Another bosozoku export car: US Scion xBs styled by James and Lenny!
More than two months ago James sent me an email and I promised to put up his car as a user ride. I did write the post two or three times but never actually posted it because there always came something in between. Last week I found a video (after the jump!) of James’ xB together with another zokusha by Lenny. So, this is the final rewrite of the article, including pictures of Lenny’s Toyota bB as well!
James has created an V shaped exhaust, an oil cooler and extremely widened fenders on his zokusha to fit those 15 inch 13J (ET -94!) Ronal Racing rims.
The Ronal rims are already quite rare in the US, but having them in 13J with such offset is extremely rare! He runs them on adapters since the bolt pattern is 114.3×4 which doesn’t fit any FWD Toyota. Currently he is driving his xB with slicks on the rear wheels.
The bizarre thing is that his car is mostly hated among Scion and Toyota owners, however he did manage to win first prize the xB wild competition at the Scion show in Santa Clarita!
Now, Lenny’s Scion xB is something else: it is currently badged as a Toyota bB (that’s how they are sold in Japan), has a star shaped exhaust and doesn’t even have on fender extenders!
And in case you wonder how deep his dish is… Well, this is how deep it is!
You can see both zokushas in action (together with Lenny’s Scion xB as well) in this video:
Unfortunately Lenny’s bB didn’t have the deep dish yet (he runs the car on Toyota Snowflakes there!), but you will get the picture I guess!
The car is so low it barely made it on and off the trailer. 😉
I love the extra widened fenders and the simplicity of the car styling: not too overdone. The original metro grip is a nice touch though, however you can buy them anywhere nowadays… This is how low the car actually is:
Anyway, if you didn’t get what this video was about from the scenery and parkinglot: the guy who put the video on Youtube sold the car to an export firm and it got exported to another country. So who of you actually bought this nice Bosozoku styled car?by bosozoku with 6 comments
