I just got this email from Scion. The email said this:

GET YOUR SCION AN AGENT.
IT MIGHT BE FAMOUS.

Whether it’s stock or totally tricked out, Scion wants to make your car a star. Check out this website and sign up for the possibility to have your Scion featured in the next ad campaign. The event and shoot will take place on May 16 & May 17 at a secret location in the Nevada desert. Accommodations are complimentary. It’ll be unreal. Hurry and sign up, because registration ends at midnight on March 31, 2008 (PDT). If selected, you will be notified no later than April 25th.

For more info, check out www.scion.com/scionunited



I just thought i'd share this cuz it'll be crazy to see one of us to be up on a billboard of something!!!

Scion actually just sent me an e-mail yesterday with that link, since i registered my e-mail on scion.com. Sounds interesting, I just don't like the part where it reads "owner is responsible for transportation to and from undisclosed Nevada desert location."

I actually have a photo shoot schedualed on saturday for registering for this. What it means, Ross, is that if they choose your scion and you live on the east coast like us. They are not going to pay you gas or mileage for driving to Nevada. They are however giving you a place to stay, food and entertainment during the two days they use your scion for the commercial stuff.

Cool I won't be the only newsiconxb.com to go. However I still need to find a co-driver. Mine backed out on me. If I don't get one I can't go. Oh yeah and Eric. I need a written permission form to the newscionxb.com decal on my windows. Its standard procedure for any and every decal on my ride that promotes someone else.

Let me put it this way. The reason the entertainment is a "surprise" is because they don't want it getting out to the media and having fans of the whoever it is performing finding out about it and trying to crash the party. We are staying in the Lowes Lake Las Vegas resort. They are giving us $20 for detailing the car so its clean when we drop it off. They are giving both me and Bob a pre-loaded card worth $70 to accomidate three meals. One meal will be taken care of while at the event saturday night. There are going to be product demonstrations, maybe even new products not seen yet. There will be product giveaways, maybe I get lucky and get a supercharger. There is going to be a bunch of activites. Its going to be awsome. Plus friday night and most of saturday morning is ours to do as we please. Yeah its gonna rock. If you count the food, money for detailing, and hotels. I am already getting at least half my money back I spend in gas. Plus there will be a ton of swag. I haven't gotten my packet yet but I head there is stuff in there, including dogtags. Not sure if bob gets a one but I know I do. Plus I know we each get at least one t-shirt for the event. That doesn't even include the fact my car will be seen on tv, or in a magazine, or poster, or maybe even a billboard. Its gonna be so cool. In fact i will be heading over to bobs house about this time next week.

Can you tell I am excited?

The Lake Las Vegas resort area is pretty amazing and a LOT different than staying on the strip. You're definitely in for a treat! :cheers:

I heard a lot of East Coast Scions backed out, there were supposed to be a bunch coming from TX and FL, and they all backed out.

Where are you in S. CA? Im driving from N. Ca to So Cal to Chino area, going to Rotora for the BBK install then heading out to Boulder City from there. When are you leaving? Im a Loews resort tho, but a few of the N. Ca Scikotics are at Green Valley. Might go chill there since Loews doesnt have a casino.

Not sure who you directed that question at, but I live in Allentown PA. I am coming all the way from the east coast. I am staying in Loews as well. I kinda wish I was in GVR cause they have a movie thearter. I plan to hit up Hofbrauhaus friday night though.
