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’ Scion xB with V shaped exhaust
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.
James’ Scion xB with deep dish 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!
Lenny’s Toyota bB with star shaped exhaust
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!
