Toyota is sponsoring the 2014 Motor City Comic Con. They will display this Toyota Highlander inspired by SpongeBob SquarePants at the convention, which is held in the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi from May 16-18. This year is the 25th anniversary of the Comic-Con.

The exterior of the SpongeBob SquarePants car resembles a mobile version of SpongeBob. Toyota says the interior captures the essence of SpongeBob's home, Bikini Bottom. Toyota will make a charitable contribution to Help for Heroes at the convention.

Curt McAllister, Midwest Public Relations Manager for Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., says in a statement, "We are extremely excited to be sponsoring Motor City Comic Con this weekend. As a self-proclaimed 'fan boy,' I have seen this convention evolve into one of the most significant shows of its kind in the Midwest. With 40,000 people expected this weekend, we're confident that their 25th year will be their best year yet."
