You have to give it to the Scion xB. I can?t think of another car deserving to be euthanized more than the xB. It?s lived past its life, so much so that its quirky competitors — the Nissan Cube and the Honda Element — have all gone the wayside. Yet the xB remains and somehow, it?s even making yearly pilgrimages to the SEMA Auto Show.
This year, the xB rides into the biggest aftermarket auto show in the world, heavily customized with the vibe of the 70s, mixed with splashes of rock ?n? roll, and skateboarding. Those three things are passions of pro skateboarder Riley Hawk who lent his name in the creation of the Scion x Riley Hawk Skate Tour xB.
The build is still ongoing and is led by Scott Kanemura of KMA Productions. So far, these rough sketches are the only things we have to show you as far as visual evidence of the car?s existence is concerned. I?m personally interested to see how this build turns out, not because I?m a fan of the xB, but because I want to see how much customization goes into turning the xB into a respectable ride.?[...]
