouldn’t do my­self, then go­ing to an in­ti­mate din­ner where we would talk for hours, and end­ing the night with a walk or dance on the beach. I’m a hope­less ro­man­tic!

Brooke­lynn: Any­thing ad­ven­tur­ous that makes for a great story and mem­ory. I love it when I can tell a guy put a lot of thought into a date, be­cause it makes me feel so spe­cial. Any­thing from a trip to the zoo to a pic­nic with a view!

Dree: Wher­ever, as long as it’s with the right per­son!

Jaylin: Din­ner at a restau­rant I’ve never been to and a show.

SS: What are you look­ing for­ward to most about be­ing a 2019 Toyo girl?

Ash­ley: I’m look­ing for­ward to the peo­ple I’m go­ing to meet all around the coun­try! I love get­ting to know peo­ple who have walked dif­fer­ent paths than I have.

Brooke­lynn: I am so ex­cited for ev­ery­thing! I think I’m most ex­cited to travel and meet dif­fer­ent peo­ple from dif­fer­ent places, but I’m also ex­cited to ex­pand my knowl­edge about cars and tires. Dree: See­ing new things and meet­ing amaz­ing new peo­ple! Jaylin: Trav­el­ing, meet­ing dif­fer­ent peo­ple, and ex­pe­ri­enc­ing dif­fer­ent cul­tures.
