I just saw a Scion XB.

....

It was black. "Sand Pearl Black", actually

It looked like a hearse for circus midgets.

And it just SCREAMS "politically Correct"!

It had 5 spoke 20 inch aftermarket wheels... which nicely set off the
massive 9 inch brakes.

i went to the site and peeked anonymously at the "build your own"

http://www.scion.com/bys/pub/start.do?modelType=xb

Look under performance and you can choose from an auto or manual tranny,
plus myriad other performance options, like a rear spoiler and a lot of
neat stuff like a handling package and quick shifter.
So's you can beat those Cobras around the country road curves, I guess.

Oh... and a performance muffler (gee, wonder what that massive 1500 cc, 103
hp 101ft/lb torque screamer sounds like with all that)
Bring on them riced up Fociii!

But I didnt see a towing package so's I could haul my ski-boat!
Guess that's special order or dealer install.

Scions are the modern-day version of the original Beetle.

Hahahaha, I just bought an older 17' Bayliner with an outboard with
close to the hp that things pushing out. My little boat and I thank
you for the chuckle.

Yes, they're issued to metrosexuals in a three pack that includes an
espresso machine and a lifetime pilates membership.

Unfortunately I have to see these festering turd boxes every day at
work. The other day I saw one with neon ground lights, large wheels
and tinted windows. It was such a change of pace from the 1000's of
other xB owners who, conversely, installed window tinting, bigger
wheels, and neon lights under their rides.

Heh, I've been on the lookout for an Xb with water damage at a decent price.
Black would be ideal. I actually like the look of the ugly 'lil thing.

There's a Buick turbo 6 bolted to a fiero transaxle in the garage, it needs a
place to call home. :)

Something tells me you're gonna find it soon.

And THAT is a great idea... the ONLY Xb I'd be interested in.
