How's that for an introduction.
Well. My name is Mark. In 2006, I won a car. I won 2006 Hyundai Tiburon - Tuscani. I was also an avid participant of newtiburon.com...... very similar to newscionxb.com.
Yeah. I'm a very fortunate dude. I won the car (a blue 4 cyl automatic) and then traded it up for a 6 speed, V6 version, in yellow.
This car was my everything. I rebadged the back to the Korean badges. This was my Porsche. People would point and look and admire my car.
My license plate is U2BROTHR. I'm the dark skinned fellow who would drive his tiburon from U2 show to U2 show (not to worry, I listen to other music too....like rock, house, techno - U2 is just such a rush to see live). My car became famous. After going to many shows and meeting the band many times, I managed to get a picture snapped with my idol on my ride.
Ok.. ok.. ok... so where does the xB come into all of this. Stay patient.
After 7 years (almost eight years) and only 106K kms.... I managed to rear end a delivery truck. Car was smashed up.
My insurance didn't want to fix it. My god. My baby. I managed to get a very good pay out for the car.....but thought.... what am I gonna drive? That car was such a big part of my life. My identity... my almost everything.
Then some incredible news came. My wife and I are expecting. So um... that means, no more sport coupes. Where can I find a rare and peculiar looking car, that can hold my wife and future child, as well as a car that I can mod (I modded that tiburon let me tell ya), as well as a vehicle that is offered in standard transmission (I refuse to own an automatic).
I literally googled car manufacturers found in Canada.....and went down the list to every web page.
Then I came to Scion. Huh? What? Let's see what they have......boom. I fell in love with the xB. It fit all of the above criteria.
Long story short. I bought one. A 2013. A white one. I don't even have it yet. I am picking up on Monday. I'm already trying to price out a short shifter, bumper guard, and CAI.
I'M POSTING BECAUSE I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THIS RIDE....other than there are people who make it look incredible...and that it is kind of a rare vehicle.
Looking forward to learning about this incredible ride. Maybe, somehow, I can make this one famous too
