Hey boys and girls. Just wanted to say hi . I bought a 05 2.0 series a little over a month ago. Found it in my home town of Red Deer, Alberta. It was yellow and manual and for a bonus had 17 wheels already on it. SOLD LOL. I also own a superchargered ford focus in pretty much exact same yellow, kind of funny actually. But ya i just wanted to say hi and hope all of ya luv your xb's as much as i do.

first night i had it i had three people ask me what it was while i was gassing it up. Everywhere i go people jsut stare its so funny. You love them or you don't right haha.

Mods on it when i bought it:
-17 wheels (unknown brand of wheel never seen symbol before)
-AEM intake with AEM oil cap
-my firends think it also has lowering springs but i'm not sure?

and i've done myself so far:
- Kenwood indash DVD player
- car starter/alarm

So theres my box for ya. When i actually take a pic of it i'll post it for all of ya.

Welcome to the family! :D

There are a few other Canadian Scion owners on this and the other site who would probably like to hear from you, also.

I know every time I've had my box up in Vancouver, B.C. that the looks it gets are amazing.

Enjoy the box!

(I used to have a yellow Focus, too...)

Haha, I was looking at that xB when I was shopping around. The only thing that made me a little weary about it was the 46k on the odometer. I ended up buying a 2006 BOP from Country Hills Toyota in Calgary.

Nice to see another toast rider in Alberta!

Sir, step away from the vehicle, your hands equipped with a camera!! I'm warning you!

Hi! In order to serve us better, a few pics of the mad whip are needed. Please respond immediately, or you will be poked with the Angry Trident of Bloodcurdling Revenge......

Welcome to the boards! I try to liven things up around here. Sooner or later, I will grow tired of pic policedom.

Welcome Dryko!

Are you and Mightbegiant anywhere near each other?

Just think, if you get that much attention riding alone what would happen if you had a few together. . . ;)

Welcome to the club. I was just in Medicine Hat a couple weeks ago with my xB. If there is ever a meet in Alberta let me know I am only about 30 miles from the border.

I can answer that question about weather. It really depends on the year. Buuut on average we have about 5 months or so where the weather is constant above freezing. Usually April to October. From there the weather is all over the place. Sometimes it snows in May (odds are thisyear it will), and sometimes it's 60 degrees fahrenheit in December.

Sucks for people who have to garage their car for the cold season... or seasons depending on where you are.

A little vague to be 8 miles from Canada. I'm 4 hours from the border of Montana and Dryko is about 5 1/2. Buuut if there is ever a close enough meet, i'll see what I can do... and sorry for hijacking this thread.

Shortbus_8 (dave) is in Ferndale, or close to Bellingham, Washington if you are familiar. Which is closer to Vancouver.
