My Scion xB
#1
Once upon a time, I use to drive a 93' GMC Yukon.
Then one day, I had an electrical fire and the thing burned down in my driveway... not too proud of that.=S
So I had to buy a new car and ended up with this:

Went autocrossing for a bit.

That's my budd Bert with his F22 powered AE86

Then found so nice 5Zigen Heidfeld and got them custom painted.

Then I did a rendering of an idea I wanted to try so here it is.

and I loved it so I went ahead and fabricated the hood.

And now I took the hood back off to get it painted the color of the car.
That's pretty much it. I will post update later when the hood is finished.

Hell yeah! I'd throw a BEAMS 3S-GE in it in a heartbeat... if I had the cash of course.
I already thought about it. I could get a Lexus IS and scavenge for engine, drivetrain and all, but it's some mighty work.
I saw the Rogue Status 2Jz powered xB but it's, again, even more work because it's so much bigger.
I think the BEAMS would be perfect because it's still light and powerfull.
A flat 4 from a FRS could be nice too.

You've actually done a really good job with this car, and I love how it turned out. I certainly wouldn't have traded the paint matched 5Zigen's though. The color matched lip looked much better in my eyes. Still .. One of the better xB's I've seen. Very creative!
