OK,I know this is going to sound a a bit odd, but the last few times my son has gotten into the box, he's told me he smells meatballs. I don't smell it, but maybe I am used to it?

Anyway, has anybody told you you've got an odd smell in your xB?

People used to tell me my New Beelte smelled like crayons....

Oh, the FOOD!

I thought and was expecting a discussion on the adding of "meatballs" to the exterior, like classic sports racers and formula cars.
Meatball: the round circle that surrounded the number:




I was going to say . . . I LOVE the idea!

Is there a small rodent cook/fried up in the engine bay?

Sautéed Squirrel?
Cajun Chipmunk?
Minced Mouse?
Roasted Rat?

No, I do not eat in it, and I have not been to a Subway since May, and that was in Las Vegas while my xB was still in PA.

If my xB was black, I'd put this on it :


Didn't think to look in the engine bay! Have to take care of that later :)

I must just be lucky, people tell me that my xB and my 10 year old Sebring still smell new!

Could there be a food place near where your xB is parked gathering those great smells during the day while at work or home?

I don't know. People call me I'm an "old fart" all the time.

That's funny....we had talked about doing this on the Avon Mobile with the number 05 which stands for the year we started the business....but I decided not to go with the racing theme my husband wanted...all the way down to signatures/names above the door and "Avon Product" decals ala sponsorship style.....

If anything, I think I'd smell like M&M's :)
Then, you'd smell like ME!

Well if you went with the racing style you could have lipstick style racing stripes.

Look onto the WRC race car look thread . . .
http://newscionxb.com/2nd_gen_scion..._visually-t2037.0.html;msg18706;topicseen#new

That MIGHT be more into what you are after.
I could SO see you actually do it! You already are making your box into a "rolling billboard" for Avon, why not make it a WRC/rally look that sets YOUR Avon apart from the other Mary Kay and Avon stickered cars!
(Somebody should, why not YOU!)

So I really goofed my last post...putting my thoughts into Avons quote...sorry. :eek:hno:

I meant to say and not put words in Avon's (mouth) post....if you went with racing stripes you could use a lipstick style strip or zig zag like they do in advertisements.
