:) HEY CLUB xB FOLKS !!! :)

Wednesday May 17, 2006 marked the NHK Nippon Hoso Kyokai (Japan Broadcasting Corporation)
Interview and Photoshoot with Scion Owners and their Rides at Longo Toyota / Scion
in El Monte, Southern California !!!

Many thanks to the famous Verone at Longo Toyota / Scion for the invite that day to join
some of our friends from Scion Evolution to be part of this exciting interview and photoshoot.
Because of the time of day and the day of the week it was tough to get many rides out there,
for those that were able to make it, we all had a great time meeting and conversing with the
great folks from NHK !!!

Here's a brief summary of NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) as quoted
from Nikkei Net Interactive:

"NHK (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) is a Japanese media outlet involved in television
broadcasting domestically and overseas. This site contains information about the organization,
its network, its programs and its research, as well as links to news and information updates."


We all had a great time explaining to the great folks from NHK about us as an individual,
our involvement and interests in Scions, and most importantly our satisfaction with the
Toyota product !!!

I was able to take a handful of pictures that day and would like to share them here with you ...

Arriving at the dealership with George aka KOOL B we find that our buddy Jon Sr. there on behalf
of our brother John Jr. was already there along with our friends from Scion Evolution !!!
