    Thread: Dream Factory Blow Toyota BB

    1. 01-22-2009 05:30 PM #1
      This thing is pretty sweet. In the latest Autoweek. Was at the Tokyo Auto Salon. I believe the xB is available with AWD in Japan as well. Would be a super cool little city truck.

      This miniature Chevy-truck replica is actually based on a Scion xB. Once the company created the custom rear pickup section, it finished off the body in a two-tone matte white and blue paint scheme. Completing the conversion are the "Moon Discs" for the wheels.

      Sorta. It looks like the nose of a C-10 and the (somewhat distorted) proportions of an early Bronco.
      Pretty neat! I could drive it. I'd love to see people's expressions!

      Agreed. That would help it look a little less golf cart-ish. [IMG]http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif[/IMG]

      That is cool beyond belief. I would love to have that as a little run-around vehicle.

      Don't worry, you weren't the only one. Before I read all of it I was thinking "that's a really funky C-10" .
      I'd love to have one of these though, give it minimal options and a quirky interior (not Honda quirky but Cube quirky) and it would be an awesome daily.

      You got your Autoweek already? Damn it! I get mine so much later than other people. That magazine is on my last nerve.

      Bumping an older thread...
      I was trying to find a picture... I think I remember seeing a second one of these converted bB/xBs, and I think I remember seeing two of them side-by-side. Anyone else remember that, or have the picture?
      Another pic of the one above:

      this would be great. i think it would also fill 65% of peoples needs for a pickup. that said it would never sell very many.

      If it was priced like an xB, yes it would.

      Cute, but not practical. It would be a nice coffin tho.
      Also, I wouldn't recommend driving around a vehicle with the word "BLOW" on the back, it may attract unwanted Johns.

      its too bad most americans truck buying habits are bigger is better, a fleet version could be a hit though. could be parts runner for autoparts stores, menards rental trucks for people like me who try and fit 15 bags of mulch into a 95 cutlass (they do fit). majority of people think they would need bigger though.
